Designing Headers on Wordpress.com

They say you can not judge a book by its cover, and yet every day people do. They pick up a book, look at the cover, and then are moved to either put it down, turn it over, or open it up just because of how the cover looks. Websites are also judged by their covers and the first impression often comes from the header.

The header of your site is typically the first thing people see. From this masthead or header art across the top of your page, people make sweeping judgements about what they are about to see and read. The same people who say you can not judge a book by its cover, also say that you only have 30 seconds to make a good impression. In the world of the Internet where the next web page is a click away, you have much less than that.

We are going to take you inside the architecture of a WordPress header and offer tips on how to customize it to become your own book cover, enticing people into your site with a good first impression. Then we will offer some tips from some experts on what makes a good website header.

The WordPress Header

By default, the WordPress header is a simple piece of code. You do not have to get into the code to change the header that comes with whatever WordPress Theme you choose. You set the blog or website title and description in the Administration > Settings > General panel, and WordPress does the rest.

In its simplest form, the WordPress Classic Theme features the header code like this in the wp-content/themes/classic/header.php template file:

<h1 id="header">
<a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a>
</h1>

The header is set in an h1 HTML tag and features one template tag used with two different options or parameters. You can learn more about these parameters in the documentation for bloginfo(). Basically, the first one displays the URL of the website in a link, and the second one displays the name of the blog or website as set in the Administration > Settings > General panel. When the user moves the mouse over the header title, the header can be clicked to return back to the main or front page of the site as set in the Administration > Settings > General panel.

The WordPress Default Theme features an image in the background and presents the header like this in wp-content/themes/default/header.php:

The header of the Kubrick Theme

Again, the template tag featuring the name of the blog or website is in a link, but this shows another usage similar to the URL request above. It gets the same information, just in a different way. It also adds the description of the site from the Administration > Settings > General panel.

Basically, these two header examples do the same thing in different ways. They provide information in the header, with the potential for an image, and make the header title clickable to help navigation on the site. It is just a matter of how much information you want in your header, and how that information is displayed.

Using the first example from the Classic Theme, an image can still be used in the background, set within the style sheet in the h1 selector, but the second one gives more control to the use of an image in the header by giving it its own division. How these look are totally controlled by the style sheet.

Styling the Header

As listed in the two above examples, the styles for the header are contained within the h1, header, headerimg, and descriptionCSS selectors. These are all found within the style.css, though may be found in the styles in the header.php of the Theme you are using. You will have to check both places.

In the Classic Theme, the CSS for the header are found in one selector, the #header.

#header {
	background: #90a090;
	border-bottom: double 3px #aba;
	border-left: solid 1px #9a9;
	border-right: solid 1px #565;
	border-top: solid 1px #9a9;
	font: italic normal 230% 'Times New Roman', Times, serif;
	letter-spacing: 0.2em;
	margin: 0;
	padding: 15px 10px 15px 60px;
}

The background color is set to a green shade and there is a border all the way around the header which changes colors creating a recessed, shadow effect. The Times font is set with a size of 230% with a wider than normal letter spacing. The padding on the left side indents the text in from the left.

All of these can be easily changed, giving the border a thicker width and making it all the same color, changing the background color, the font size and style, the letter spacing, and more by modifying the information in each style attribute.

The same is true of the Default WordPress Theme header, except there are more styles to think about and they are found within the header.php‘s “head” tag and the style.css, though once you have your styles set, you can move the information into your style sheet.

The styles that control the header’s look is found within the h1, header, headerimg, and description CSS selectors. Just like the Classic Theme, find these references and make your modifications there to change the look.

Changing the header image of the Default WordPress Theme has been simplified with the introduction of a utility called Kubrickr. It simply asks you to supply a new image file name for the header and then switches it for you, so you do not have to dig into the code. If all you want to change is the header image, this is an extremely useful and easy tool.

If you do want to get your hands into the code, dig into your header styles and make the changes. Below is a simple tutorial on changing just the header image manually.

