    I am a total rookie here so please be patient. I have been reading other posts on the forum about how to add a logo into a header and I cant seem to figure it out. Ive done what others have said and all I can see is the top of my log popping out from behind the posts. Can someone please give me step by step instructions on how to add this? Just let me know what you need from me.

    Thanks!

    Unless you provide a link to a page demonstrating the problem, no one will be able to offer much in the way of specific help.

    You need to start by reducing that image! You only have space for a 1003px by 212px header image.

    Edit style.css and change:

    #header {
        background: transparent;
        height: 212px;
        width: 100%;
    }

    to:

    #header {
        background: url(insert_full_url_to_final_image_here) no-repeat center top;
        height: 212px;
        width: 100%;
    }

    Looks pretty small I entered 1003 x 212 and it resized it to 274x212 when I uploaded it?

    You want the full size 1003 x 212 image - not a generated thumbnail. Can you upload the image to the theme's images folder using FTP?

    What resized the image to 274x212 - WordPress or your graphics software?

    Must have been wordpress, because even the original isnt the size I uploaded.

    WordPress doesn't resize any images. It only creates new smaller copies.

    I think the issue is the largest image I have is 792x612

    It's far too long. The max height you can have in that header is 212px.
