If you have your own WordPress website, it is important to configure and customize it completely to your liking. The header of your website is an important part of this, as it often takes up a large portion of the top of your website. In this article, you will read how to customize and configure the WordPress header.
Login to WordPress
First of all, it is important to log in to your WordPress website. You do this with the account you created when you went to install the WordPress website. You were asked there to create a so-called admin account. Often, this is the account that has the most privileges, allowing you to modify the header and other important settings of your website.
Click on Display and then on Header
Once logged into your website, click on “View” in the menu on the left. A menu will open under Display in which you will see the heading “Header”. Click on this to open a new page where you will see information and current settings of your current header. On this page you can customize everything about your WordPress header to your liking.
Select images and crop if necessary
In this case, select a header image appropriate for you. This can be an image that you like and fits well with your current website style. You do this by clicking on the “Browse” button after which you get an explorer window from your PC. There you can search for an image you would like to upload. Once selected, the image will be uploaded, after which you can crop it to your liking. Once you have completed this, you can publish your new WordPress website header and it will then be visible as soon as you visit your website!
