Need Help - Adding Logo doesnt work thru Theme Options Widget (8 posts)

    Hello,

    I am using The Point Theme. I am trying to change the logo from the standard text in the upper left corner for the name of my site and it is not working.

    Dashboard>Appearance>Theme Options>General Settings

    then it says:
    "Upload your logo (Recommended size 152x60px) using the Upload Button or insert image URL"

    I hit the "Browse" link and grabbed my logo that I created in my computer, it uploaded it to my Media Files but the logo up in the upper left corner has not changed at all.
    What am I missing here?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    This should work better for you.

    1. First upload the logo image in images folder of your theme.
    2. Open style.css in your theme and search for "#header #logo a {" tag. Once found add some new attributes

    background:url("images/FILENAME.PNG");
    width:152px;
    height:60px

    ;
    where FILENAME.PNG is the file name of your logo image, and the width and height should be equal to the size of your logo image.
    3. Lastly remove the current heading and tagline from your theme option. you can do this from the Customize section under Appearance.

    Let me know if you need anymore help with that.

    Liz,

    Thank You for that css changing advice but I am a little worried I will mess something up if I try to go in there and change code since I know absolutely nothing about that.

    Do you have any idea why that general settings simple browse your computer to add the picture in as your logo could not be working at all? I changed themes beause the last theme I had wasn't kosher by the WP standards so then I went to the WP site to grab a siter recommended by WP.org and I just don't understand why that easy option in that widget function doesn't work at all?

    Ok I think I found the header one.
    Not sure if this is the one but is this it?

    }
    #header {
    position: relative;
    width: 98.1%;
    float: left;
    padding: 0 0 0 2%;
    background: #F5F5F5;
    }

    Actually there are a bunch of spots with header and logo written in there... Sorry but I am kinda confused here now.

    .main-header {
    position: relative;
    margin: 0 auto;
    width: 100%;
    z-index: 99;
    max-width: 980px;
    float: none;
    display: block;
    min-height: 82px;
    }
    #header {
    position: relative;
    width: 98.1%;
    float: left;
    padding: 0 0 0 2%;
    background: #F5F5F5;
    }
    #header:after {
    content: "";
    position: absolute;
    width: 100%;
    height: 1px;
    background: #E2E2E2;
    bottom: 0px;
    left: 0;
    }
    #header h1, #header h2 {
    font-size: 42px;
    float: left;
    display: inline-block;
    line-height: 1;
    margin: 20px 0;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    }
    #header .image-logo { margin: 11px 0 }
    #logo a {
    float: left;
    color: #2A2A2A;
    font-weight: bold;
    }
    #logo a img { float: left }
    .widget-header {
    float: left;
    max-width: 77.7%;
    }

    I would put it under the font-weight: bold; like this:

    #logo a {
    float: left;
    color: #2A2A2A;
    font-weight: bold;
    background:url("images/FILENAME.PNG");
    width:152px;
    height:60px
    }

    Hey Liz,

    Thanks but I just tried that and replaced the FILENAME.PNG with the actual filename.png of my logo that has been uploaded to my media folder in my site and nothing changed. So I just took it out.

    Any other ideas maybe?
