    I am also trying to upload a custom header, but it doesn’t show up. I am using the PressRow theme. I can see the picture, crop it and publish it, but it becomes blank when I go to view it.

    I see your custom header.

    @suchandrika

    Your header should not disappear anymore.

    @sdsucirculation

    I fixed your header image.

    I’m using Digg 3 Column. The header pic disappeared, plus all the items in my extra pages; only the posts on my front page were there. When I go to write to edit the page, everything is there. I click on ‘Save’ without changing anything and everthing comes back except the header.
    Thanks,
    Charles

    Please post the url for your blog so staff can locate it and help you. :)

    I would really just use the Support button on your dashboard. It goes directly to staff, and unlike MOST of the time, it’s open right now.

    Staff are faithfully monitoring these threads and are fixing blogs as they go. I see the evidence of this here before my very eyes. IMO it’s not necessary to flood staff with support requests that only occupying time with reading rather than fixing. From what I can see generating more support tickets does not lead to getting faster repair service from Barry and Joseph.

    Hey, they have asked for details to be sent to them directly in the past. I’m not aware of that changing.

    I noticed a change on the weekend.

    It depends on the problem and information required, but staff generally will chime in on important threads and tell users what they want them to do. Recent roll in of code has them asking users for details in the thread itself. It requires us to read the posts to find out what they would like.

    My header image dissappeared. I uploaded another one, which worked fine. Now I changed the CSS code slightly (adding sans-serief instead of serif) and it does not want to pick up ANY header image any more. I wond what is happening. I tried to restore the original CSS from another one of my blogs but could not. Is it possible to al least restore the original CSS? And why does this happen with the header image after changing the letter type?

    Once you change the CSS, then you have to enter the header image URL into the CSS at the appropriate place. The “upload new header image” option in the dashboard will not work once the CSS has been modified.

    Hey, and what is the sacred path ? :-)

    #145792

    You will have to go to manage uploads in your dashboard and find out the URL of the header image you want to use. Click on the image and a box will appear with the URL in the top line. Paste that URL into your custom CSS in the section that has to do with the header. I’m just starting with CSS, so I can’t tell you exactly where that is in the CSS, or what it would look like.

    Just the name of my blog, just like yours is waterlog.

    Should be somewhere in hereĀ±
    #feedarea dl dd {
    display:inline;
    margin-right:5px;
    height:45px;
    background:url(‘img/icon_feed.gif’) no-repeat left center;
    padding-left:16px;
    }

    #headerimage {
    clear:both;
    background:#fff url(‘img/misty.jpg’) no-repeat 0 0;
    color:#fff;
    height:200px;
    margin:10px;
    }

    But I can find that out today.
    Thanks!!!
