Placing Image instead of page title leaving background (4 posts)

    I have spent two days reading on how to place an image instead of page title, however, I have found that this may or may not be prudent. I want to make a transparent image of only our name CSPT , yes I could just write in page font but I wanted to create the name in a cool font and make it cool looking instead of standard font. Being transparent it should go over the page background that is already there. Yet as I have read if I go an modify the header.php than when wp updates it will wipe out those changes and I have to make them again, if I add it only to css then if theme updates all i have to do is edit css which i can do quickly and easily , I am a layman at php. I also have heard that if I change the title to an image it may not display on all pages. My entire site is done in static pages, an acts only as a front page to a forum. So, could someone tell me if i can just modify the style.css and if i do will that apply across all pages. Site HERE< /a> or http://www.robbedofinnocence.com Theme is Law WordPress Theme 1 . For now i am choosing to just pick a cool font but the draw back there is not everyone is going to have that font on there computer. and it will default to the next in line. There just seems to many drawbacks to making a small change , it doesnt appear worth it. Is that true or is there an easy way. Also in this theme it doesnt use the standard language in the php or css like instead of #SiteTitle or h1 it uses things like art-logo or art.title.name etc. ANY HELP would be deeply appreciated.

    Forgot to add this here is the current css code

    h1.art-logo-name, h1.art-logo-name a, h1.art-logo-name a:link, h1.art-logo-name a:visited, h1.art-logo-name a:hover
    {
      font-family: Wingdings Regular, "Times New Roman", Times, Serif;
      font-weight: normal;
      font-size: 35px;
      text-decoration: none;
      padding: 0;
      margin: 0;
      color: #FB5B29 !important;
    }
    
    .art-logo-text
    {
      display: block;
      text-align: center;
    }

    You could use a Child Theme or for specific CSS changes, use a Custom CSS plugin.
    Either will allow you to make changes, update your theme and keep your changes.

    Cool Thank you, Do you know if all those things are true that I have read as I am new to wp
    - Changes made to header.php are wiped out if theme or wp updates
    kinda makes sence
    - That if I change stuff in header or footer it may not display on all
    pages.
    - That not all plugins are the same meaning is there a site where
    only tested plugins are listed?

    Many thanks ahead of time and thanks for the response
