Custom Header for the Vigilance Theme (7 posts)

    Please forgive the question from a total noob here. I've tried searching the forums here for an answer, but I can't seem to find anything that'll work. I'm using the Jestro Vigilance theme on my blog, and I want to add a custom header. The only option I see in the theme is one to add a custom banner, but all that does is change the image that sits under the header and the navigation bar and I'm not interested in that (or having an image there.) Do I need to get into the header.php and mess around in there? If so, what am I supposed to put there? Thanks everybody.

    a link to your site woulkd help, but it's most likely controlled in your style.css file.

    I can't tell you where to look exactly, but you'll see the image linked in there, change that link to a new image you upload into the themes image directory - or - make a new image that is the same size as the one being used for your header (look for the image in your themes image folder), name the image with the same name as the old one, and delete the old image in your theme, replace it wit the new one, and that will work too.

    Here's my site:


    I have no banner right now, just the name of my site.

    That theme isn't built to use an image in the header area and the layout of the top part of the page would need a fair bit of editing before it could take a 100px high image.

    Yeah that's what I figured, but I heard about the theme from someone who used and created a custom header for their site:


    That's pretty much what I'd like mine to look like, but I can't figure out how to create what she has on my site.

    I was able to add an image as a header on my home page, but for some reason unknown to me, the image does not appear for the other pages.

    I added the following code within the header.php file:

    <img src="wp-content/images/portfolio banner3.jpg" align="right" border="0" />

    I put this just below the "<div id="wrapper">"

    Can someone help me get this image to show up on each of my pages?
    My website is http://www.andrewmunro.ca/portfolio

    You need to edit the "single.php" file as well since it is what is used for single posts.
