Removing the header in the Default theme (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I installed WordPress through my godaddy account.

    I've spent the last 4 or 5 hours trying to figure out how to get rid of the header - either to get rid of it completely or to replace it with my own image.

    I've done a fair bit of googleing, and I see quite a few other people have had the same problem - there are lots of people explaining what to do, but I really need this explaining in baby-steps.

    I've read, for example, people saying 'locate such-and-such image or file' - but I haven't a clue where to find those images/files.

    I really need this explaining in real basic terms - like 'go to this page' 'click on this' 'delete this'... etc.

    Would be very much appreciated.

    Anyone..?

    I've also seen advice that it's easier to install a different theme - the WP site says that in order to do that, "you generally just need to upload the theme folder into your wp-content/themes directory."

    I haven't a clue where the wp-content/themes directory is or how to upload to that.

    Also, I just want a very simple design - a layout that makes for easy reading of the text, without bells and whistles... like the Default themes - not like the other themes I've seen.
