Changing images in the header (3 posts)

    I am setting up my first web page and using WordPress. I would like to know if I can override the picture at the top of the screen and choose a different image for each page. I know I can install one image but it becomes visible on every page.

    Am I going to have a crash course in PHP?

    possibly - what theme are you using?
    (name and download link?)

    link to your site?

    some things can be done just using css (need another crach course??);
    but, very likely, yes - some basic uderstanding of php will be required ;-)

    Ok I used "Twenty Ten 1.2 by the WordPress team" and made 2 changes. I changed the 940 x 198 image and on many pages chose the page attribute template with "one column and no sidebar". Other than that, I have been busy with content.

    I now see that I can decide the size of the images. In this, I could set the size to 940 x 198 and choose a theme without a picture at the top. This way I can place a different picture at, or near, the top.

    I hope that a few ways to do this might be presented here. I do have an extensive background in programming but only scarcely looked at PHP.

    I am not sure what the consequences will be but I may have just answered my own question (-: I will look for a theme without a picture at the top and see if I can place my own image.

    Meanwhile I will continue to look for suggestions here.

    Thanks for the response.

    P.S. Adding a note after I just posted that note: I see only one other template available. Am I missing something?
