Disabling Header Image for Mobile Devices


Overall, I am very happy with Sydney Pro. I am having difficulty with the mobile version, though. My header image is not resizing with any semblance to its original dimensions, and I’d like to either:

  1. Disable it all together; OR

  2. Adjust the image so that it is better responsive for iPhones

My website is http://kristismithyoga.com/

Either solution would make me happy, although I can’t figure out how to do either. For (1) there is the caveat that if I were to do this, I would want to replace the header image with my logo (which is white text on a transparent background), but I do not want to change my colors on the desktop version of the site.

Can you please help me to find solutions to (1) and/or (2)? Thank you very much!


Background images set to cover don’t behave like regular images. Try adding this in a custom CSS plugin and let me know please:

@media (max-width: 460px) {
  .header-image {
    height: 150px;
    background-position: top;

Would also help if your image is just a little bigger in height.

Thanks for the code, Vlad. I tried it and it definitely helped, although I’m still not seeing nearly enough image, and I don’t want to increase the height because it will be too big on PCs…is there any code that would allow me to use a different image (eg, I have a square png logo image I could use instead, but I don’t want it to show up on the main website).


You could increase the height propriety in the code I gave you.
Also, you could give a try to the bundled Revolution Slider plugin. It might be better suited in your case as it works differently from the header image.

You can’t have a different image on small screens, sorry.
We could implement it but that would require a lot of checks and extra code and I’m not sure it’s worth the extra load on the theme, especially as most people are using Revolution Slider anyway.

Thanks, Vlad. I may try the slider again.

Hi Vlad,

Glad I found this thread - you mention that it isn’t possible to upload a separate header image only for mobile - that’s what I’ve been trying to do for the last few days! Haha - now I can stop searching! –
Alternatively, is there a way to resize the current header? As - at the moment - the text on the header is too small to read on a mobile device.
My site is www.balance-golf.com

Any advice is much appreciated!!

Thank you
