My Header Won't Upload, What's Wrong?
First make sure...
If you are receiving a header upload error..
- The file is 960x150 pixels in size
- The extension ends in .jpg, .gif, .png
- There are no numbers, spaces or punctuation in filename
Goto Settings > Miscellaneous (or Settings > Media in 3.0)
and save the upload path as
If that doesn't work chmod the permissions on the header-images and sub directories via FTP to 777. Change back to 755 permissions if fixed.
Search forum for more solutions if this doesn't solve.
That didn't make much sense to me since I am using one of the stock headers.
When I select it, no problem, then I click save and it goes away every time.
I am seeing this error message just above the header images to choose:
Warning: opendir(../wp-content/themes/socrates/header-images/uploads) [function.opendir]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /home/samuel/public_html/hawaiisolarcompany.com/resources/wp-content/themes/socrates/socrates/functions.php on line 2065
Please help, thanks.

Reason: needed to add error message
You've got a double directory problem, which means you unzipped it to a 2nd directory and uploaded..
Look at your directory path.
Via FTP move all the files from socrates/socrates/ to just /socrates
That will fix.
Can't Upload Custom Header
Lovin' this theme, but having trouble here and there.
I watched the tutorial & followed the steps to upload a custom header from my logo software. It's the right size, a jpg file & I removed the spaces & punctuation from the name. When I press "Upload" the file seems to be uploading & I get a message saying the change has been made. But instead of my custom image in the Uploads section, I keep getting images from the Socrates library. I've tried over and over and over. Same result. No error messages, though.
I'm a web neophyt & don't know how to do any technical troubleshooting. Please help!!
The site is under development & set to private right now but the address is www.TLFiggs.com/wordpress
It is very strange. I see an image of a bible passage in the header when I look at your site. But if I look at the source to the page I don't see where that image is called out.
With Filezilla it is drag and drop. Select the lower socrates folder and drag it up a level.
Do I delete the secondary one after I drag it up? I noticed that there is also one for MACOSX, should I do the same for that? Thank you!
Once you drag the lower Socrates folder up into the themes folder it should merge the two. This is fine since the upper one only contains the lower one. Not sure what the MACOSX folder is. Might be another theme.
The MacOSX folder might have been placed in there on an old version... blame Jon... he sends me updates that he zipped in Mac... so I might have missed one in an older update.
