I have spent hours trying to do this to no avail. I have an image downloaded and have edited it, but I can't get it to replace the image there.

Hey! Log into your website, once you get to the dashboard you want to click the three lines on the left hand corner at the top, scroll down to Appearance, once you click Appearance then click on Header, then click on add new image, once you add image, you can click the preview button above it to check out your site.

Hi Jamillah, thanks for the directions. I did what you recommended already, but it didn't work. I think the problem is because of my theme. The image came with the theme, not one that I chose.

I am seriously thinking that I want to open a new website and start all over.

I really appreciate your response to my question.

Check out your theme attributes. It's not just cut and paste!

Thank you MKearns, I think the problem is with the theme. Do I need to create another website, or am I missing something?

I would explore a site built on another theme!

Thanks MKearns. I really like my niche and want to pursue it. When I set up a new website, I can still use the one I have been working with but redefine the theme.

Did you go into your Appearance menu, then Customize? There, you should be able to change the header image, but it really depends on the Theme you're using.

Yes, I went into Appearance menu, then to Header, then into Customize. Everything seemed fine until I tried to place it into my website. Do I need to start over with a new website? I think the problem may be that I am not allowed to change the header on the theme I chose.

You should look up that theme on google or look under Appearance > Themes, look at that theme's details to see where you can get info or contact for that theme so you can read about how to change the header image for that one.

Thanks littlemama. This gives me something new to try. I was about to scrap it and start over. Now maybe I can keep what I have already accomplished.

You never have to scrap it because you can just pick a new theme and change the theme very easily but yes, the theme is what makes changing header images easy or not. :)
