Well I screwed something up…

While editing the CSS for this blog, I changed… something… to make the header image disappear. Anyone have any idea wtf I could have changed to do this? The only change I made was editing the sidebar color. Is this something that happens when you edit CSS for the first time, or some known wordpress problem?

edit: Checking my media/images section on wordpress, it seems the old header is now gone… The file location is still there, but no image is actually showing up. So odd…

edit2: Deleting the old header (the blank), and re-uploading the image does nothing. Under appearance -> Custom Header wordpress is still showing the correct image, but on the actual blog itself its just the default blue color.

edit3: Well got the image back, but now the tagline is stuck in gray color (although I’m ok with that). Changing that one color was totally not worth it.

    I’ve noticed when I made some changes to my blog a while back that some changes to my template would dislodge the header image whether the change was to the header or not. I ended up just reloading it.

    I -think- the images get stored somewhere on your site and you may be able to just rechoose it from a list of images. I think it may be under media.

    Wow, that is odd. Glad you got it fixed though. I recall having to upload my header image a couple of times during the process of tweaking my site. Once it was finally done and saved, I stopped tinkering and said “not touching that again, ever.”

    Yea it seems that editing a theme is tricky stuff. Once I set it to ‘blank’ and did a copy/paste of the code, the site started responding. Finally got the widget border changed as well, to give everything a uniform white/black/gray theme, with blue just for link stuff.

    Try changing .description { color: #6a0c0c; } to .description { color: #FFFFFF; } to fix the tagline ;)

    Sweet got it (not that exact code, but finding the .description section is what I needed (looked like it was a header setting to me, which is why I did not change it in the first place)
