[dn_wp_yt_youtube_source type=”101″ id=”s_XGM_F9gNk”]

Are you wanting to display random header images on your WordPress site? Most WordPress themes come with built-in support for header images to edit the look and feel of your site. In this video we will show you how to add random header images to your WordPress site without any code.

The first method we would recommend is built in to WordPress itself, you would want to go under Appearance, Customize to open the customizer. Now select the header tab to expand it, the tab can have a few different possible labels depending on the theme. You will see your site’s current header image and any other images available to use.

If you want to use a new one you would click on the Add image button to upload the images you want to use in the header. With the images added you will want to click the Randomize uploaded header button and save your changes.

For our second method we recommend using the plugin:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-display-header/ 

With the plugin installed and activated you will want to edit a post or page to see the new area. There will be a new meta box labeled header below the post editor that allows you to select any previously uploaded header as the header for that specific post or page. If you want to add another image you would need to go back under Appearance, Customize.
