I have searched and searched and read and read and I have given up and resorted to annoying you good people with a question.
All I'm trying to do is get my own jpg into the header. Should be simple and everyone else seems to have managed it so why can't I? No, dont' answer that :)
Here's a link to a blog I am trying to set up for my husband
I made the graphic to be 740x192px and uploaded it to the image folder in the default theme folder. I tried renaming the header jpg in the style sheet but it vanished altogether (I've tried so many things I've for gotten what the problem was with some of them) so I then renamed the original header kubrickheader2.jpg and renamed my header kubrickheader.jpg and the result is what you see at the link above.
I did manage to get my jpg in to some other themes that I installed but then I got some error messages with the blogroll. I have gone through 29 pages of themes via the theme editor and on dialup and it's wearing thin trying to find one that works with me.
This is what I get with the solitude or f500 themes (which I thought I could alter to suit once I got the jpg in)
WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1]
SELECT cat_id, cat_name FROM
It appears on the top right hand side bar where I think the blog roll would normally be.
Sorry if this in not very easy to follow but it's difficult for me to explain it all when I'm so new to blogs and am not sure how it should be to start with.
