WordPress Twenty-Eleven Header Height — How to Change

June 26th, 2012 2 comments

It seems people are still having a lot of issues with the default theme height in the WordPress Twenty-Eleven and Twenty-Ten themes as evidence by the following post in the WP forums today…just one of many that seems to be a common issue for people.

http://wordpress.org/support/topic/twenty-eleven-header-height-yet-again

Whoever created the headers in those themes must be from another planet when it comes to web-design. With the new theme editing and preview feature in WordPress 3.4, I thought making it easy to reduce the header height would be an obvious area that would be addressed for improvement, but looks like I was wrong. So, for all those wanting to reduce the ridiculously large header area in Twenty-Eleven and Twenty-Ten, see my video here.

WordPress TwentyTen & TwentyEleven Theme Basic Editing for Non-Techies

December 31st, 2011 8 comments

In the video above I demonstrate how to do some basic editing on the default WordPress themes (Twentyten and Twentyeleven) to reduce the header size and remove some of the items that, in my opinion, take up way too much space in the header. In the process, I show the basics of setting up a child theme and provide a glimpse into how I use local copies of WordPress running on my computer to make theme editing a lot quicker and simpler. I also demonstrate how to preview changes in Firebug and then copy those changes into your theme css file. This tutorial is intended for non-techies…if you are an expert, then this isn’t for you. Enjoy!

WordPress Pixel Theme — Four New Colors

September 26th, 2009 No comments

I’ve edited the WordPress Pixel theme (1.9.7) a bit to change the colors. You can download the files below…I’ve only included the changed files, so you will need to download the original theme and then add files from the zip below. To make the changes, simply download and extract the zip, open the original theme and replace the footer.php, style.css, and screenshot.png files with the ones in the zip. Then copy the educhalk folder from the images folder in the zip and add it to the images folder in your theme. That’s it…refresh your browser and you should see the changes. You can preview the themes by using the theme switcher dropdown in the header of this site.

iNove 1.4.5 Theme for WordPress– How to Increase the Header Size

July 29th, 2009 19 comments

In older versions of the iNove theme, increasing the header height was difficult because the header, nav bar, and footer were all part of the same image. However, in iNove 1.4.5 the header is now a single image, so increasing the height is simple. See the following video for step-by-step directions.
