Changing Header and Background in Weaver II — 2 Comments

  1. Hi, I’m using Weaver II for a certain project right now – and I just don’t get the header right!
    I’d be very grateful for any tips: Once I uploaded the image it first showed it on all the pages but not the index site and posts. I deleted every image and uploaded it again – now the header is being shown on the “home” index page and posts – but not on the pages.

    I’ve searched the index.php, single.php and page.php for more info since I didn’t change the settings for the theme. I was hoping to find some flaws you’d just need to correct and then it would work. But no, everything seems right.

    Do you know that problem and how to solve it?

    Thank you very much in advance for any answers.
