    Upload a header image called header.jpg (max: 123px high) to the images folder within your current theme’s folder. Then edit your theme’s style.css file and try changing:

    #header {
    height:123px;
    }

    to

    #header {
    height:123px;
    background:url(images/header.jpg) left top no-repeat;
    }

    Thank you – I did this but no change – still the same default heading. Do I need to also edit the header.php file? what should the code say?

    No – you don’t need to edit any other code. You just need to upload the header image to the correct folder.

    the folder i uploaded to was wp-content/themes/oriental/images – isn’t that the correct folder?

    Right folder but perhaps you mis-named the image?

    Sorry? You’ve lost me. Is your image on your site’s server somewhere? Can you view it in your web browser via your domain?

    I have changed the size to 123 px by 123 px. (It is square) I have saved it under my wp-content folder which is where everything related to wordpress and my site have been saved. they are just housed on my hard drive under “downloads” because all downloads first go to this location and i never copied it to go anywhere else. (is this not my site’s server?)

    I cannot view the image in my web browser – before it had a ?, now it just looks exactly the same (title default from theme).

    Thanks again – I don’t know why I am having so much trouble.

    wait, do you mean to upload the image to my wordpress dashboard library of images? i’ve just been saving it on my hard drive but in the wp-content/themes/oriental/images folder –

    no i am pretty sure the theme files are kept on my local hard drive under wp-content/themes/oriental/images/header.jpg

    this is exactly where it is and it’s not working – is it possible this theme won’t allow it? i’m very frustrated.

    No! You can’t keep the image on the hard drive of your computer and then expect the rest of the world to be able to see it!

    The image must be uploaded to your web server’s wp-content/themes/oriental/images folder using FTP to whatever file manager is available via your hosting provider.

    OK! thanks – that must be the problem – I am confused about where files are kept. I will check it out with my hosting provider. Thanks!

    THANKS esmi, this worked – I am a dope, did not realize I had to upload files to the FTP server as WP has been doing this automatically with my content and themes so far.

    Any general info. or resources on how to move the header.jpg or the default text that is next to it so it is laid out as desired?

    Right now when I upload that header image it is too far to the left and the name/description default heading is overlapping it. thanks again, TPM

    hi is anyone there, I need help. Similar topic, my site is http://www.mynursingedu.com and I want to shrink the header so that people can view my page, as well as put another script or picture in the header area.
    Thanks,
    nan
