In Header file I have added

while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();  ?>
<img src='banner.jpg' />
<?php }  ?>

` But in Search page the banner is loop equal to number of results. How can i avoid this. I want to show banner just one time in search page

You have the header inside the Loop, so of course it prints once for each result. Put that outside the Loop proper.

if (have_posts()) { ?>
  <img src='banner.jpg' /><?php
  while ( have_posts() ) {
    // print contents

Also, don't use relative URLs in WordPress. You are in for all kinds of headache if you try.

  • Is have->posts() a thing or do you mean have_posts() ? :)
