Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing the header, part of WordPress DIY: Restaurant Website.
- Now it's time to start customizing our sites…to make it look the way we want.…And we're going to start at the top of the page…with the header section which contains…that site title and the menu and this large featured image…and this text here.…Here you have a lot of options and you kind of have to…experiment a bit to find out exactly what you want to do…for your particular site,…but in my case, here's my plan:…first I'm gonna get rid of the site description.…It's huge, it looks weird and I don't like it.…In place of it, I'm just going to display…a large feature image in the background here…that has a name of a little restaurant…across the top then I'm gonna change…the color scheme of the header…and I'll also consider adding a graphic in place…of the text that displays the site title.…
All of this can be done from the customizer.…So once you're logged in to your site…and you're on the front page, go to the…WordPress toolbar and click Customize…to go to the customizer.…And from here we'll just start right at the top…
