How to put a custom header in the Cargo theme

lemaquillage:

A lot of people asked how did i put a custom header in my page. I’m using the Cargo theme and here’s how you do it.

Click in Advanced and add this code to your custom CSS. In the background image url, add the address of where your header image is hosted.

Then, change the 180px according to your header height. 

/* custom colours */

body{ background-image: url(INSERT THE URL OF YOUR HEADER HERE.jpg);

background-repeat: no-repeat;

padding-top: 500px;}

#main_column{

position:absolute;

top:180px;

}

.regular img { max-width: 100%; }

That’s it! Play around with the px numbers to see if you got it right. 

Update.

I just submitted a new version that includes:

  • photoset posts
  • pages support
  • ability to hide ‘about’ & ‘following’ from the nav
  • & an IE fix (which I still need to test)

Should be out soon.

The theme update is out.
Once you’ve setup a disqus site, add your sites shortname under the ‘Appearance’ tab in customize.

Change your default view to list view.

  1. Goto customize
  2. Click on ‘Theme’
  3. Click on ‘Use Custom HTML’ near the bottom of the theme window
  4. Change default_format = “grid” to default_format = “list” (about 16 lines down)
  5. Click ‘Save + Close’
  6. Do a little dance.

Please note that whenever you switch between grid and list on your (public) tumblr page, it stores a cookie so it’s like that next time you visit. Because of this you may still see it in grid format. Any new visitors will see you site in list format though.

Now in the theme garden.
I’d love to see it out in the wild so if you use it could you send an email to jarred.bishop+cargo@gmail.com with a link? I’ll feature a few here.
