How can I change my WordPress website’s header?

Posted OnOct 29, 2013     CategoryQuestion & Answer     CommentsNo comment

Most WordPress themes come with the ability for the user, you, to be able to change the site’s header (and more) without needing to get involved with writing code.

Step 1) Log in to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) Click Appearance in the left hand menu


Step 3) Click on Header. If you do not see header, this means you will be unable to change your theme through this method.


Step 4) Here, you can make changes to your header image, or choose from a different header that’s bundled (varies theme to theme), choose to remove the header entirely, and change the text color.
