I’m sure this has been covered before but the support searches I’ve done and subsequent responses on this topic are unclear to me. I have three questions about the header in the newscast theme:
1. What is the default color of the header using the light skin?
2. How do I change the color of the header?
2. How do I decrease the size of the header (by about half)?
Apologies for any duplication.
the header color is controlled by the body background image. You can find the image here: images/skin1/bg.png
If you’d like to change the header color you can use Photoshop or Gimp to modify the image.
2) You can adjust the header size with following code (add it to style.css):
Decrease/Increase the value to change the header height. You’ll need to adjust the background image size of images/skin1/bg.png too.
So is the 125px the default size of the header? If I shrink the size of the header, do shrink the size of the background image to be exactly the same height as the new size of the header?
Will the size of the header not shrink until I decrease the size of the background image? I added the above code to style.css (I haven’t shrunk the background image yet) but nothing has happened.
No you need to adjust both things individually (they don’t affect each other). I.e. if you set the padding to 100px (instead of 125px) you need remove 25px from the top dark area of the background image too – otherwise the menu won’t display right.
Is there a way I can access to the image images/skin1/bg.png though wordpress I don´t have access to Filezilla (a friend of mine up load the template to the server)
Unfortunately no. You can access it and download it but you can’t upload it without a ftp client or a cpanel tool.
