Learning the Fundamentals, Day Seven: Start Personalizing Your Site


Day Seven: Start Personalizing Your Site

You’ve got a theme you love – now it’s time to start personalizing! Time to inject more personality.

Today, add a custom header image or background (or both).

Here’s how:

  1. First, head to the Customizer by clicking on the button below. Choose the Custom Header or Colors & Backgrounds tab.
  2. Next, upload a photo you love to use as a header — you can try a few — or preview some background colors.
  3. Finally, decide which you like, and click Save & Publish to apply them to your blog.

Open your Customizer

Nothing you try in the Customizer is permanent until you click Save & Publish, so experiment with colors!

Want to try a little graphic design? You can use online tools like PicMonkey to create a free custom header in less than fifteen minutes. Learn more in the tools and tips for this assignment.
