    The Regulus theme allows animated headers. Are there other WP themes that do so?

    Here is a demonstration using Regulus, on an undeveloped blog of mine:

    The blog I need help with is songbook1.wordpress.com.

    Any theme with a custom image header is your answer. http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/custom-header/ BUT in order for a .gif to work it must be exctly the correct size for the header before you upload it. If the cropper comes into play the animation will be history and the image will appear as a black rectangle.

    Hi Timethief,

    Right. It’s been awhile since I looked into this. I think Regulus was the only one I found for which animated .gif images worked in the header when the size wasn’t a precise fit.

    Here’s the full animated .gif image used in the demonstration mentioned above:

    I haven’t learned how to create animated .gif images, or alter the size of found animated images.

    A precise fit is required for using a .gif in any of these themes http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/custom-header/

    Retired themes do not support all WordPress.com features and Regulus, is now retired.
