I spent much time frustrated because I couldn’t change the banner image in this new blog of mine. I wanted to use a stylized image of three purple bowls collecting sunlight, a picture taken in the office I was in during a fairly happy time in my teaching. I kept uploading it, and wondering if FileZilla was at fault, but mostly I berated myself for not knowing enough, for not being able to figure it out, even when I read online tutorials on the Atahualpa theme and WordPress for Dummies. did I mention I was frustrated? And my self-esteem was diving? Then I googled and found http://www.youtube.com/user/everymanmarketing#p/a/u/1/Xz8r8FG5zdw While I was watching it, I saw the file path, and my problem was solved! Even though I had the Atahualpa folder in my website folder and could apparently access it from the WordPress dashboard, it was in the wrong place. Once I moved it into this path order – wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header, I could get the picture I wanted where I wanted it.
I often find the density of what video shows more helpful than text descriptions and instructions.
