    I know this has been asked before and I've read soem of the responses but I get the feeling a lot of you are a bunch of geeks who want to show off the techiness and talk the lingo I just don't frigin get.

    Is there anyone that can explain step by step where the hell I place my logo? I've read and read and still not getting it.

    We aren't all IT savvy.

    Please.

    Insolence gets you everywhere!!! Yeah you.

    Now...

    What theme are you using?
    What is your blog address?
    Where would you like your logo to appear on the page?

    Specifics will get you the answer you need.

    If you are determined to maintain that you are not IT savvy there is not much point in using open source hack it yourself software. The hosted service might suit you more. But no one who knows the answer is going to answer your rude question. There are quite enough folk here who are grateful to be helped.

    I know I know, it's just so frustrating.

    WordPress Classic 1.5 by Dave Shea
    Blog address is http://www.londonhive.co.uk
    and I'd like the logo in the left upper corner of the page.

    Thanks

    Is it just me or this question was not resolved? I am new and I am learning to read the frequently asked questions and forums. Where is the answer to this question because I will also need it later on? Thanks.

    Patience, lad!

    Well, I tried. I thought I knew how but I can't get it to work. My php just ain't up to par, sorry.

    Hopefully a more experienced person on this forum can help you.

    You are using the classic theme so it shouldn't be too hard.

    I'll plug at it for a bit longer and see what I can come up with.

    Dissing the geeks is never good. Particularly not the Brits. They are a funny lot.

    Sounds like that's what you wanted the whole time.

    wow. Newbieness doesn't give you carte blanche to be a pissy jerk.

    There, I said it. :)

    This is not too hard if you know PhotoShop, HTML and understand CSS. If you do not, it would be very hard to explain. See my logo or changed head here

    For me, PhotoShop was the most important. You need to modify files at ... WordPress\wp-content\themes\default\images

    Start with your header. If you can leave that the same size and just paste in your logo, it will be much easier.

    Wow! You do have a sharp tongue (mrkingid). Way to run a business with so much cursing going around. No wonder much time is wasted insulting people and getting offended with those who are honestly discouraged. Keep it up. You shouldn’t be representing WordPress… This is sad. Thanks, kmessinger.

    rootcauses,

    I don't represent wordpress at all. No idea why you thought that.

    Being discouraged does not give you the right to be un-thankful, especially when I put over 2 hours in trying to help her. As for my remark, I think it sums her up pretty well, given her attitude in the first post.

    Glad you are at ZEN with yourself and can be so complacent in life.

    People need to learn that whilst wordpress itself is an easy system to use, writing your own theme requires patience and NON-WP specific knowledge i.e. a graphics editor, css, html.

    The support from people on the forum is generally top notch, but you do have to do some of the research yourself and if you don't currently have the base skills (CSS/HTML) learn them and then come back.

    Learn CSS from sites like this
    http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp
    Then WP theme writing will make a lot more sense.

    I'm pretty new to wordpress and still very much in learning mode. I know this is an old post but just in case somebody else with the same problem stumbles across this thread, I thought I would post this as a possible solution. Insert the following into the header:

    This of course presumes that you have loaded your image into the images folder within your theme. It worked for me and may help somebody else with the same problem.

    <a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/yourimage" border="0" alt="" /></a>
    That's what it should have been
