I’m trying to add a clickable full-screen-width header image to my site. I managed to achieve this using ‘Background images > Header’, but the image didn’t give a link back to the homepage.
I’m now trying to use a logo image, but there isn’t an option to have it full width as far as I can see. I’ve searched the Support threads and found various bits of CSS you’ve suggested to others, but none seem to work. Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Hi Dave. Not sure if this helps but I use a slider in the header area in place of the logo on a site I look after (not GP theme but theory should still work). If you use something like meta slider you can add the link. Of course if you don’t want the slider (ie; motion) then only add one image to the slider. You can also set the slider dimensions to the image you wish to use.
Quick fix, not very difficult to acheive and gets the result you may be looking for.November 20, 2015 at 12:31 pm #154465TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperNovember 21, 2015 at 4:49 am #154587Dave Walker
Thank you – I’d rather do things through the Generatepress admin if possible, but I’ll keep this in mind.

That’s fine Dave fully understood. Just something I have used I thought might come in handy for you or somebody else. 🙂November 23, 2015 at 11:57 am #155016Dave Walker
I haven’t been able to make this work unfortunately – I’m not sure why. The header still isn’t full width.
I’ve tried to post a link here on the forum, but my replies aren’t showing up…

You may want to load the Child Theme along with the regular GeneratePress Theme making the Child your active theme.
Once you do, you can drop that code Tom sent you right inside the CSS page for the Child Theme and it will take care of your problem.
I started using the child theme a few months ago and it’s made life a whole lot simplier
Hope this helps.November 23, 2015 at 1:19 pm #155064TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Alternatively, you can use our new CSS plugin: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/simple-css
Can you confirm that it’s not working even with the CSS added?November 23, 2015 at 1:49 pm #155067Dave Walker
Tom – all working now, thank you. No idea why it didn’t before – maybe I absentmindedly copied the code wrongly or something.
Kenneth – thank you.November 23, 2015 at 1:49 pm #155072TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperNovember 23, 2015 at 2:01 pm #155073Dave Walker
That’s kind of you, but I did reload the cache several times. Suspecting user error this end… 🙂
