    I am trying to add an image (company logo) to the header. Not exactly sure how to replace the current header with an image. Is there some type of child theme I can use?

    Here is the website: woodandmoredesign.com
    I would like to replace "Wood and More" and "your imagination brought to life" with the logo image.

    Theme I used: Sliding door theme

    Thank you in advance.

    My question is the same but in my case I am using the Creativix theme. There is an option under "Appearance - Header" in my dashboard to upload an image to replace the default image in the header, which I have done. No image i.e. default or the replacement image display on my website http://www.businessnetworkingafterhours.co.uk.

    Any ideas as to what I need to do to resolve this matter, please?

    @ryan
    i have built the child theme for your purpose.

    your child theme is here http://pastebin.com/1sBwnFWC

    I've commented that css file so you can do what ever you want.
    makesure that you go to your setting general and clear off the site caption.

    here is what i got by that child theme.. hope even you wanted the same

    @ki450751
    IMO these problems are not identical and better start a new thread.
    but i kinda figured your problem out..
    if you have a logo for your after business..(logo text) go to appearance> themes> creativix theme option and upload your logo there.
    hope this is what you wanted.

    Thanks FazBuzz

    Yes, have done that. I was referring to the option in dashboard/appearance/header.

    it's rude to start a new thread(before you say anything, no these problems are not identical) when someone's problem is being addressed
    please start a new thread and how are we supposed to solve your problem when we can't see where the problem is?( i mean give link for your website)

    @ki450..
    i'm no theme guru but I don't think that option works for creativix theme.. i strongly advise you to contact the theme developer for further questions.

    Cheers

    Thank you so much FazBuzzWP, for taking the time and getting the child theme code for me!

    Just one thing, its only showing on the front page, not on all the pages?

    Thanks again,

    I've also noticed that your logo is not a link. Why dont you make it a link? Are you using my child theme or created one which is your own?

    yea I noticed that too. I copy and pasted the child theme you told me about in my style.css

    that's not the correct way to create a child theme..if you want to i will create a video tutorial on it but i advise you to go through the codex for info on child themes

    -> nice site with a great header image slider!

    Would you mind telling me which header image slider are you using?

    Thanks!

    Hi hhtmp88

    Thanks. Just started creating the site so not fully developed yet. The header image slider comes as a part of Creativix theme.

    @ryanabi the child theme which i built is a sub standard one. i might solve the problem now but please don't think it's the final solution

    ryanabi,
    You did not state your theme. In Twenty Eleven theme you can go Appearence>Header menu and upload your own image.
    It did work for me, however I see a different problem here. It defaults to the image size 1000 × 288 pixels. When I try to upload 1000x120px, it stratches it to 288px height and crops the length. I changed 288px to 120px in all places in header.php, but it is still doing the same. I wonder if anyone figured out how to change the default featured image size in 2011 theme?
