Dumb Wordpress Question

by 9 comments
I cannot seem to replace the header on this blog.

What is the code to get the header area to point to a picture that I want on there?

    If there is anything else that I am doing that is blatantly silly, please pipe in.

    Although I think at 230 posts I am just now man enough to take it.

    You need to edit the header file in the template.
    Go to the "Design" Area Click the "Theme Editor" link and then choose to edit the header file from the list of templates on the right.
    Chances are that's where you'll find the image, and can change it to what ever you want.

    -- Edit --
    I suppose it may also be in the style sheet if it's not in the header.
    Also - what version of wordpress are you using?

      If you just want to replace the image it is located in wp-content>themes>options>styles>blue-danube>images>header.gif

      The easiest would just to swap out the original image with yours using the same name, header.gif. If you really want to change the name, which I don't recommend then you look at the css file in the blue-danube folder called, blue-danube.css and look for these lines:

      #header h1 a {
      width: 350px;
      height: 80px;
      margin-left: 10px;
      display: block;
      color: #f7f7f7;
      background: url(images/header.gif) no-repeat 0 0;

      replace the header.gif with your file name.

    Hi Charles,

    Edit the header file. I recommend using an FTP client software. Do not use the built in editor in wordpress - no code coloring and possible mistakes...

    Good luck!
