In the members-only forum a user asks:
I have a client that wants to essentially make a “text” header, meaning the header would be a solid background with 3 large words as the header. Originally they created a png for the header but this isn’t really responsive since it “shrinks” too much. I created a 3-widget area above the header with 1 word in each. Cleaned it up with CSS and then “display:none;” on the header. This seems very “patchy” as far as I am concerned.
What I want is to be able to “widgetize” the header area itself so I can put the widgets in the header itself.
I am sure that it is possible to do this but I am wondering if it is practical?
the only thing I have at this time is an image of the page. I have uploaded it to a test site of mine:
The client wants to create an image to put in the header ( “Night at the Auction” ) but as you know it will just get squished in a smart phone. Since it is all text I was going to create a 3-widget area and put “Night” in one,”at the” in another, and “Auction” in the last. This way it will “fold” for smaller form factors.
In this article we shall

- remove site description
- replace Header Site Title with
headerwidget area output
- enter our desired text in a text widget in this widget area and style it
