Trying to add image to header in Whitehouse theme

Recommended Posts

Hello, I put together a collage of cartoons to add to my header of WP Whitehouse theme.


It does say custom-header - in fact, it says a lot of custom things -- but I can't get anything to work. I assume it's a pay thing. However, since the theme is so old now, can't you give us guys a break?


It's classically handsome, and I would really like to use it, and have already adapted some things. How to switch out the blank header that just has text and add an image? The image, collage.jpg, is already in my images file.


I've tried: adding #header{background:url(imageurl) 0 0 no-repeat;} and the like to stylesheet with no success.


All advice welcome. http://donnabarstow.com/

Hi there, you can add an image using css. Once you've uploaded to the media gallery add the image using the following css which will give an effect like http://screencast.com/t/oeqKtIBtqcwI


#header .content {
    background: url("your image url goes here");

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      site with calendar :
      7 side with one event from the calendar :
      when I have my site on DMS2 it was working :-(

      Hey team,
      Really simple question: where would I add code to a specific page header? I can see in the settings I can add code to the global header, but can't see how to do it for a single specific page. It's related to facebook pixel tracking

      Client just called today and reported a picture on her home page that I replaced 4 days ago is no longer on the page. Looking further, I see that the templates I had setup are all missing now and just the default Whitehouse templates exist. What happened to the special ones I had created? All was well 4 days ago. Neither I nor client did anything to the site. Is it possible that an update to the DMS caused the templates to disappear?
      Would really appreciate some insights and how to recover as I don't want to have to start from scratch again with layout. I had a couple RevSliders in place and it would be a major pain to have to recreate all that was there!!!
      I do have a backup, via Backupbuddy from 3 weeks and may try to restore from that.
