Add a Round Logo to the Pretty Creative Theme by Pretty Darn Cute
The Pretty Creative by Pretty Darn Cute Design displays a header image at 300px by 100px, which is the perfect size for viewing on multiple mobile devices.
I was recently asked by a client to replace the default header image with a round logo.
In order to do this, we will first need to adjust the custom header size in our functions.php file, and then make adjustments to our CSS.
The Pretty Creative header is loaded at 1200px by 400px; this allows for a beautifully crisp image when viewing on a device with a retina screen, such as a MacBook Pro, and the latest iPhones.
If you have access to make adjustments to your PHP files via your WordPress dashboard, navigate to Dashboard > Appearance > Editor > functions.php. Look for this:
Adjust this size to accommodate the image that you wish to display. The logo I was given was 1000px by 1000px, so I adjusted the functions.php file as follows:
The client wanted her round logo to display at 250px high, so once I had updated the functions.php file, it was time to make an adjustment to my stylesheet. Look for this:
Once you have made that adjustment, you’ll need to update your stylesheet. Look for this:
Update the height in this section to accommodate your round logo:
Here’s how the logo displays on my test site:
If you don’t have access to your WordPress dashboard (some hosting companies disable this functionality), you will need to access your front-page.php via cPanel or FTP to make the update.
As a reminder: Any time you are making adjustments to a PHP file, you will want to have a fresh file available to upload to your site via cPanel or FTP – a misstep when updating your functions.php file will result in crashing your site; if you do that, you will need to upload a new functions.php file via cPanel or FTP (it cannot be fixed via your WordPress dashboard.
