Customizing the Header

Video Transcription

Hi. This is Brad with, and in this video, I will be talking about the “Header” section, which is underneath the “Appearance” tab. So if we scroll over to the “Appearance” tab here and click on “Header”, we’ll see the section that will allow us to add a logo or a head shot. So what I’m going to do, is I’m going to click on “Choose File”, and I’m going to find a head shot of myself from my computer. So I found it here. I’m going to double click, and then I’m going to go ahead and click on the “Upload” button here.

What WordPress is going to do behind the scenes is, it’s going to upload the file. It’s going to ask if I want to crop it at all, but I’m not going to, so I’m going to click “Skip Cropping” and “Publish Image As Is”. So it’s gone ahead and added my head shot up above on the header. If we click back to our blog and refresh, you’ll see my smiling face up top there, which you can use for a head shot yourself or for a custom logo.
