Related to all images in CSS, not just header images:
  • use absolute paths when using background: url(image) somewhere in the theme options: background: url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/myimage.gif)
  • If your site is in a subdirectory /blog/ then use background: url(/blog/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/myimage.gif)

In version 3.3.3 a wrong Example path to images may be shown in the theme options. Something like


This should be




Both would work
I've gone over this checklist a few times already, and still can't get my header image to change. The current header is located at http://lynnfang.com/wp-content/theme...peharvest3.jpg and I would like to change it to this one: http://lynnfang.com/wp-content/theme...er/sprout3.jpg

I removed the grapeharvest3.jpg from the images/header folder, and uploaded the sprout3.jpg but nothing showed. I let it sit overnight, the next day still nothing.

There are no spaces or funky files in the images/header folder. I now have both the grapeharvest3 and sprout3 files in the images/header folder, but only grapeharvest3 will show.

I actually went to Photoshop, and replaced the grapeharvest3 image with the sprout3 image, to see if it would take the same file name with a new pic. It actually still remembered the original grapeharvest3 image, and didn't upload the new image.

I use Bluehost.com's internal 'FTP' to upload the header image.

Please help!! Thank you so much!

look in your css inserts, you have
HTML Code:
div#imagecontainer {
background-position:center top;
background-image:url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa353/images/header/grapeharvest3.jpg) !important;
remove it
