    this should do it….

    Abs thanks. For some reason the header comes up white and blank now. I am so lost with this code.

    you are in the css file right?

    No, abs, read carefully the OP. It is the default theme which has ALL the bg images style in the header.php. Please, don’t give misleading advice.

    oops, i didnt read that part….

    section 30, can you download the image and place it in the images folder and then in the original code replace kubrickheader.jpg with your file name…

    is there a different way to write for the header.php file?
    I really appreciate any advice

    Abs, that worked great. One more question (sorry). The default text is still on the header above my image. I have looked into the header php file and the css and can’t find the source of this text. Any ideas of where it may be?
    Here is a link to my site so

    Thank you

    i dont see any text… i just see a black header…

    Ok, do you see it now?

    delete this part :

    <div id="headerimg">
    <h1><a href="<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>
    <div class="description"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div>

    I deleted that code form the “header” page. For some reason it still looks the same?

    Urgh. Kubrick gives me hives.

    In your theme’s header.php, you probably have a block of code towards the bottom that looks like:
    <h1><a href="<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>
    <div class="description"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div>

    Delete it and your current problem goes away.

    But that introduces a new problem Typically, clicking on a blog’s title is a quick link to the main page. You could work around that a bit by getting rid of that inline #headerimage style so that your image isn’t a background image and can be linked.

    Darn, for some reason I dont have any code like that built into the header.php.
    Is there a really simple template to edit that you guys would suggest?
    Thank youy again!

    Open up the theme’s header.php and search for bloginfo('name') It has to be in there somewhere as you’re still displaying it on your blog!

    As for alternative themes, wander around and see if you find something you like.

    Heres another dumb question. Once I download the template i want how to I apply it to my blog? Meaning, how do I import it?