Connections Theme Header

Changing the Header Image

There are many different header images and header art available for you to use to change the image in the header. The styles for the header image for the Default or Kubrick WordPress Theme, and any Theme based upon that Theme, are more complicated to change than those for the Classic Theme. The styles are found within the styles in the header.php “head” section, as well as in the styles.css. To change only the header image reference, open the header.php template file and look for the styles like this:

#header {
  background: url("<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/wc_header.jpg") 
  no-repeat bottom center; }
#headerimg  {
  margin: 7px 9px 0; 
  height: 192px; 
  width: 740px; }
NOTE: The use of the bloginfo tag only works when the style is used within the head of the template file. WordPress template tags will not work in the style sheet (style.css). To move this style to the style sheet, change the template tag to the actual address (URL) of the header image graphic.

To change the image file, replace the “kubrickheader.jpg” with the name of the new graphic image you have uploaded to your site to replace it. If it is in a different directory, change that by replacing the bloginfo() tag with the specific address of the graphic’s location.

If you are using an image that is the same size, then simply replace the image. If it is a different size, fill in the height and width of the image in the next section called #headerimg. If you do not know, and are using Windows, view the folder in which the image resides on your computer in Thumbnail view mode. Click View > Thumbnail from the Windows Explorer menu. In Thumbnail view mode, find your image and hold the mouse over it. A small balloon tip will pop up listing the dimensions. Use that information in the styles. Otherwise, just right click on the image file and choose Properties and it should give you the file size and dimensions.

Save the template file and upload it and the image to your website and take a look. Some changes may need to be made to fine-tune the placement and look.

With the header image in place, it is time to tackle the rest of the header. Open your style.css style sheet file and look for the following:

  • h1
  • header
  • headerimg
  • description

Your Theme may or may not have all of these, but the Default Theme has all of them in different places within the style sheet. All or some of these may need to have the attributes changed to change the look of your header.

If you change the size of the header image or header art, be sure and change the other structural CSS selectors like content and sidebar to accommodate the change in the header size.

Header Image Specifications

A header image that fits within the Default WordPress Theme is about 192 x 740 pixels. If you are replacing the header within any WordPress Theme, check the size of the header image and then find a replacement that matches that size. If you choose a header image that is smaller or wider or taller than the replacement, you may have to modify the other structural elements of the web page to allow for the change in size of the header.

If you are modifying the entire site’s Theme, the width of the overall page or content area needs to be taken into consideration for the header image’s size. The two most common screen sizes are 1024×768 and 800×600 pixels. Yet, wide screen monitors are gaining ground and web designers now need to prepare for screen widths of 1280×1024 and 1600×1200.

If you set your website to “float,” positioned in the middle of the browser window with space on either side, then you can set your header width to whatever you want. If you are designing a Theme with a flexible or “elastic” screen width, then the width of your header becomes important.

If you are using a header image that can be repeated, and you are using elastic widths, you can set the styles within the header to repeat to fill the space:

#header { 
background: url("/images/kubrickheader.jpg") 
repeat-x top left; }

This sets the header image to repeat horizontally beginning from the top left corner and going across. You can adjust these to whatever background position your header design and layout needs.

Header Art

A new term growing in the web design field is header art. These are header images that are usually handmade using combinations of color, shapes, symbols, images, and text. They can take some time and labor to create. While there are some free header art sites, some sites sell their handmade header art. Although a photograph may be unique in its own way and convey the needed visual style, handmade header artwork is easier to match to other web page colors and is usually more aesthetically pleasing because of its distinctive nature.

Choosing pre-made header art has some benefits. The artists have already done the work and all you have to do is choose the design that best matches your website. And the graphic is ready to use, already sized and saved as a small file size.

Digital Westex’s WordPress Header Art features a wide range of header art sized and ready for free download specifically for WordPress.

Header Art Copyrights

The best header art to use, if you do not want to generate your own, is any that bear the Creative Commons License that specifically allows its public use. Read the individual license for the image’s use to make sure that you have permission to use the header art on your site. Usually you must attribute the author, share alike and not use it for commercial purposes. If in doubt, always ask permission from the author before use.

As header art is made and licensed “as is” by the designer/artist, some header art cannot be modified without the artist’s permission. Check the website copyrights and licenses and ask if you are in doubt and wish to modify the artwork.

