    That’s the Structure theme and I’m using Firefox 12 and cannot see any images at all. Have you read this? http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/05/01/introduction-to-structure/

    Thanks for responding. I have read that as well as other posts about the theme. But they all talk about the featured image and not about headers or backgrounds. I’m so frustrated.

    The Structure theme is not designed to include either a custom header or a custom background.

    Please read the post I linked to again as it clearly describes how the Structure them is designed.

    Structure accepts both a header image and a bg image. You upload them in Appearance > Header and Appearance > Background, respectively.

    Hi! Thanks for responding. That’s where I uploaded them, but they don’t show. They appear as and “x” and you can’t see the image.

    I can see your header image. Since it includes the blog title, you must go to Appearance > Header, uncheck the option “Show header text with your image”, click Save Changes.

    But the sourcecode of your page shows no trace of a background image. Can you see one next to “Preview” in Appearance > Background?

    Are you using Safari?

    Defective! Now how do I fix that? Is it the format that I saved it as? It’s a jpg. Thanks!

    I figured it out! I had to optimize the files. Thanks for your responses:)
