Please, help me add a header image to my site... (5 posts)

    I have an image I'd like to use, have uploaded it to the site, and have read numerous guides about how to add a header image but just can't get my head around how it works.

    I think the problem is that I'm using the theme PianoBlack, which looks great, but it makes the code in the header and style parts look totally unlike any of the code in the guides for adding a header image.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'd just like the image to appear in the header across all pages.

    Upload your header image to 'your theme folder/img',
    and write below code in your style.css

    #header {
    background:transparent url(img/your-header-image-filename.png) no-repeat center bottom;
    height:160px; /* your header image height */
    }

    I have it uploaded as a media file. I added that code to the style.css and put in the link to the file, but I sense I've uploaded the file to the wrong place. How do I upload to the place you suggested? Thanks for the help.

    Whoa, loads of tinkering and it worked. Had no idea I needed to go through my hosting site to upload a file, stupid individual that I am. Now just need to change the size...

    Heya guys. I just tried what was written above with no luck. I would get a transparent logo area, with normal text for my logo title. The actual logo never showed up. I put the logo file into the piano black img folder as it instructed.

    My site is: http://futureteck.net

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
