  • johnborsch,

    I am so in awe of A) nice people like you and B) brilliant people like you.
    I wish so much I knew these things…..

    I do have one quick question right now about the header on my page

    I want to replace it with a new one. I have it already designed. I just don’t know where to go to put the new graphic, to switch it.

    I feel like I did this once before about 3 years ago, and thought I had to do it over at GoDaddy or wherever I got the domain name, or hosted it. But I can’t remember where, how….. and this seems such a simple, basic thing I am a total idiot.

    I’d like to do some other freshen-ups with this site too, but not as urgently as changing the simple header.

  • The current header is here:

    Simply rename that file and add your own packers_header.png file that is 960x100px.

    Now, how do I rename that, and then add the new header?
    This, I seem to remember, was done over at GoDaddy…… but I host this thing somewhere else now, so maybe it was there. I’ve tried to look there for these things this week, and can’t find. I’m unsmart with these things, very much so. Why didn’t I write this down when I changed it a few years ago?

    You can use ftp or a File Manager from your hosting service, in cPanel if available.

    I found the FTP File Manager for this!
    It is in GoDaddy.

    But in there, to my idiot eyes, this is like looking at ancient Chinese hyroglyphics, in Arabic or Latin.

    I thought under IMAGES, I might find it and change it’s name.
    Then upload the new one with the previous .png name.

    But I can’t locate this header thing.
    Ideally, I also want to change the ugly background too….

    Should I watch a tutorial on youtube for this stuff?
    It’s probably piece of cake for you guys, but impossible for me.


    The packers_header.png is located here: wp-content/themes/church_30/images/packers_header.png

    I do not know of a tutorial that will cover these things. It sounds like you may need to hire someone to help you. You can post a job request on at no charge to you.
