    I have two questions 1) How do I remove the “leave a message” box from all of my pages and 2)How do I change the size of the actual header (instead of my picture). The default size is 940 by 150, but I need the height to be larger (maybe 200). I purchased the CSS so I could make changes but am not sure how to proceed. My site is developingsolutionsllc.com

    Your help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is developingsolutionsllc.com.

    We cannot edit templates or themes on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/ Our blogs are all on the same wpMU multiuser blogging platforum and every blog using the same theme is using the same underlying template. Only Staff can access and edit those files as every edit they make effects every blog wearing the same themes.

    Purchasing a custom design upgrade http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/ allows us to change only appearance by CSS editing. http://en.support.wordpress.com/editing-css/ CSS editing cannot be used to change the way any theme functions. CSS editing is also theme specific. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

    1) How do I remove the “leave a message” box from all of my pages

    CSS editing is not required to enable or disable comments on any post or page. This page > Settings > Discussion
    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.
    We can also override the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any post or page.

    However, depending on the theme we use when we close comments a phrase like “comments closed” or a similar phrase may appear and if so, it can only be removed by CSS editing after purchasing a custom design upgrade.

    I’m flagging this thread so it will be moved to the CSS Forum where you can get answers to your other questions.

    You can do that by overriding the built in theme header with your own. First, you should upload your header image with the final dimensions you want to your media library.

    Use this CSS and replace the image inside url() with a direct link to the image you uploaded to your media library.

    #header-image a img {
    display: none;
    }
    
    #header-image a {
    display: inline-block;
    background: url(http://developingsolutionsllc.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/cropped-dsca-logo8.jpg) no-repeat center center;
    width: 940px;
    height: 200px;
    }
