Adding a logo to WordPress (6 posts)

    Hi there,

    I have justed set up my WordPress blog. I would like to add a logo to the header but the help section in WordPress is not making a lot of sense.

    I am using the WordPress Default 1.5 by Michael Heileman (based on Kubrick) theme. The help section states that I need to find the header.php file. Where do I find this? Do I need to go into my file manager to find it? I have looked and can not find it in there.

    I would have thought that I would be able to ammend the header file in "Presentaion" and Theme Editor but it is not there. The only file that is there is style.css, but there does not seem to be any option to change that. I can ammend it, but there is no save button anywhere so no way to save the changes.

    Please help!

    Thanks Yosemitte.

    I've found the header.php file and changed it to reflect the image that I want to use, but it doesn't work!

    I have moved the impage I want into:
    wp-content/themes/default/images. I have called it "personalheader.img"

    According to the instructions in the header.php file, that is all I need to do. But that didn't do anything, so I have changed the following

    Was:
    #header { background: url("<?php bloginfo('stylessheet_directory'); ?>/images/kubrick.jpg") no-repeat bottom center; }

    Now:
    #header { background: url("<?php bloginfo('stylessheet_directory'); ?>/images/personalheader.jpg") no-repeat bottom center; }

    But that doesn't do anything either. Any ideas?

    I have called it "personalheader.img"

    Hmm... I don't think that's a good idea. It should be .jpg or .png or .gif - and the code should refer to it accordingly.

    Sorry, yes it is .jpg. I made a mistake by typing in .img.

    I have just checked the header.php and it is personalheader.jpg, so that is not the problem..
