header: how to install .ai, .ait or .eps file?!

  • hi – got a graphic design for my header.

    the designer sent me each an .ai-file, an .ait-file and an .eps-file.

    is one of them compatible with wordpress?

    and if yes, how to install it?

    overwriting the whole header.php?

    or adjust the stylesheet css?

    tks for feedbacks.

    Your designer sent you files for printing. Either convert the AI file (if you have Adobe Illustrator) or ask your designer for a low-res jpeg file. Make sure it is the same dimensions as the header you are replacing.

    When you have the correct file, rename the current header and then substitute your new one.

    You do not need to mess with the php or css.

    tks kmessinger. i was unclear:

    i only want to change the background.

    the title text has to remain changeable over admin.

    this is the code – how can i insert/exchange the jpg/psp-background-file?

    #header {
    background: #313032;
    width: 960px;
    height: 100px;
    margin: 0px auto 0px ;
    padding: 0px;
    overflow: hidden;
    }

    or is this the answer already?:

    Basically, that’s the answer… just don’t use on the net anything else than jpg, gif, png.

    In the theme I use, Kubrick, you replace the image wp-content\themes\default\images\kubrickheader.jpg with whatever background image you want.

    Then you go to wp-admin/index.php, Header Image and Color, Advanced and pick the colors for your title text. Click on “Toggle Text Display” to turn your text on and click on “Update Header.”

    The header text is remains changeable under the “Options” tab.

    Assuming your image is the correct size, this is more simple and direct than messing with php or css.

    “Then you go to wp-admin/index.php, Header Image and Color, Advanced and pick the colors for your title text. Click on “Toggle Text Display” to turn your text on and click on “Update Header.” …

    i dont find any of those commands on my admin (WP 2.3) …

    got it! tks all.

    kmessinger: your way did not work, had to go into the css style sheet.

    tks to all!

    Glad it is working for you. Strange how the admin is different in some cases. Must be theme driven?

    Anyway, the important thing is that it works!
