I go to: http://linguistics.okfn.org/wp-admin/themes.php?page=custom-header
I click 'choose file' and choose a file, and click upload.
It says 'Header updated. Visit your site to see how it looks.'.
What should be a header image is a blank space in the preview. On the
site it displays a broken link image. (I've left it up there so you
can see it.)
