    Hi!

    I’m using Delith theme and I have a question regarding the header image. As far as I understood, you can upload an image up to 1800×400. I’ve done it, but the maximum height I see is around 200px. Is it possible to have the full 1800×400 view?

    The blog is http://decofeelings.wordpress.com/

    Thanks,
    Richar

    PS: very nice theme, congrats!

    The blog I need help with is decofeelings.wordpress.com.

    Sure, you can add a little CSS:

    #masthead {
      min-height: 400px;
    }

    You may find that 400px is actually too high though, adjust 400 as you see fit.

    You’ll need this upgrade in order to add custom CSS:

    Thanks, bhadaway!

    Another question: I upload a 1800×400 px header and in the preview I see it correctly:

    But when I activate it and see it in the blog, it gets distorted,like it was stretched:

    How could I set up the original 1800×400 header so that is correctly view and not stretched?

    Thanks,

    Since the theme is not fixed-width (it’s responsive) and screen sizes vary drastically, it really cannot be controlled in that way.

    You could do something like:

    #masthead {
      margin: 0 auto;
      max-width: 1150px;
    }

    And make the header image 1150×200 pixels, but this likely won’t be a desirable effect.

    Thanks
