So I am using the CSS editor and am trying to upload a jpg to use as the banner. The image is large, 690px X 470, and I know from a design standpoint that is too big, but the woman I am working for doesn't care and wants this image only. I have used this code to reside the header format:
background:transparent url('http://path/to/new/image.jpg') no-repeat scroll center top;
height: 470px !important;
width: 690px !important;
I have inserted it into the CSS editor box, but when I preview the page, the header is plain white. Also, when I try to upload a new header, it still wants to crop is at 180px tall.
Have I inserted the code incorrectly? Do I need to upload the entire Vigilance stylesheet into the CSS code box?
This is obviously my first try at using the WordPress interface, so I'm feeling pretty n00b-y.
I am using Vigilance theme through wordpress.com
Thanks, and sorry.
The blog I need help with is theprincessandthepeasdotcom.wordpress.com.
