Adding top left image to WordPress site.. (4 posts)

    Would

    "header.php"

    be where I could add some code in order to place a logo at the top left of the page? I'm looking at doing some simple HTML code to just insert an image into the upper-left hand corner of the website which would just serve as the site's logo for all of the pages on the website.

    Could I grab one of the themes from this page:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/

    and insert a piece of code into header.php like that, that would simply be an "Insert Image" piece of HTML code, and have it link to the homepage, and just serve as a logo that'd be there at the top left of every page?

    in principle - yes

    once you have decided which theme to use, please post back here with a link to your site.

    you might need to use the absolute path to the image.

    Actually, for this particular site, I am considering just using the default WordPress 2011 theme, and just changing out some of those banner images and stuff:

    So, yeah, that's the theme I'd like to use. Where could I insert that "Insert IMG" HTML code to stick it in the top left corner, there?

    This is what I want to add:

    <a href="http://www.ktravisj.com/media4change/wordpress/">
    <img border="0" alt="Media4Change" src="http://ktravisj.com/media4change/media4changelogo.png"/>

    So I'm trying to jam it into various spots, in the Editor at (from the WordPress admin panel)

    Appearance >> Editor >> Header.php

    But am not having very much luck finding the right spot for it..
