    I am wondering if I can put my logo on the side of each post…like right before the title? Also, I did the header the size that it recommends and it’s not showing all of it. I’m confused

    The blog I need help with is rachellechaseblog.wordpress.com.

    Hi there, the recommended header size in Illustratr is 1100 × 250px, but your image is 2560 x 640px.

    I see quite a few theme switches over the last day or so, so I’m not sure which theme was showing a discrepancy – could you confirm?

    I’ll have a look at your other question separately.

    It would certainly be possible to do this with some custom CSS.

    The first thing to do is to resize your image in a graphics program to the size that you want it to appear at, next to your post titles. When that’s ready, post over in the CSS Customization forum and provide a link to the small version of your logo, and the folks over there will help you out with the necessary code.

    thank you. I originally chose the gateway theme and used the suggested header size of 2560 × 640 pixels. It only showed part of the header. I just went back to gateway because that’s the one I really wanted, I just thought maybe another theme would allow me to have the header looking the way i wanted.

    Ah, I think I see what’s going on. The reason Gateway recommends a tall header like that is so that you can add a logo and a call to action – or other text – in it, like you see on the demo:

    A few ideas:

    – You might want to pull out the words in your header and put them on a transparent logo image that you overlay (as a site logo) over your custom header. That way, the words won’t be cut off at small sizes.

    – If you want a tall header like you see on the demo, you’ll need to set your front page to a static page (instead of your latest posts) and apply the Homepage template, as explained in the setup guide. After doing that, you can go into the Customizer’s Theme Options > Front Page area, and add a call to action or other info.
