Redoable Lite theme - how to get an image in the header

  1. Hi guys,

    I wondered if anybody knew how to post an image in the header? I know that I just can't upload one.

    I have this text to do with header:

    #header .description {
    font-size:1em;
    margin:0 40px;
    }

    #header {
    background:#111;
    height:180px;
    width:750px;
    }

    #header_content {
    background:#900;
    border-left:10px solid #600;
    border-right:10px solid #600;
    color:#fff;
    height:180px;
    position:relative;
    margin:0 !important;
    }

    #header_middle {
    height:180px;
    margin:0 0 0 10px;
    }

    #header_content a {
    background:#262626;
    color:#FFF;
    text-decoration:none !important;
    }

    #header_content a:hover {
    background:#333;
    color:#FFF;
    text-decoration:none !important;
    }

    #header_content .current_page_item a {
    background:#333;
    }

    #header_content .current_page_item a:hover {
    background:#393939;
    }

    #header_content #title a {
    background:none;

    Which bit do I post the URL in?

    Many thanks!

  2. you don't need custom css upgrade for a customised header, see this faq:

    I use redoable lite without custom CSS and found it dead easy to upload the header photo.

    Sure would like to fix the problem of the theme having at times a wide- and at others a narrow-body text.

  4. Hmm I will have to try again as it doesn't seem to work for me. I'll have another stab at it

  5. Have you purchased the CSS upgrade already? That might be the problem you're having. Once you have the CSS upgrade, the custom headers you upload won't work; you need to paste the address of your header from Dashboard > Manage > Uploads into #header under background url.

  6. That is great, many thanks. I am just a bit confused as to what I type exactly and where to put the URL as there are lots of different references to background in the text I posted above if you see what I mean

  7. Look for the first part of this code then insert the header information below it, the complete url and filename extension

    }
    
    #content a:hover {
    	border-bottom:1px dotted #FF3C00;
    }
    
    #title_image {
    	text-align:left;
    	display:block;
    	height:95px;
    	background:url('http://yoururl.xxx') center center transparent repeat-y;
    	margin:0;
    }
  8. Great, thanks for this, as I've just experienced the same issue. brilliant stuff!! x

  9. Me too! thanks so much!
