    Hey everyone,

    I am using the current "decayed-wordpress-theme" . I have searched and found a few posts on what to edit in the header and style file, but none helped me. I was able to get the correct size, but logo never appeared instead i had the " ;? " appear.

    anyhow this is what my header file looks like right now (default) :

    [code blocks removed - please use http://wordpress.pastebin.com as per the forum guidlines]
    could someone please point me in the right direction on how to replace the site title text, with a logo image?

    thank you kindly!

    Replace this:

    <h1 id="site-title"><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>

    with

    <h1 id="site-title"><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/"><img name="logo" src="../images/logo.jpg" width="100" height="32" alt="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>"></a></h1>

    width and height needs to match the size of your logo and ../images with the source where this logo was uploaded.

    ok, simple

    <img name="logo" width="392" height="262" alt="" src="imag/logo.gif"/>

    your logo.gif doesn't lead anywhere. It should be like:

    <h1 id="site-title"><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/"><img name="logo" src="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/images/logo.jpg" width="100" height="32" alt="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>"></a></h1>

    Just make sure that you know the link where the logo is uploaded.

    oh ok..

    still a no go ? I even typed in the full path to the logo.gif.

    <h1 id="site-title"><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/"><img name="logo" src="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>http://www.virolent.tv/wp-content/themes/decayed-wordpress-theme/img/logo.gif" width="100" height="32" alt="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>"></a></h1>

    I am sorry if it seems so simple, and i am missing it.. I do kindly thank you to take the time to help me out with this.

    try this:

    <h1 id="site-title"><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/"><img name="logo" src="http://www.virolent.tv/wp-content/themes/decayed-wordpress-theme/img/logo.gif" width="100" height="32" alt="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>"></a></h1>

    you had <?php bloginfo('url'); ?> which is actually http://www.virolent.tv that part was not needed, but go with above code and it will work.
