    I want to switch out the blue header and use one that I have designed as a jpg on my computer. How do I do this?

    I am using Go Daddy hosting and installed word press using their C-Panel.

    This is all rather new to me as I have been building websites using a site builder, point drag and click. With that said please be as spefic as possible I am a beginner.Thanks, Jordy

  • First look at your source code to see where your existing header is displaying – it may be called in the code or it may be a ‘background’ image in your stylesheet – it will help to figure out the DIV (most theme files make heavy use of div’s such as this:

       <div id="header">(some code here)</div>
       <div id="container">(more code here)</div>

    And so on – you’ll need to figure out where the image is being called from, keeping in mind that it may be in your stylesheet. If it’s in your stylesheet it may look like this:

    #header {background:url(images/ no-repeat;}

    Then just replace that image with yours, and make sure to see if you need to modify that images containing style’s height/width, unless your new image is the exact same dimensions as the old one…..

    Post back if that doesn’t help.
