It's working with a script changing header-pictures on "click arrow". I have used Javascript, but please inform us which codings can be used. (danish) Det virker fint med et javascript hvor der skiftes mellem headerbilleder ved klik på en pil. Men det ville være generelt godt, hvis pluginproducenter ikke blot skriver "coding" men fortæller hvilke kodesprog, der kan bruges.

When you need a simple Header / Footer solution that simply works and works simply - look nowhere else. I have used this plugin almost since it has been available on almost all WordPress sites - always works reliably and no hitches. Well DONE. I recommend it highly - by the way, I have been a developer for almost 40 years, helped create the .NET framework for Microsoft, and helped transition from ASP to ASP.net.
