Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing headers by category, part of Dreamweaver CC and WordPress 3.8 Essential Training.
…In the Developing Category-Driven Pages lesson, you saw how to…limit the post and the content area to a specific category.…But, what about the other elements of the page like the header, sidebar, and footer?…Can those change according to the chosen category as well?…Well, the answer is, you bet.…In this lesson, I'll show you two…different techniques that work together to create…custom headers by category. To illustrate these techniques, what we're…going to do is swap out this background image that you see here in the header.…
So to start, I'm going to need to create a…new header file that's dedicated to the Conference category.…Let me expand my Files category, fully. And in the Roux…theme folder that we have here, I'm going to select Header.…And then press Cmd+D to duplicate it. On the PC, it's Ctrl+D.…Once that's duplicated, I'm going to…rename it so that's header-conference. Now…let's customize that file a bit. I'll open it up and…go into the code view.…
The first thing that we'll do is we'll add a new class to the header tag.…

Author update on April 4, 2014:
WordPress 3.8.2 is now available from wordpress.org. The update focuses on security issues and should not impact this course in any way. A much bigger release, 3.9, is currently a release candidate and will likely go live later in April. I'm currently evaluating what impact v3.9 will have on this course.
