how to layer images over the existing images

Postby Karlis » Thu Aug 30, 2007 9:18 pm

I have received following request. Maybe somebody can help.

"I have signed up for a WordPress blog and would like to modify the header of the blog so that it corresponds with the rest of my site. I can't figure out however how to layer images over the existing image using Rapid CSS."

it depends on the theme. wordpress uses different 'themes' to layout the blog.

the easiest way would be to make a new image of the same size, rename it to the image being called (via view source) and overwrite the image on the server.

if they know some css, they can find the css file in /wp-content/themes/YOUR THEME NAME/style.css. in there, s/he could change the background: declaration for the header. again, it really depends on the theme once you get into editing files. replacing the image is the fastest path.

lots of info on the wordpress.org forums:

and in the docs
