custom header missing (mistylook theme)

  1. The header on my blog, went missing yesterday. Now, there's just a blank white space there.

    When I go to appearance > themes > headers I see my header image is displayed. I tried restoring the original header but that doesn't show up on the site, either.

    I can think of no reason on my end for this to be happening. I haven't touched the CSS and have loaded no new widgets recently.

    Can anyone help?

  2. The header image on your blog is referring to this image.

    Do you own this blog? Check for the file.

  3. I am having the same issues with mine that just started yesterday as well. I haven't touched the css or altered anything.

  4. I believe it's possible that Staff are changing the server locations where images are stored. I don't know that for a fact - it's a wild guess. Have you considered contacting Staff?

  5. I am having the same issue. I uploaded a new header last night - and it didn't pop in, nor does it show this morning.

    How can anyone help you without knowing what the URL for the blog you are having trouble with is? Please posit it starting with http://

  7. Ah - sorry, first time I've posted in these forums. Apologies.


  8. No problem. If you wish you can link your username to your blog. It's very easy to do. Dashboard > Users > Your Profile. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ and fill in the address of your blog and then click ‘Update Profile‘.

    My header is also missing on my blog.

    I can't see it either and I'm using Firefox 3.6. Your blog needs Staff intervention. Please contact Staff using this link

  11. @mountainhomestore: The file you have tried to upload is an odt. Your header image needs to be a jpg or a png or a gif (and it needs to be sized to the exact dimensions specified by the theme).

    The header that is usually there and is missing is the header that comes with that theme. It is not a header that I uploaded. It is the MistyLook by Sadish which is from WordPress.

    @timethief....I sent a note to Support. Thanks!

  14. If you have deleted the header image from your Mdeia Library then it cannot be displayed. Please look in your Media Library and see if the header image is there or not and then post again. If it's there then please provide the URL when you post again.
    Dashboard > Media > Library

  15. @mountainhomestore: If you hadn't tried to upload a header image, the source code of the page would have this:

    #headerimage {
    background: url('') no-repeat;

    Yours had this instead:

    #headerimage {
    background: url('” is not an image.') no-repeat;

    I don't know what "antiques" is - hope you do.

    To return to the default look of the theme, go to Appearance>Header and click "Restore Original Header".

    Thanks panaghiotisadam....I did what you suggested. It worked but for the life of me I don't know why the header wasn't there. The post dated 3/05/ was there and when I went to post on 3/27/ was gone.

    Thanks for all your help and to timethief.

  17. You're welcome!

    What I see on your blog now is the default header for MistyLook. I assume you do want your own unique custom image header. If that's the case you will have to create another one, and as Panos pointed out above, the file extension for that custom image header must be one of these file types and no other > jpg or a png or a gif (and it needs to be sized to the exact dimensions specified by the theme prior to uploading it.

    That is the header I want at this time and have had for quite a while. Have had favorable comments on it.

    Thanks again and hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!

  20. That's good to know. It means this issue is resolved.
    Happy blogging :)
