Different headers for different pages?

    Hi guys!

    I’m wondering how to use different header images for different pages?
    As it looks now you can only have one header for all the pages…?

    Another question I would like to ask is how to remove the default “HOME” page. Is this possible?

    Thanks for your help!


    1. No, you cannot have different headers for different pages. What you can do is choose one of the themes that have no header image and add images of your own inside the content area of each page.

    2. That’s theme dependent: in some themes it’s built-in and you can’t remove it.



    Question 1: No can do. A header is a header and is part of all pages on your blog.
    Question 2: Not sure if this is what you are looking for: http://faq.wordpress.com/2007/02/20/having-a-static-page-at-the-front-of-the-blog/



    It is possible have a different header for different categories.

    First I had to create a page for the categories, renaming it “category” + the category ID Number

    So, for example… I duplicated my archive.php file and re-named it category-374.php.

    WP now knows, when someone clicks on that category it uses my special page vs. the archive.php.

    In “category-374.php” I replaced the line:

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    with the contents of my modified header.

    I found the WP Category Templates page helpful:
