WordPress 101: Tips, Tricks & Hacks

The biggest reason why WordPress is the most prominent and influential Content Management System is due to its customizability. It doesn’t matter if you are a WordPress developer or a newbie, with just a little bit of understanding of the platform, you can customize it to a huge degree. 

WordPress is built for everybody, and not just hardcore developers. Therefore, it has multiple methods that you can use to make your WordPress website truly yours. For example, if you are an artist who has an art blog, you can make your website to anything your creativity can conjure up. 

Display Random Image Header

In this tutorial, we will teach you how you can make a dynamic image header for your WordPress website. Dynamic in this context means the ability of constant change. For example, you would learn to create an image header with the ability to randomly display different images. 

So, if you are someone who wants to add a dynamic flair to their blog or website the following instructions detail how you can do that: 

  • Step 1 – Select the images you want to show as your website header, and name them image1.jpg, image2.jpg, image3.jpg, and so forth. Then upload these images to the images folder in your theme directory.
  • Step 2 – After completing the above step, move ahead and add the following code snippet to your header file:
<img src="https://Path_to_image_folder/<?php echo(rand(1,10)); ?>.jpg" width="image_width" height="image_height" alt="image_alt_text" />


*Note – Do remember to edit and replace the path_to_image_folder with the actual path

Congratulations, if you have followed both the steps correctly, you should have a dynamic image header that is capable of showing multiple images in a series. Now, you can enjoy a WordPress CMS-powered website that fully represents your creativity without being a WordPress developer yourself.
