Changing background color/backgound image has no effect

Permalink
Brand new C5 user here. We're using version 5.6

I'm just trying to change the background color of the Sitewide Site Name, or put a background image on the Sitewide site name. I think I know how to do it, but my changes never appear. I've attached a video screen grab so you can see what I'm doing, which must be the wrong thing.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Clear your cache. From dashboard>System & settings > Optimization > Clear cache.
Then check.

Go to
Dashboard > Pages & Themes > Themes > Activated theme Customize button
in Customize Theme set header background and click on save. You can see the changes.

Hey, thanks. Well it is partial success I can set the background color of the header from that configuration section, but I can't specify a background image from there. There isn't even an option to set an image at all.

No change. Hmm.

I did add a new Content Block under 'Main', and was able to add a background image to that (see attached).

When I am in Design mode of the Site name block, this message is displayed at the bottom:
"Note: Styles set here are often overridden by those defined within the various block types. "

OK, but what type is the Site name block? I can't tell (C5 doesn't seem to have a 'Tell me what kind of block this is' function), but maybe my changes are just being overridden?

Yes i too noticed the problem. This is because the <div id="header">
in your site root/concrete/themes/greek_yogurt/elements/header.php in line no 27. Just replace that with <div id="">. Now you can change background color and image from edit mode design as you were doing(in your attaced video) it and see the changes.

Yes, removing 'header' allowed me to have an image there. Thank you!