Designing Your Own Header Art

You can also design your own header art. Any graphic design software program will work. Popular ones include Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Elements, JASC PaintShop Pro, The Gimp and Macromedia Fireworks. The graphic design software should have the ability to resize and control the resolution and type of the image when saved. The size of your header art should be the size of the header container you’re going to put it in.

You can use your own photographs, artwork, fonts, and any combination of images to create your header art. When done, save it “for the web” as a jpg, gif, or .png file. For an explanation on which to use read Sitepoint’s GIF-JPG-PNG What’s the Difference article. These file types will compress the image’s resolution, reducing the file’s size. In general, avoid file sizes larger than 50K as larger sizes tend to slow a site access times.

Fast Track Theme Header

Hiding the Header Text

Many Themes and Theme designers want to feature their header with a picture only, no text. Some will put the text in the graphic image, therefore not requiring the actual use of the text. One option is to remove the template tags that generate the title and description. The other option is to leave it in, but hide it.

To hide the header text while leaving it in the code, do not change anything in your template files. Only change the CSS. Add display:none to the CSS selectors you do not want to appear. For example, to hide the text within the h1 selector:

h1 {display:none; font-size: 230%; color: blue;.......

It is still there, but the browser has been commanded to not show it in any way. The container literally is “not there.”

It might be hidden, but some web page screen readers and search engines will still find the information. If you are serious about making your site be accessible, some newer text readers access the style sheet and do not read the elements marked display:none. There are two popular methods for working around this. One is to use the display:none as outlined above, but also include an aural style sheet that changes that selector to display:block, “turning the visibility” back on. The other method is to position the content literally “off the page” by a negative indent. Here is an example:

h1 {
   font-size: 0;
   text-indent: -1000px; }

This technique moves the entire h1 tag and its contents physically off the web page. The screen reader will still “read” the text because it is there, but it will not display on the page. Extensive testing has proven so far that this technique works across most browsers and with all screen readers.

For more information on either technique and aural style sheets:

Making the Whole Header Clickable

To make the entire header, graphic and all, clickable, you must put the header graphic inside of a link. There are two ways to do this. You can put the graphic directly into the WordPress Theme manually, or you can use the stylesheet to define the link size area to encompass the header art area.

To make the header art clickable by embedding it into the header, in the wp-content/themes/classic/header.php template file of your WordPress Theme, change the following:

to this code snippet:

  

You can style the h1 heading to overlap or sit below, or not even be visible in the header.

To make the overall area of the header clickable, the header must have a width area set for the h1 anchor HTML tag to make the clickable area cover the header image in the background. The styles are set in the stylesheet.

The HTML and WordPress Template Tags look like this, the same as above:


The CSS would then be styled something like this to enlarge the clickable link area and hide the header text (optional), customized to your own design needs.

#header h1 a {
	width: 400px;
	height: 100px;
	display: block;
	background: url(images/headerimage.gif) no-repeat top left;
	}
#header h1 a span { display: none; }

Another option is to add a script to make the header section clickable, which may not work for all browsers. This is showcased in the Default WordPress Theme (Kubrick) with its clickable header:

  • Open the wp-content/themes/default/header.php template file.
  • Change from

If you want both text areas of the header to be clickable and not the entire header image, use the following to make the header art and the blog title and description clickable.

Head Theme Header

Rotating Header Images

There are several scripts available that will allow you to rotate images within the header, sidebar, or on any template file. We will examine the use of one of these, the Random Image Rotator.

Save the script to a separate folder in which you have the header images you wish to rotate in your header. For this example, call it rotate.php. To use this as a background image that changes or rotates with every load of the web page:

#header { 
background: url("/images/headerimgs/rotate.php") 
no-repeat bottom center; }

To actually put this in your header, or elsewhere on your site, add an image link like this within the header division:

<img src="/images/headerimgs/rotate.php" alt="A Random Header Image" />

Image rotating scripts include:

RDC Theme Header

Adding Navigation to Your Header

Headers are another area where you can add navigation elements to your website. Typically these are horizontal menus at the top or bottom of your header. To add these, create a new division within the header to style your header navigation elements.

This can be as simple as displaying your categories across the top of the header using one of the List Categories template tags. Let us look at one example using the list_cats() tag.

