Tutorial: Customizing your blog header

I made my header with Thistlegirl graphics, using a design software I've had for years.



It wasn't hard to put the header together, but it took a bit of time to find the right size so it would fit on the page nicely.

To change the header, you must go to this screen on the Design page

(this image shows my site title with the word "Header" in parentheses).

All you need to do now is to upload your image and choose "Instead of title and description" under Placement.


If you choose the Ethereal template, as described in Making your blog look more like a website (Part III) , the header will need to be 904 pixels, to fit neatly at the top of the page.

  1. Kristen, I can't thank you enough for all of your tips and tutorials on your blog! I just found this post about headers this morning and added one to my blog. It was SO easy thanks to you. And it's also because of you that I know how to add a direct link to my blog in comments. You're amazing and I had to say THANKS! :)
