I Want To Change My Header Image! How? (6 posts)

    How do I change from the default header to an image that I have saved on my computer? I host with hostgator. I've tried to follow the guide that wordpress provides, but it isn't understandable from a newbie standpoint.

    I want to insert my own image across the entire header(blue section). Can someone help guide me to achieve this process. I've tried myself NUMEROUS times, and have had to reinstall my wordpress like 2 times.

    Do you mean the whole dark blue section?

    Here's the code in your .css file that you have to change to change the background image on:

    	margin: 0 0 10px;
    	float: left;
    	width: 904px;
    	height: 250px;
    	background: url(images/bg_header.gif) no-repeat left bottom;
    	color: #333;

    To change your header, just change out the 'background' information to reflect your header.

    In case you're interested, this is the header image that they use for the theme:


    Alternatively, you can keep the main header and just layer on another image on top (the blue area like you said).

    	clear: both;
    	width: 904px;
    	height: 155px;

    To do that, add coding for a background into that block of code.

    I need to change some text in my top header and also text down the (R) hand side of my website (address details).

    My web designer has disappeared - v. frustrating. Any help/advice would be appreciated as to how I can administer this myself.
