[resolved] FYI Logo for all (11 posts)

    The logo upload option, rendering it in the conventional (proper) location on the top left, is not allowed unless you purchase the pro version. I tirelessly worked on this and was depressed at what I considered to be my own ineptitude. Alternatively, its just THEMEALLEY, not providing a clear instruction of why the logo won't work. What type of extortion is this? Do you want to trick people into the upgrade? Display some transparency with this, I would have gladly paid $55 for the logo upgrade had I been apprised of it at the appropriate juncture.
    Not when I am frustrated that <5 hours have vanished trying to make this work.

    Since it's offered on WordPress.org, it has GPL license. That means your able to alter in any way you want I believe. If not a mod will remove this.

    .site-title {
        background-image: url(LINK TO YOUR LOGO IMAGE);
        background-size: contain;
        background-repeat: no-repeat;
    }
    
    .site-branding h1 a {
        color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
        font-size: 70px;
    }

    funny, I got around it in about 15 minutes.. I take the same stance batharoy does - free to mod under GPL (not using it for commercial purposes). It also really irritated me that the author would resort to such a cheap trick to get people to upgrade; especially considering all the other incentives to do so. I was considering using a customized version on my actual business sites until I saw that.

    You can use it for commercial purposes too.

    Thanks @batharoy for posting that code, the first part really helped me out.

    But there appeared another problem. Now there is both, the logo and the written word. How can I move the written part some pixels or centimeters to the right, so that you can see both, the logo and the written word.

    I think that it isn't that difficult to move those letters to the right, but because I am not really good at coding, I hope that you can help me out.

    Thanks for all responses.

    You can try something like this.

    .site-branding {
        margin-left: 40px;
    }

    Thanks, but then the problem occurs that not just the written stuff, but the picture as well moves to the right. Is it possible that the logo stays where it is and just the word moves to the right?

    Thank you @batharoy for your help.

    .site-branding h1, .site-branding h2 {
        margin-left: 40px;
    }

    Pretty close. After a bit of tinkering I figured it out. You probably already got it, but hopefully this will help someone later.

    Put this in your child theme to prevent it from being deleted during the next update.

    .site-header-half-width-logo{
            background-image: url(http://customclouddatabase.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Custom-Cloud-Logo-cropped.png);
            background-size: contain;
            background-repeat: no-repeat;
    	width:100%;
    	margin:0;
    	float:left;

    My business website example using this theme:
