Can't see the header image - CSS color covers image?

  1. I'm trying to get the header image to show up, but all I get is a white header. If I change the color of the header in the CSS, I see the new color.

    Anyone have any ideas?

  2. The CSS overrides the image uploader. Just add the URL for the image into your CSS file.

  3. thanks drmike... still doesn't seem to be working though. mind taking a look? here's the part I added the URL to:

    #topbar {
    max-width:750px;
    height:25px;
    line-height:23px;
    background:#000;
    background-image: url(http://farm1.static.flickr.com/135/376216581_5614b833aa_o.jpg);
    overflow:hidden;
    border-bottom:0 black solid;
    margin:0;
    }

  4. Gotta admit that I never like the idea of using an off site URL since then you're relying on yet another server. Why not upload it into your space and use it from there?

    When I load it, I do it as the following:

    #headerimg {<br /> margin: 0 0 0 5px;<br /> height: 171px;<br /> width: 100%;<br /> background: url('http://kpremixed.tdjc.be/wp-content/themes/sapphire/images/newheader.PNG') no-repeat bottom center;<br /> }

    Note the quotes and the fact that I'm loading that directly to the background as a background and not even bothering with the background color. And mine uses a different div too.

    Your picture actually comes up for me but I know it's in my cache so that may be way.

    Try it as above and see what happens for you. I would recommend clearing your browser cache before looking again of course.

    hope this helps,
    -drmike

  5. wp.com's CSS editor actually automatically adds the single quotes.

    but yes, i see the header as well, did you fix it yourself?
