I've posted this elsewhere but didn't get a solution. Perhaps I had posted it in the wrong place.
I want to have my own header .jpg image and BG for the basic WordPress Theme. I've read my brains out on Themes, headers, FTP, CSS (which I simply do not understand after 2 years of trying).
I have my .jpg header and bg in /tracyfineart.com/blog/wp-content/themes/default in my FTP program. Yes, my blog is hosted.
I just can't figure out how to get my header and BG in there. And even if I did I wonder. I just want the BG to fill around the page, and the header has the same BG as my BG. I don't see how it would work because the default theme uses black as the color of the text for posting, etc. With my BG being almost black, the text would not be readable.
I've already messed around trying things, and have made my blog a little different from the basic theme. I don't dare do any more experiments.
I'm not sure I'm making myself clear.
