The header image in Connections is 741 x 142. I would like to make it 741 x 220. I would like it to cover what's left of the original header: a green band with links to "Home" and "About." At a minimum, I'd like to change the color of that green band.
I have the blog name in the image. When WordPress superimposed the blog name automatically on the image, the placement was awkward. In addition, WordPress adds the text "another WordPress.com weblog," which I definitely want to remove.
I chose Connections because of the layout and because it has page navigation. (I assume that means I can add pages to the blog.) The theme, however, is green, and I'd like to make the headings blue to harmonize with my picture.
I haven't purchased the CSS upgrade yet. I changed the image dimensions in the code, but that didn't make any difference.
Any and all help most welcome.
