Put a Banner for the Category pages

  • opcadia


    Hey guys, I’ve gotten a lot of help from the forum so far but I’m back with another question. I would like to replace the generic text that comes up for the different Category pages e.g.. Archive: Category: Video games… and instead implement a custom graphic banner that I’ve created for each. I really don’t have any idea where to begin so any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Btw my site can be found @ http://www.ThingsThatDontSuck.info if you’ve got any advice as far as the aesthetics, the code, or just a feature you’d think would work please let me know. Thanks for all the help!



    Hmmm.. interesting idea… I like it!!

    Okay, you would need to insert something like this into your customCSS menu:

    .page-title {
    background: url("http://www.LINKTOYOURIMAGE")

    Then you would need to FTP your image to your server, matching the link from the code above.

    NOTE: This is going to give you the same image on ALL places that have a page title. But your text will still show “on top” of the custom image.

    NOTE NOTE: You will need to play around with your image size to get it to look just right.



    One more thing… insert this into your customCSS to get rid of that gray area around your footer widgets:

    #sidebar_bottom {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #000000;



    And this to get rid of the last remaining gray at the bottom.

    #footer {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #000000;

    Then you would need to FTP your image to your server, matching the link from the code above.

    Or you could just add it to your media gallery and then use the link that WP provides when you save the item.



    if i wanted a unique individual banner for each category would my code just look like

    .comics-title {

    background: url(“http://www.LINKtoCOMICSimage.com”)



    .tvshows-title {

    background: url(“http://www.LINKtoTVimage.com”)


    comics and tvshows being the names of my categories



    I wish it were that easy 🙂

    To do that, you would need to create a custom function to tell the browser which page you are currently viewing, and to load the according image. Quite complicated for the average bear!
