Many of the free WordPress themes available take advantage of WordPress’ custom image header feature, introduced in version 2.1.0. The custom header image allows a site administrator to easily upload a custom image – a singing walrus, perhaps – to give the blog a personal, if blubbery, touch.

There’s only one problem: what happens if you don’t want the walrus? Leaving a blank custom header image in place may make your CSS behave strangely and your walrus to stink. This article, the first of Intertwine’s How-To series for programmers, will show you how to remove custom image headers using WordPress child themes the right way.
