How can I make this image responsive?


I am trying to include a logo for my site. It needs to be responsive. With the following CSS the image is OK with width, but the top & bottom of the logo are not displayed. If the site was not responsive, I would just put height: 100px; underneath the width. How can I make all the logo display, including the top and bottom bits of it, but still make the logo responsive?

.header-image .site-title > a { background: url(images/logo.png) no-repeat left; float: left; width: 100%; }

The rest of the CSS which my be making the top & bottom parts of the logo to not be displayed, is below.

.title-area { float: left; padding: 10px 0; width: 360px; } .header-full-width .title-area { width: 100%; } .site-title { font-size: 32px; font-weight: 400; line-height: 1.2; } .site-title a, .site-title a:hover { color: #333; } .header-image .site-title > a { background: url(images/logo.png) no-repeat left; float: left; width: 100%; } .site-description { font-size: 16px; font-weight: 300; line-height: 1.5; } .site-description, .site-title { margin-bottom: 0; height: auto; /*added by me */ } .header-image .site-description, .header-image .site-title { display: block; text-indent: -9999px; }

I suspect that it is something to do with a container?


using a fixed height for an element doesn't automatically make a site "not responsive," but you might consider using min-height: 100px; (or whatever the correct height is) to ensure that important elements of the logo won't be hidden. Depending on what exactly the desired behavior is, you could also (or instead) set a relative height (e.g. height: 100%;)

Another possible approach is to use either the cover or contain keyword value for <a href="https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/background-size" rel="nofollow">the background-size property</a>
