This Namespace has been archived - Please Do Not Edit or Create Pages in this namespace. Pages contain information for a Joomla! version which is no longer supported. It exists only as a historical reference, will not be improved and its content may be incomplete.

The original JA Purity template was provided from JoomlArt.com as a zip but the latest files have been installed along with Joomla. The relevant files, template.css, can be found in templates/ja_purity. If you've been following the tutorial, you can download a tutorial version of the template that installs to the templates/my_japurity folder. Inside the folder of the template, the files are located as follows:

    <location of template>/
        css/
            template.css

This article will help you alter the height of the header.

You can edit the CSS file directly in your choice of plain text editors such as VI or Notepad or you can use the CSS Editor provided in the Joomla Administration area.

  1. To use the Joomla editor just log into the Administration area of your site
  2. Open the Template Manager

  3. Click on your version of the JA purity template or Click the Edit button
    tumb
  4. Click the Edit CSS icon in the upper right
    JA Purity Tutorial EditCssButton.png
  5. Click the template.css radio button
    JA Purity Tutorial TemplateCss.jpg
  6. Click the Edit button to begin editing template.css
  7. Near line 921 you will find:
    /* HEADER
    --------------------------------------------------------- */
    #ja-headerwrap {
    background: #333333;
    color: #CCCCCC;
    line-height: normal;
    height: 80px; <---- EDIT THIS
    }
    #ja-header {
    position: relative;
    height: 80px; <---- EDIT THIS
    }
    .ja-headermask {
    width: 602px;
    display: block;
    background: url(../images/header-mask.png) no-repeat top right;
    height: 80px; <---- EDIT THIS
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    right: -1px;
    }
  8. Change all of the above values to the same value of the desired height of the header.
  9. Finished

Now that you've changed the size of the header you probably want to update the header pictures and the logo to match the new size.

If you prefer to keep the current size of your logo you may want to change its position.
