    I'll do it for a thousand dollars!

    Check the header.php file for the link to the header or just right click on the header and find out its url then replace the appropriate file.. should be in wp-content/theme/theme-name/images or something

    It doesn't have a header image at the moment. It's just the backround theme, have tried that..

    So do you need to replace an image or add it? If you need to replace simply find where the background image is located (In FireFox right click/view background image. Have a look at url) and replace it by uploading the new one. If you need to add a new image then it would be impossible to tell you how without having a look at the code.

    Post the code to your header.php file here and people will be able to help you. All themes are different.

    I don't know if this will work, but why not try installing Firebug first. Load up Firebug and then click inside where the header image should be and you can look at the CSS padding of the image. Then once you figure out the size, you can use an image you'd like and go over to an online image editor like piknik and edit the size. Then you can drop in your image.

    Just tried it...

    The only thing i get for the header part is this..

    <h1><a href="http://www.*******.com/">*******</a>


    </h1>


    Not sure if this is even where the image is supposed to go?