In this example, the list_cats() template tag is set to sort the list of categories by ID in an unordered list (<ul><li>) without dates or post counts, does not hide empty categories, uses category "description" for the title in the links, does not show the children of the parent categories, and excludes categories 1 and 33. It sits in its own "category" division. Notice that a link to the "home" page or front page has been included manually at the start of the list.

To style this list, the #categorylist in the style.css might be:

#categorylist {font-size:12px; font-style:normal;
        text-transform:uppercase; }
#categorylist ul {list-style-type: none; list-style-image:none; 
        margin:0; padding-bottom: 20px; }
#categorylist li { display: inline; padding: 0px 5px;}
#categorylist a:link, #category a:visited {color:blue}
#categorylist a:hover {color:red}

It might look like this:

WORDPRESS   COMPUTERS   INTERNET NEWS

You can also add your Pages, archives, and other links within your header navigation. For more information on navigation menus:

Header Tips

Here are some tips and information to help you choose and customize your WordPress site's header.

Pay attention to text placement and color.
The colors and placement of the text within a header can add or subtract to your presentation. Here are some tips.
  • If you use white text, make sure there is a background color in the header and/or headerimg to showcase the white text again if for some reason the image does not appear on the screen or the user has "show images" turned off. This will allow your white text to still be visible.
  • If the image has a main feature or element, position the text so it does not cover the main subject of the image.
  • If the text is hard to read against a busy area of the graphic, position the text to a less busy area of the header image.
  • Make sure the color of the text is easily seen by your visitors and does not clash with the header art colors. Fluorescent orange text on a lime green background is painful.
  • Be aware that some color differences and patterns in your header art may make the text letters in your overlaid text "disappear." The same applies if you embed the text in your header art or header image.
Have a purpose and point.
A good header reflects the content of the site. The rest of the site has to meet expectations and live up to the header, so the header must reflect the content, purpose and intention of the site.
It should invite visitors to remain.
A good header is like the cover of a book or magazine. It should encourage people to stay and have a look around, read and look more, and find something of value. It is the teaser, the lead that grabs their attention and says "there is something worth exploring here."
It should blend in with the overall look.
Bold and dramatic headers lend themselves to boldly designed sites, whereas soft and pastel colored sites lend themselves to gentler graphic headers. A site dedicated to punk rock and grunge should have a header look punky and grungy. It is up to you, but think consistency.
Headers do not need to have pictures.
Not all headers must have pictures and graphics. Sometimes the words are more important, whether they are against a wash of color or a white background.
Cluttered headers are still cluttered.
Avoid cramming ads, navigation, text, scrolling news feeds, and the kitchen sink into your header. Simple is always better.
Maintain accessibility standards in your header.
We mentioned hiding the header text, and there is more you can do to make sure your header meets accessibility standards. Use the h1 tag so screen readers will recognize it as a header. Use titles and alt descriptions in links and images used in the template file (not in the style sheet as background images).
Headers can be any height, but remember content sells.
The average header is less than 200 pixels high, but headers range in height from very thin to a half page. Remember that the main reason people visit your site is its content, and the more they have to scroll down past your header to get to the content, the less interested they tend to be. Help lead them to the content with your header.
Think "Site Identity."
A header is part of the site's identity or "brand" and people like to know they are on the same site when they click a link to another page within that site. Consider your header or header art as your site's "brand identity".

Header Resources and Information

Header Images

Many WordPress Themes come with header image graphics you can use because they are released for free use under the GPL - General Public License. Or you can use one of the many resources available for free on the Internet, or design your own.

Here are a few resources for header images:

Get a Homepage

HomePage

You can easily turn your blog into a website, with a static homepage that people will land on every time they arrive. Combine a homepage with other static pages and somecustom menus to help visitors navigate, and before you can say “Told you so!” you’ve got a website.


Create your homepage

Start off by creating the page you’d like to use as your homepage. Go to My Sites → Pages → Add. Call it “Home.” Don’t worry about writing it yet — we’re just getting your website set up here. Stick in a bit of placeholder text if you’d like.

