I am having trouble getting the header for my WordPress site to be responsive.

Right now, I just have it set to disappear, but I would like it to shrink with the
window size.

Please help. Thank you.

This expert suggested creating a Gigs project.
This will be depend on your installed theme, or plugin that is being used. Can you give some more details on how you are trying to accomplish this? What steps are you taking? Can you provide any screenshots?

The only thing I have done is make the header disappear. I have not used a plugin or anything like that.

I would remove the  style code that you have that makes it disappear

section.logo-box {
    margin-left: -9999px;
}

Open in new window


and change the following styles in style.css

currently it is:
section.logo-box {
    float: left;
    width: 67.25%;
    margin-top: 0.5em;
}

Open in new window


change it to:

section.logo-box {
    float: left;
    width: 100%;
    margin-top: 0.5em;
}

Open in new window



and change

#title {
    width: 1100px;
}

Open in new window


to:

#title {
    width: 100%;
}

Open in new window


then you need to redesign your header image to be at least 1100px wide as the current image is only 556px wide

you'll also have to adjust all the margins etc... in the media queries to get ride of the white space

to do this without messing with the theme,
 install a plugin called "simply custom CSS"

which is here : https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css/
then under appearance you get a "custom css"

then add the changes to the styles   in this bit.

otherwise if its a bought them you may lose your changes when you get updates.
