Using the WordPress Header feature

The WordPress Header feature is common, but how it’s used is different depending on the theme and how it utilizes this built-in feature that is part of WordPress. Circumference Lite uses it to style the background image of your banner area. You have a couple options:

  1. Use one standard background header image throughout your website
  2. Use the WordPress Header setting to provide random backgrounds when the page refreshes or when visitors navigate page-to-page

By default, your header background will look like this:



Change or Add a Custom Header Image

As mentioned, you get a nice muli-coloured blue header image which you can keep, remove, or add more images to create a random rotating function when using the WordPress header feature. 

I should also mention that if you want to accommodate the largest monitors that have 2560px resolutions, you will want to use images that are that size in width. However, if you cannot make that size, try for 1920px. The height can be any height you want, but if you plan to use this header background with sliders or any other content within the banner area, I recommend making the height big enough such as 500px. If you plan to only use the header background for custom header captions (like you see in the orange banner screenshot above), then you only need on that is around 100px in height.

  1. Go to Appearance >> Header
  2. Choose to remove it and upload your own or you can add more and select the random setting
  3. Click Save

It should be noted that this background will show when you use sliders or add any other type of content into the Banner widget position.
