    If you’ve created a child theme of bp-default, you could disable the custom header function by adding the following to your theme’s functions.php
    `define( ‘BP_DTHEME_DISABLE_CUSTOM_HEADER’, true );`

    From that point on, you could search for a plugin which does what you need
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-display-header/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cimy-header-image-rotator/
    or something like the above

    What’s a child theme? :$

    The cimy one didn’t work, going to try the 1st one.

    I assumed you wanted to use the bp-default theme. But it’s bad practice to make the changes there because those will be overwritten when you upgrade BP. So it’s prudent to create a child theme of bp-default theme – http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/building-a-buddypress-child-theme/

    And i need to know how to turn the header into a link to home!!!

    plz help

    What’s not clear is what you have done so far and if you have indeed created a child theme of bp-default. Help us help you.

    where in functions.php should i put this define( ‘BP_DTHEME_DISABLE_CUSTOM_HEADER’, true );?

    I created the child, tryied to install the cimy image rotator and it never recognized the img’s i uploaded to it.

    Here’s my msn messenger so we can communicate better and faster megt12@gmail.com

    @megt12 on a public help forum it’s bad form to expect or try and move a topic away to private messaging, help given is always thought to perhaps be useful to others stumbling across the thread in searches.

    Defines go in your wp-config.php file.

    You will definitely be needing to explain the steps you have taken thus far and the point you are at if it’s going to be possible to provide meaningful help.

    Actually, as everything i tryied failed, the only thing i’ve done is to create a child theme as its explained here http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/building-a-buddypress-child-theme/

    And changed the size of the header.

    So basically i’m just beggining. If someone could tell me step by step, not assuming i know anything at all xD

    I have the default coding. Need to make my header a link to home, so if some 1 clicks it, it goes to home, and if it’s possible for it to change between 3 or 4 img’s, it would be great.

    Thanks.
