Hello, I put together a collage of cartoons to add to my header of WP Whitehouse theme.


It does say custom-header - in fact, it says a lot of custom things -- but I can't get anything to work. I assume it's a pay thing. However, since the theme is so old now, can't you give us guys a break?


It's classically handsome, and I would really like to use it, and have already adapted some things. How to switch out the blank header that just has text and add an image? The image, collage.jpg, is already in my images file.


I've tried: adding #header{background:url(imageurl) 0 0 no-repeat;} and the like to stylesheet with no success.


All advice welcome. http://donnabarstow.com/

Hi there, you can add an image using css. Once you've uploaded to the media gallery add the image using the following css which will give an effect like http://screencast.com/t/oeqKtIBtqcwI


#header .content {
    background: url("your image url goes here");
