Custom Banner --Header??? Holy Cow!

  1. I usually check in once a day, to see what's up, Comments, etc.; to say that I know N-O-T-H-I-N-G about behind-the-curtain tech stuff is equivalent to describing Grand Canyon as a ditch. So past few days I'm stuck home, watching paint dry, or rather the painter spackle the ceilings. I check in today --Leap'n Lizzards: I see a button –I've never seen before. Click --click --and click and whodda thunk it, top ("banner"? "header"?) of my blog has a picture –from my desktop. Yikes! I did a SEARCH: Comments imply that button appeared in JULY??? Never saw it. –I noticed Same Day when "Surf" button went up. Is Change-Blog-Top button new –today, or weeks ago??? Well, if you aren't sure: VERY Kewl, LUV the Button/Ability. Had the image on Desktop for years (for a different purpose) –wild about using it on blog, but my blog goes up a little slower. I don’t mind –anyone think it’s too slow, annoying?

  2. i'm a bit lost about what you're telling us here...

  3. I'm able to change the top --of my blog. (I added an image, from my Desktop.)
    -Is that feature: new --available just this week?
    -With change to my blog: does it make the page load too slowly now, for you?

  4. Poppy - the blog loads no slower than any other on wp.com, in fact quicker than some.

  5. KEWL!!! Podz told me there's something 'wrong' with my browser/system --or something else, and I've noticed things are quite different for me than for others, so I wasn't sure. (I REALLY don't want that FOX FIRE thing, etc.)
    (The flowers are deep-ish pink, right?)
    Thanks for reply!

  6. so meaning i can't do whatever you're doing? hmph

  7. Sulz: Say What??? Whatever does your sentence mean???

    Clueless....

  8. Yep, the flowers are deep pink. Are you on PC or MAC?

    I hate Firefox - too many resources - and use Opera instead.

  9. "deep pink" --Excellent. Thanks.

    Using: PC

    "Firefox...resources...Opera"
    If you put a Gun to my forehead: I couldn't say what a Single One of those words mean!!! Sheesh, this stuff SOOO Freak'n Complicated...I pick up a Rapidi-O-graph pen: I can draw; pick up a pencil I can write --on a piece of paper --NO translation necessary --don't need Sixty explanations How! Sheesh, WHO the Heck invented such Convoluted ways to do things with a computer??? Musta been a man...with a grudge...

    so that means i can't do what u do right?

    and yes it's those three pink flowers

  11. "...that means i can't do what u do right?"

    LOL --heck no --or rather Heck YES! I JUST figured out HOW --so I was Guessing Everybody else already knew! --I was asking: WHEN did that dishy little Button first Appear --cuz
    I'm wild for it. I HATED the original blue top, but now I have an Image I'm crazy for --in place of the blue blob. --I'm pretty sure (lol) that feature was not installed for me Personally! WHY do you say You can't do it to your blog?

  12. I think we've found a companion for Nosy and TT. :)

  13. wait a minute... poppy u're referring to the fact that you can put up a custom header image are you? but that's like available so long ago... i thought you were referring to something new.

    drmike: tt's long-lost twin.

  14. [drmike: tt's long-lost twin.]
    AHEM *cough* I heard that. And I'll have you know that I have been giving out instructions on how to rid one's header of the "blue blob" for ages now. As you can see I change my headers frequently. :D

    But I notice there is a delay when it comes to the default theme - patriotsfan is still waiting for his header to become changeable.

    @poppy - I love my firefox browser and all the things it can do. I consider my IE browser to be a *coughing* useless decoration.

  15. Actually I would think that the header images would be changeable for all of them with the CSS upgrade since I would think that the images are nothing but backgrounds for the header divs. Just do an override for the theme.

  16. I wanted to change my theme to that one that has two sidebars on the right. But someone on my blogroll already has it. :(

  17. So what if someone else already has "it". These themes are open source and pretty soon you'll be able to customize it in a way that makes it look uniquely your own. With the regulus header you have now you could put your avatar into paint and make a header really easily if you wanted to.

  18. tt: i didn't think you wouldn't see that. 0.0

    and does the blue blob refer to the header image? i'm still not sure if everybody's talking abt what i'm thinking it's abt...

  19. @sulz
    poppy had the sapphire theme and then there was a delayed response to the ability to change the header because sapphire and rubic were the last two that change was made to
    p.s. we should be dialoguing over here and of course anyone can join us to chat http://forums.tdjc.be/

  20. There aren't that many WordPress entertainment blogs out there. It's mostly Blogger and self hosted. So if him and I suddenly have the same templates, that would be HORRIBLE blog etiquette!

  21. thanks for confirming, tt. sometimes i'm s.l.o.w.

    For the record, that's what I am doing with mine Instead of loading the header with the "Upload an image" function, I'm just declaring a new background image for the header div (Actually I think it was the headerimg div) within my CSS.

  24. No I haven't. Thanks for the link TT.

  25. :) oh poppy where for art thou poppy?

  26. Right HERE! TT...trying really REALLY hard to translate --the stuff, above...sheesh, I speak some French, little Yiddish, bit of Greek --computerese: no way.... Who the Heck invented this stuff --and why do they hate humans. I did get one thing though, the click off the blue blob top/get any image I want --IS new, OK, kewl, I Thought so. I hadn't seen that button before. I clicked ALL the buttons when I first started here, before I lost any posts or searched Forums; was pretty sure it wasn't there; then when I returned this week, viola, it was.

    POLL: I want a man's opinion > Is the image (my blog top) a turn-off or 'frilly'/fussy? I've had the image for so many years, I've lost objectivity. Would it cause you to leave
    -not stay to read a post?

  27. What image?

  28. Three panels, images of poppies...you don't see it???
