Thesis Theme for Wordpress - Easy Way To Change Header / Colour Scheme?

4 replies
I recently bought the Thesis theme for my new blog on Wordpress, and I want to replace the header with a customized header of my own. This is turning out to be more difficult than I expected.

Does anybody have experience with the Thesis theme? Is there an easy way to change the header and change the colour scheme?

I tried checking the Thesis site forums, but it seems that the responses that people with the same problem are getting are leading to more headaches than solutions.

Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Place this in your custom.css

    .custom #header #logo a { display:block; height:120px; width:900px; background:url('images/header.gif') no-repeat; outline:none }
    .custom #header #logo,.custom #header #tagline
    { text-indent:-9999px }
    .custom #tagline{height:0;}

    make sure to change the width and height and replace the background url with your own. The above code gives you a clickable header

    if you want to move your navigation menu to the bottom of the header instead of the top add this in your custom_functions.php file

    remove_action('thesis_hook_before_header','thesis_ nav_menu');
    add_action('thesis_hook_after_header','thesis_nav_ menu');

    Nick, hi,

    You also mentioned colour scheme - in 1.6 you can do most colour changes from the Design Options screen. The ones you still need to do in the custom.css file are things like sidebar backgrounds.

    But I think all the rest you can do in Design Options.
