Need Help with Custom Wordpress Blog Header

by 5 comments
I have a custom header image that is uploaded to my wordpress blog. However, my theme requires that the header stretch across the width of the page.

Problem is that on my computer when the header looks fine, it looks distorted on other screens and vise versa. Arrghhh!

How do I adjust the code so that the header adjusts to the width of the screen no matter what the screen resolution is?

    Without looking at your site, you will probably need to go into your WP theme's CSS file and find the code that looks something like this:

    #header {

    clear: both;

    padding: 10px;

    margin: 0 auto;

    background: url( other)/header.jpg) top right no-repeat;

    height: 150px;

    And make your modifications in there.

    Also check if you theme has an IE6 or Opera dedicated CSS file, you may have to change that as well.

    Good luck!

      Usually with something like a header if it is just a graphic, I work backwards. Find the size of the image first. Then create a new file with all the same sizing (like in photoshop) and drag the image you want to use into it. Tweek it to fill in the desired space. Rename it the same as the file you're replacing and upload it with a file manager or FTP and write over the old file.

    Some warriors think that is very important to make a clear difference between a copywriter, content writer, and writer. Honestly, I thought it wasn't such a big deal. Then, after seeing that this question repeats itself more than once in a few threads, I decided to pay attention to it. It turns out that you think you know, at least this was the case with me, but actually you don't. So, I did a little bit a research about it. A writer is a general term. Hope we can all agree about it. As soon as we associate money and sales with the writing we enter the copywriting zone. I used this formula, which helped me to better understand this semantics gymnastics. Let's see how accurate it is:

    I listed for sale to afford me time and resources to build I had in mind to sell at 70k or something around that figure. Brokers evaluated it to worth $90k - $105k but I don't want to wait too long to sell. The site receives 150k users monthly with up to 400k page views. All the traffic comes from Google search. The niche is celebrity news and current affairs. The website currently has over 2,000 green articles.

    Christmas is coming, and you all know what that means, Christmas is also one of those moments of year when marketers burns their brains out for creating good an innovative ideas for their campaigns, the money will be out for the taking, and a good marketing campaign is essential for gaining at least a portion of it. Influencer marketing has been one of the brand favorite techniques for getting their products out there, they have really been investing a lot of money and resources on this kind of marketing, and it has really been giving a lot of results, people tend to trust in the influencers they follow, so when they recommend a product, their followers buy it, it really quite simple. However there is a new kind of influencers being born: the microinfluencers, this is, people that have small audiences instead of big ones, you know, people who has 1000 or 5000 followers on Twitter or Instagram instead of a million, brand are starting to target them for their campaigns, and there are several reasons that explain this:

    Hello Warriors. I was wondering if any of you could lend me a little advice I'm planning to launch a new product next month in the music niche. I've created 3 free videos to give to my JV partners as part of the pre-launch. Here's my problem: 8 of my JV partners aren't familiar with product launches or with e-mail marketing. They use Facebook groups to communicate with their audience (<---- that's the bad news)
