HI All

I am having difficulty loading a header image fot full width of content. A number of Genesis Child themes appear to limit the image size to 300px wide with some being 60px 65px, 70px and I think I saw one 80px high. I gave an image my client wants to use that is 960px x 210px.

I am only just setting up the layout for the site which is

Is there a lesson somewhere that covers how to do this?

I have also installed the responsive header plugin and have uploaded different versions of the header, set them in the plugin, but they do not appear to be working. What am I doing wrong.

Help/advice would be appreciated. The child theme is Agency Pro.

Geoff - I'm sorry about the delay in responding to this.  I was travelling for a couple of days and then struggling to catch up.

You can set the header image size by either hacking the functions.php file so it shows the code below or by using my child theme customizer plugin and adding it to byob_custom_funtions.php

//* Add support for custom header
add_theme_support('custom-header', array(
 'header-selector' => '.site-title a',
 'header-text' => false,
 'height' => 210,
 'width' => 960,
