I really wanted to use the new WordPress TwentyThirteen theme over on my other site http://www.versluis.com. But I didn’t like the idea of using the default header images.
Since my previous theme had random header images, I thought it would be great to tap into the now built-in function and prepare a child theme that overrides those existing header images with my own. Here’s how I did it:
- first we’ll create a child theme
- then we’ll remove the existing header images
- and add our own images
As a final touch I’ve tweaked the site title font and gave it a Photoshop-like outer glow, all in CSS. Let me talk you through it step by step.