Now, create a second, blank page by going once again to My Sites → Pages → Add and call it something like “News,” or “Blog,” or “Posts” — a name that will help you remember that this is the page on which your posts will appear.

To designate your static homepage, go to My Sites → Customize → Static Front Page:

staticfrontpage

Then, under Front page displays, choose Static page. Next, click on the Front pagedropdown list and select the “Home” page you created as your static homepage:

selecthome

Next, on the Posts page dropdown, select the “Posts” page you created. (This is where your new blog posts will appear, should you choose to write posts for your site.)

selectpostspage

Last, click on Save & Publish for these changes to take effect.

Now, when you go to your web address, you’ll see your new homepage rather than blog posts. Granted, you’re looking at either a blank page or some placeholder text, but still! You’ve built a website. Kudos.


Make your homepage beautiful

Now that you’ve laid the technical foundations for a static homepage, it’s really just a matter of deciding how to present it in a compelling way. Here are a few ideas:

  • Create a gallery, single full-width image, or slideshow to show off some of your best work. We cover this in Get Flashy.
  • Create a welcome message and linked list of your favorite posts.
  • Go wild with images, text, galleries, and media that set the tone for your site.

Making your homepage work for you

If you want your homepage to really serve your interests, make sure that you think about including:

  • A clear, custom menu pointing to your best content, pages, and blog categories. You’ll learn all about that in Get Published.
  • An arresting visual look, from header to custom colors and fonts. You’ll learn how to put those into action in Get Configured.
  • Some useful widgets in the sidebar of your blog, to help people find their way around or get an at-a-glance picture of what your site or blog is all about. You can learn about setting up and getting the best out of widgets in Get Flashy.

That’s it — you should now have a static homepage that transforms your site from simple blog to beautiful website.

NECO

The National Examination Council (NECO) is an examination body in Nigeria that
was created in April 1999 by one
of the last acts of the Abdulsalami
Abubakar military administration. NECO conducts the Senior
Secondary Certificate Examination
and the General Certificate in
Education in June/July and
December/January respectively. It became the first Federal
organization to offer subsidized
registration to academic
candidates in Nigeria. NECO was mandated to take over
the responsibilities of the National
Board of Education Measurement
(NBEM) which was created, in
1992, by the Ibrahim Babangida
administration. When NECO was to take
exclusive charge of the conduct of
the Senior School Certificate
Examinations (SSCE) for school
based candidates, the West
African Examinations Council (WAEC) was to take charge of the
same examination for private
candidates. By January 2000, NECO offices
had been established in every
State and FCT. NBEM operated
with six zonal offices located in
Bauchi, Ibadan, Katsina, Makurdi,
Owerri and Ilorin. NECO created other zonal offices in Akure,
Asaba, Damaturu, Enugu, Lagos,
Port Harcourt, Sokoto, Uyo, Yola
and Kano. One of the greatest achievement
of NECO is that it has provided
gainful employment for over a
thousand Nigerians and given
hope to thousands more –
candidates who had been able to keep their matriculation dates
because of the timely release of
their results by NECO. NECO is headed by a Registrar,
Promise Okpala, appointed by
President Goodluck Jonathan. It
has six departments, each headed
by a director. Each Department
has divisions, composed of units. A team of directors and a registrar
are the governing body, which is
headed by Chairman Dr. Paddy
Njoku. Senior Secondary Certificate
Examination (internal and
external): Nigeria offers six years of basic education, three years of
junior secondary education, three
years of senior secondary
education, and four years of
tertiary education. Mathematics
and English language are compulsory. Junior Secondary Certificate
Examination (JSCE) – intended for candidates in the 3rd year of
their junior secondary education in
Federal Unity College and other
Federal secondary schools.
Private secondary schools also
take part in JSCE. In state secondary schools, JSCE
examinations are conducted by the
state government. National Common Entrance
Examination (NCEE) is administered to pupils in their 6th
year of basic education for
admission into Federal Unity
Colleges. Two examinations are
held annually. On 15 July 2013, some plans
where made by the federal
government of Nigeria to remove
the National Examination Council
(NECO) from the Nigeria
Education System due to low and average passing percentage from
candidates across the state in
Nigeria. NECO’s official website is http:// http://www.neconigeria.org/
