Appearance >> Header and check the radio button marked “Random: Show a different image on each page.”
how do I save bandwidth by using my photobucket account (or other file host instead of wp)
I don’t know that this is possible, since the header images you upload are saved to the MYSQL database, and the header is designed to pull them from the database.
However, you can save bandwidth by using a caching plugin. To be honest, the default images supplied with Graphene aren’t that big, and so really wouldn’t be a bandwidth issue. As long as you keep your custom images to around 100 to 200 kb, you should be fine. (If your host restricts your bandwidth that much, you need a new host.)Mod
Okay, that’s a horse of a different color…
Just upload your header images in the “Header” pane. Once you have more than one, a radio button marked “Random” will appear. Activate it, and then save. Mischief managed!
I don’t use this, but you can see it in action on my test blog:Mod
The images come from here, BTW:Mod
^OMG. Is it really that simple? My friend was telling all sorts of rotating scripts I have to use in the CSS.
Yes, it really is that simple, at least with Graphene. There are scripts you can use (Google “rotator.php”) to rotate header images on other, more ordinary, sites. (I used to use one on my main site and will again when I have more time to devote to the bells and whistles.) So your friend is right–but he or she doesn’t know about Graphene.
