Have you tried out the new header features yet?

The recent big update that affected all Jimdo pages that were created BEFORE January 2, 2009 was finished a few weeks ago. Now we want to take the opportunity to introduce you again to the new "emotion" header interface. Since the update, it's been available to all Jimdo users, even those with older sites. Exciting, right? Keep reading to learn everything about the new options it offers...

New Possibilities!

We don't want to speak too poorly of the old header tool, but the new one can do so many more things, it's way better. A site's header really makes it individual and distinctive. We already offer a gallery of headers for you to choose from -- a gorgeous variety of choices, if we do say so ourselves. If you want to upload your own picture, that's a great way to add a unique touch to your Jimdo page.

 

When you're editing the header, click on "Settings" on the new toolbar. You'll see the new menu (see right). Depending on the size of your photo, you can change the height of the header area, zoom into a particular section, and even shift the image horizontally or vertically. Just try it out, and click "apply" when you're happy.

We've got an example ready for you and more detailed information about the new header in our header help article. There's also a short video below the two example images that shows everything the header can do!

 

Enjoy!

    I'm not sure how that would work, it might not be possible. Have you been working with the personal/custom layout intensively? You could try to insert the header module...

    Can one have a different header for every page?
