Spent hours and hours trying to figure out how the hell to add a banner to my page - never did manage it - this is my lj banner if I can ever figure out how to add one.

The banner is lovely.

It took me hours and hours to figure out how to add a banner. Since I know many people who have problems adding a banner I am in the middle of make a super simple tutorial on changing a banner. Unfortunately it isn't finished yet. I hope to have it ready in time for Seasonal Spuffy, but I'm not too sure I'll have the time.

Depending on what style (layout) you have it is easy to add or not, using a code or just the wizard. I'm not good in these things, I just collect tutorials. ;)
Fingers crossed for you that you get it up.

I cannot believe that LJ can't get the programs together so that user can add banners to their pages - And it's not just me, 90% of the persons I have asked about their lj styles and how they added their banner has replied that someone else did it for them. It should be obvious for the LJ owners that the customers want to use banners and that they need to design layouts that make it easy. They have dozens of styles and theme but none that let you easily upload a banner -

So far I have had a banner show up as a little slip of image at the top of my page, one that shows up first as an image and then disappears, one that is suppose to show up from the "header image" insert and now I have after hours a Custome Layer that magics my banner into the online ether. I did the whole "3 column style equals add a banner is easy" route -

I am determined to learn how to add a friggin banner - If either of you find out the MAGIC HOW - please let me know.

Thank you both for stopping by -

I'm waiting for an answer from Dawn, she added a new banner to her LJ.
Did you read my LJ when I tried to add a banner to my DW account? Fail at first then I changed the layout style. Turned out you can't simply add a banner to this one. *sigh*

So I changed the style and there is a page where you add the link to your banner plus can change your colors. Still not finished, when I am I will save the layout (the code) to bring it back easily.

I only know of 3column where you simply have to add a link. But that's not it, what you have, or?

What I have collected on tutorial is here:

jape_answers has a lot of tutorials, depending on what style you have.

I'm glad I've got my banner up on LJ but I'm not sure to how do it again. *gg*
