Do you remember the post I did on Changing The Headers On Your WordPress Pages? I was thinking the other day about how cool it would be to have different category headers for my blogs. Well, now that I’ve updated to FlexSqueeze2 I’m able to change the headers on my categories as well! How cool is that?
Why Change Your Category Header?
Why changer your category headers? I’m so glad you asked. To me the most important reason for changing the image of your category headers is it shows your readers right from the start what each category is all about. They don’t say a picture is worth a thousand words for nothing you know.
Then there is also the added SEO benefit. You get this by giving your header the appropriate SEO related (by using your keywords) name. Another reason I like is it makes my blog stand out from the rest by being different.
Apparently there is a plugin that does this but my blogs are already plugin top-heavy.
Anyway I’ve produced a video that shows just how easy it is to have different category headers. Just follow the easy steps listed below.
Steps To Having Different Category Headers
First you have to design your header. I used The Logo Creator to make mine. It’s best to keep to the same dimensions as your original header.
Next you upload it to you images directory.
Then you go to the category section of your WordPress blog, (found in posts / categories) and click the edit button of the category that you want to have a new category header. When there look in the url for the ‘ID’ number and copy it down.
Next go to your FlexSqueeze options and click on Custom CSS Settings. Once there you paste the following code.
