having problems with header, Untitled theme

  1. I am setting up a second blog using the Untitled theme. I am having trouble with the header and header text.

    On the general page I made my blog title and tag line and saved. I cannot see the text on the header. I go to Appearance and header and there is no header text selection to work with, ie. change font color. When I compare my blog to other Untitled blogs, they do have header text. Suggestions?

    Also, when I go to the header to post an image, the image does not completely fill the header box. There is a suggested pixel but how do I know when I've cropped to the suggested number? I've tried various sizes so far. And when I compare my header to other Untitled headers, their header box is completely filled with an image.

    Thanks. I'm about ready to change themes . . . frustrated.

    The blog I need help with is cyndiheath.wordpress.com.

  2. a) "Suggested" pixel dimensions means better create an image in these dimensions. If you upload an image that has different dimensions and choose to crop it, it will always be cropped to these dimensions: you only select which part of it will be used.
    b) The header image on Untitled doesn't work as on most themes. It's not designed for a full-width image, it's designed for a small logo. Check the theme demo:
    http://untitleddemo.wordpress.com/
    The header image is designed to replace "Untitled" in the black menu bar with a more interesting version of "Untitled".
    So if you want a colored blog title, you create that colored version of the title as an image and upload it in Appearance > Header.
    c) The huge images (note the plural) below the black menu bar aren't header images, they are featured images in the slider that showcases some posts. See the theme instructions:

  3. Ok, so can someone tell me how, http://allthingsebonybrown.com, got hers to work and look like the demo?

  4. mauldwright, I gave up on Untitled. I was able to create the header as explained but continued to have problems with other aspects of this theme. Switched over to The AutoFocus theme and it was a snap to set up. I spent WAY too much time trying to make Untitled work - the purpose of my new blog is a photo journal of a trip.
