Custom Header previews fine, publishes with black box behind text?

    I checked the forums but didn’t find any topic with this issue. I’ve uploaded and cropped a photo, set it in a theme that allows a custom header (Quintus), it previews as the photo with text overlay. Published, it’s photo, with text appearing in black box on top of photo. I don’t see a “transparent” option.
    I tried deleting header and starting over, same issue? Again, in preview, it looks exactly as I’d like it. Sadly, when published, I have the black box.
    I’d love some help from the fabulous WP genies. :)

    The blog I need help with is



    What kind of file is it? Sounds to me like it might be a gif?



    Thanks raincoaster very fast response!
    It’s a .jpeg I’m uploading from an imac.


    That’s how the theme is designed – see here:

    But if you don’t like the black box, it will go away if you go to Appearance>Header and change the Text Color to anything other that pure white.

    And please link to your current blog – the one linked to your username is deleted.



    Of course, it worked instantly. I wouldn’t have thought to change the text color. Thanks for taking the time to help, and remind me to fix the link. Much appreciated!
