Yes there is a way to do that but please try to formulate proper English sentences. That is part of the forum posting guidelines after all.

Look in the template folder for a file called overall_header.tpl

ok, how do i replace it, just take any other image and save it as the old title and make it a .tpl filetype? also, how do i get an image like on top but to tile on the apsolute bottom and tiled infinitely like the last?

No, I imagine that the overall_header.tpl is a template file with code in it!

Look inside the .tpl file and find where it calls for the image you want to replace, and then change that to reflect the image you want instead.

Also, for your image tiling question, add this CSS to the element which the image is the background to:


(other options are repeat-y, repeat-both, and no-repeat)

(Go Here (http://www.w3schools.com/css/pr_background-repeat.asp) for more on background-repeat)

Could you elaborate a little?

(links/code) = GOOD
