Unable to upload larger header inspite of CSS customization

    OK, I’ve got a rather silly problem. I have customized my header image area as follows:

    #header {
    margin: 0 auto;
    min-height: 250px;
    overflow: hidden;
    width: 960px;

    .header-image #title-area,.header-image #title,.header-image #title a {
    display: block;
    float: left;
    height: 250px;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding: 0;
    text-indent: -9999px;
    width: 400px;

    Now, I want to change my header, and so I uploaded a header with the same dimensions as my original header, and I expected it to be processed just fine. Instead, I am asked to crop my header so it conforms to the theme default. I don’t understand why it does so. Shouldn’t it now accept larger images?

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)


    No, the image size is in the theme files so the header uploaded knows what to crop.

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks for getting back. Does this mean that I cannot change the header? I really just want 2-3 header options (the same size as the header I have currently). Is there no way to implement this?


    You’ll have to stick to the supplied size.

    There’s no way to change it here at WordPress.com.
