No logo without upgrade? (6 posts)

    Hi

    I think you theme is great, but I find it astonishing that to add a custom logo, one must upgrade or have I overseen something?
    I do not remember seeing such a limitation so far ...

    Regards

    This is the great bane, a most negative feature, of many WP offerings, whereby themes are offered without the option to insert the logo of the individual or collective publishing a website. Having migrated recently from other CMS platforms, we find this restriction actually makes useless (for us at least) many of the 'favourite' themes offered by WordPress community.

    Easily fixed with a bit of tweaking to the PHP code ;)

    Open up header.php in the destro theme folder (make a backup copy first) then look for the lines relating to the logo...

    <div id="logo">
                                    <p class="logo_title"><a href="<?php echo esc_url( home_url( '/' ) ); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></p>
                                    <p class="logo_desc"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></p>
                                </div>

    and replace instead with

    <div id="logo">
                                    <p class="logo_title"><a href="<?php echo esc_url( home_url( '/' ) ); ?>"><img src="<?php echo get_stylesheet_directory_uri(); ?>/images/logo.gif" alt="Header logo" /></a></p>
                                </div>

    Place the logo file in the theme's images folder and tweak the CSS using Firebug if you want it aligned differently to the default setting (left)

    Enjoy!

    Genius Idea!

    Thanks.

    What would be really sweet though, is if you could switch between the two.

    May have to look and see if I can shoehorn that into the option page somewhere.

    gshaw0,

    I've followed your suggestion here, as I have a similar issue. I can see the image but I don't know how center it by tweaking the CSS in Firebug. Also, the image appears smaller than the proscribed 1200 x 500 and I don't know how to fix that.

    I created my own thread regarding the issue.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Nevermind. Right after I posted this I figured it out. In case anyone finds themself in the same position this might help. Use Firebug for Editing WordPress Themes
