    Hi. I wanted to figure out how to put I custom logo I made on one of my websites, but can't figure out how in the Alexandria theme. I really need to find out how and any help will be appreciated. I am not too experienced, so please explain in detail.

    I will add the logo upload feature in next update, manually adding it is not advisable if you are not experienced.

    That's great :)
    However, I am curious. How would you do it manually?

    I had to go find Alexandria theme. Tricky proposition as Alexandria is a responsive theme and the best thing going for it IMHO :)

    Curious as to what size/dimensions your custom logo is and where you would like it to position in relation to the other header elements.

    I fooled around with the demo and added a background image. Notice how it changes based upon screen size:

    I wanted the logo to replace the "Theme Preview" part of the header. It would be around 125x500 pixels or wider, depending on the setup. Thanks again for the help.

    lite.css around line 325

    .logo {
    font: 60px/60px 'ChunkFiveRegular';
    background: url(http://cdn.overclock.net/4/46/500x1000px-LL-46a7aac8_Liquidsky_header.jpeg) no-repeat 0 0 transparent;
    height: 125px;
    }

    Add to the css, or better, create a child theme to hold your edits:

    .logo a {
    color: transparent;
    }
