Comment on WordPress Header Images by SEO Dave.

WordPress Custom Header Options Any images added under “Appearance” >> “Header” will be saved in your default uploads folder.

By default WordPress sets the uploads folder to

Your images are organised by month, so something added this month (November 2014) will be under.


If you wanted access to thse via FTP you’d access the server with an FTP program and go to /wp-content/uploads/2014/11/

You can also access images directly under your WordPress Dashboard under “Media” >> “Library”.

If you just uploaded an image via “Appearance” >> “Header” it will be the first image shown, it’s organised by newest image first. Here you can delete any images you don’t want anymore.

To use a Stallion 2011 Header Image uploaded via “Appearance” >> “Header” you’ll see it on the options page “Appearance” >> “Header” where it can be ticked to be used etc…

To use with the Stallion 2011 Header Area go to “Stallion Theme” >> “Layout Options” and tick “Activate 2011 Header Area”.

Note: Images uploaded this way only work with the Stallion 2011 Header Area, that’s the header area with the big image below the title of the site. This doesn’t work with the Alternative Stallion Header Area, that’s the header area like I’m using on this site with the image behind the title of the site. If you want a custom image with the alternative header it has to be uploaded via FTP, see main article from the heading “Alternative Stallion Header Area” for instructions.
