Support » Themes and Templates » That “photo at the top” question. Is there “insert image”?

  • Hello –

    It looks like many people have asked how to insert a photo at the top (masthead / header) of a thematic blog.

    There have been many answers, I can see many people trying to solve this problem without much success.

    Can anyone suggest a simple way to add a .jpg to the top of a page as part of the header?

    Thanks so much for any thoughts on a simple solution!!

    Good luck!

    Ian – thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

    For some reason the text formatting has been thrown off – any suggestions on what I might adjust?

    Hi Ian,
    I figured out what was happening.
    The #blog-title div was not below the final @import declaration.
    Looks fine now.
