    Is there any way to make the Header Ad widget be able to support an image 486×120 instead of 486×60?

    • Jason Huber says:

      In the style.css for the theme change #headerad to 120px:

      #headerad {
      height: 60px;
      }

      You make need to adjust the #headerright padding top height also:

      #headerright {
      width: 488px;
      float: right;
      margin: 0px;
      padding: 20px 0px 0px 0px;
      overflow: hidden;
      }

      thanks,
      Jason

    Hi Jason,

    Love your theme and definitely plan on contributing if any of my sites are ever profitable.

    All the sites I use Simply Works for stopped being able to be tracked by Google Analytics after I updated.

    Or is it just me?

    Thanks again for the great theme and any help you can give me.

    Matt

    This is such a great theme.
    I am getting a small issue and cannot see any ‘pages’ in the header bar.
    Any ideas what that might be?
    I tried a clean WP install to eliminate plugins.
    Just checked against your screenshots and I don’t have a header bar.
    Thanks.
