Replacing header text with image in twentyeleven theme? (9 posts)

    I'm using the TwentyEleven theme and would like to know how to replace the header text with an image. I already have uploaded an image to the header, but I would also like to eliminate the Site Title and Tagline from the header and replace it with another banner.

    I've already eliminated the search box in the header, but am wondering what to do next.

    Thank you much for any help! I'm not very accustomed to this but it's coming along. I appreciate any response that can help me. (Not looking to switch to child theme)

    Do you have a section in the dashboard named, "Custom CSS", "Custom Styles", or "Jetpack"?

    I have the Jetpack on my dashboard, but have not clicked the "connect to wordpress" yet. Should I do that? And, next step? Thank you!

    I'm not familiar with the steps of installing Jetpack, but when it is installed, use its Custom CSS section of the dashboard to hold this;

    header hgroup {
     display: none;
    }

    I will try that, thank you. And as far as displaying an image from my media library above the already existing header image? I have a second image, also 1000 x 288 pixels I'd like to place above the header image already there. Thanks!

    You'll need to make a Child Theme first. Have you a Child Theme?

    Ok, I should have time to sit and do it soon, thank you.

    Also, I am wondering where to copy and past this code to display my twitter and instagram icons to follow.

    <!-- AddThis Follow BEGIN -->
    <p>Boundless Social</p>
    <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style">


    </div>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="//s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=xa-5144938400cddb2c"></script>
    <!-- AddThis Follow END -->
