    I would like to move my blog from Blogger to WordPress, so I am checking wordpress options out now. I cannot seem to find an option of customising the template, so I looked in FAQ and realised I can not just customize html if I like, like I can on Blogger.

    The important thing for me is to have my own picture in the header. There was a list of themes were that option is available and I chose Contempt. However… Then what?
    How do I change the theme to Comtempt, and how do I put my picture in the header?

    Thank you.

    Go to your Dashboard, then Presentation. That will show you the current template you’re using and below it, all the available templates. Click on the one you want and hit Save and you’ll have it.

    Before doing ANYTHING ELSE, check to see that everything is okay. If you’ve got content there that’s too wide for your new template, you’ll have plenty of fixes to make before you can move on.

    Thank you. That was easy.

    But now I have another problem. I need to have – almost – the hole picture, but I can only select a relatively thin stribe, so some of the items is cut in half. My picture is not extremely high… but a bit maybe. Is there a max height limit or something?

    I couldn’t make it work with the crop size so I have reset it and don’t have more time for now…
    The system seems a bit unflexible.

    There are threads for “Resize picture” and some stuff in the FAQ as well, so read those tomorrow.

    either the benevolence theme or the pressrow theme has a big enough area to fit your image.

    sizes, for reference

    Hi, thank you for your answers, problem is solved now. I changed the picture so it fits the Contempt template’s format.
    In blogger there is not so many restrictions (none, actually), so I have to get used to fit in here, I guess
