Change text displayed in header: page title or author name instead of site title (2 posts)

    I'm wondering how I can modify the code so that different text will be displayed over the header instead of the site title. Specifically, I would like it to display the title of each page for normal pages, and the author for pages that show all posts by a particular author.

    Is there a plugin that I can install which enables this, or do I need to modify the code myself? The Dynamic Headers plugin appears to be only for changing the background image in the header, which is not what I want to do. I want the same image for every page, but different text superimposed on top of it for each page.

    Thanks for any suggestions or help that anyone can provide.

    I've been able to get it to display the title of each page superimposed over the header masthead image, but I need it to only do that for blog post pages and for some specific static pages. For some other static pages, I need it to display the site title. For an author archive page, it needs to display the name of the author.

    Also, if a page has a parent page, I want it to display not only the page title but also the parent page title, like this: "Parent Title > Current Page Title"

    How can I specify each of these things in header.php using if statements?
