Support » Themes and Templates » Help with Personal Header

  • Hi, I’m sure this question gets asked a lot (maybe the most asked question?) but I cannot get the personal header thing right.

    Here’s what I did:

    Went into Theme Editor
    Went into Header
    Deleted the part it said to delete if you don’t want their header
    Deleted the /* around the personal header part (see below for what it now looks like)
    I entered my personalheader.jpg into my images (inside my wordpress directory)

    What else do I need to do? Did I perhaps do something wrong, is the image in the wrong directory?

    Here is what it looks like now….. I posted the whole thing just in case I needed to change something else, but the bold area is what I’m talking about. Thank you for any help I recieve, I truely appreciate it!

    God Bless,
