Header image

    Please can you advise if it’s possible to load a .gif image in the header?

    The blog I need help with is onamusicbender.wordpress.com.



    Im still waiting on a response to this query.

    SOrry, was trying to hunt that down.

    I think the header uploader only supports jpg and png. It would be the same file types for all themes with this feature.


    This is not good, as a stagnant header is not what I wanted. Is there anything or anyway of getting around this? Will purchasing the CSS upgrade help?


    Theme Author

    No, this is not a css issue. It’s a core WordPress issue, it just will not accept that file type.

    If you want a moving image, it sounds more like you need a slider, not a gif header.


    I’m so frustrated with this theme and all it’s limitations. The fact that it’s a premium theme and costs the same as other premium themes yet it does not have most of the same features.

    I don’t want a slider, because it is not a number of images that i want flashing but a logo design that is a gif file.

    Should I post this query in the general wordpress forum? Will that help?


    Also, it’s one thing to suggest the slider, however this theme does not accommodate sliders.


    Theme Author

    Yes, post the same question in the general forum.

    As I said before – the header image not being able to be a gif is not specific to this theme.


    Does this theme allow me to use plugins?


    Theme Author

    Plugins are not allowed on the wordpress.com platform – it does not matter what theme is used.

    You’d need to be self hosted for plugins.
