Working on a copy of the 2.1 default theme Curve2

How does one go about adding a header background image to the top of Curve2, in the area where the logo and slogan sit? And keep it all responsive.

Can someone post a code example please.

Thanks Les.  But isn't that just the background image with the logo and slogan on top of it? Or is that a separate image?  Maybe we are at cross purposes here.  ;)

lesmond

Not an image, just a colour gradient and its behind the logo and slogan, what I was trying to imply is, could an image be used instead?

I added this to the header section of the css and it shows a background for the header. If this is what you want:

background: #000000 url(http://www.smfhelper.com/header.png) 100% 100% no-repeat;

Is this what you meant. (see screenshot)

imho not really lol, the background and the header image are completely off

Bigguy

@lesmond That looks real good.

@SychO So you mean the background for the site should be changed. :ques

It was on the site just now when I came back. Just went to check it in responsive design mode, and it was gone again. lol..  Reason I was going to test was when I zoomed in on the page it shifted to the left.

But yes thanks guys that's the place I want to put a image.

Bigguy

Yeah it was just up there to see if that was the right spot. :)
