Changing Width for Benevolence Header Image

    Hello

    I’ve tried to do as discussed here and I can’t find any other similar posts:

    https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/width-for-benevolence-css?replies=14

    I’m trying to change the width of the blog, http://blog.bottomlinesafety.com/, to be 834px wide to match our corporate site, http://www.bottomlinesafety.com. But when I change the CSS as described in the above link, and even change the URL of the image in the CSS File so that I no longer am using the header auto uploader, it still refuses to size my image greater than the 700px width that is standard.

    I have been able to change all widths as needed but that image width. I’ve tried changing the file on the FTP to bypass the uploader size limitation as well but it still does not work. I end up with an unsightly black square in the upper corner of the blog where the header image should extend.

    I can change the CSS as suggested in FireBug and it looks right, but when I try to do it on the live file, it just wipes it out. I figure it must be controlled elsewhere, but where?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. (PS: this is still a work in progress but this is where I got stuck.) Thanks in advance.

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

    I have flagged this so it gets moved to the CSS Forum for you.

    Sorry! I must have got to the wrong support site somehow. I’ll try posting on the other side. This is a self-hosted wordpress.org blog. Thanks for your help.
