Hello, I'm a new customer and am working on migrating from vBulletin to Xenforo. I've used VB for over 10 years, so all this new responsive design is a mystery and a wonder to me! I'd also like to say that I spent a long time choosing which theme to make the switch to, and your designs and support over on the official forums stood out. I'm very happy to be here! :)

My question is regarding the best solution for having a banner across the top of the page, in the header section, which is the same width as the website (in my case, 1190px). If I simply add this banner to the "Header Logo Image Path", then when the browser window is reduced in size the logo shrinks to fit, but the header height doesn't adapt with it, leaving blank spaces at the top and bottom of the header section.

Alternatively, if I add the banner image as a background image to the header section itself, it spreads across 100% width of the page and not just within the max-width I've set for the forums. This solution would also cause problems when the responsive design switches to a mobile logo, as now the background banner image makes no sense.

What is the best way to achieve an 1190px image in the header that will scale well with responsive design?

If I've been unclear, I can post screenshots to show the problem.

(Also, unrelated, any quick feedback on the best alternative to vBAdvanced? Most of the solutions I've seen so far only seem to work for a single home page, and not several different non-forum related pages)

Edit to say: I'm using Core Dark.
 
Here is a screenshot. The top blue bar is 100%, the same as on the smaller version, whereas the second blue line and everything below has a small gap either side :)

Perfect! Works perfectly in all 3 sizes.

Thanks SO much - you've been really great. Once we go live with our switch to Xenforo we'll be purchasing your Teamspeak addon too, and I'm sure some other themes. Hopefully I'll be less bother for those! :D

Have a great evening :)
