I have a rotating banner plugin (GoldPress’s) that I want to use in the header. I’ve tried doing it as a widget and plugging the shortcode in directly to the template. However, the best I can get is the banner to show up only 550px wide (using the widget-in-header method) ignoring any other specifications I make in the plugin set-up or the CSS for GP-child or GP (I know, not supposed to do that but after seven hours hacking at it…)
Am I doing something completely stupid? If so, what do I need to do to fix it? I’m not a complete novice when it comes to WP theme hacking so I have checked the functions.php, the styles.css, the header.php, and rounded up the rest of the usual suspects trying to figure out why that the logo shows up correctly if done using GeneratePress’s customizer but gets borked if I try to use the rotating banner plugin in the *exact same space* (as demo’d).
