    I'm not a programmer at all, but I have been put in charge of a class website. I'm trying to get a logo to the left of the site name. I was hoping that someone might be able to give me step-by-step instructions on how to do this CSS method? I don't even know what that means... I also don't know how to find the header.php... Thanks in advance for your patience!

    Hey mkeller4

    header.php is found when you login to WordPress, then go to Appearance the Editor. At the right hand side you will see a list of pages in your theme and header.php will be there.

    Click on that and you will see the code.

    However...

    If you're going to make changes to this file first of all copy and paste all the code in the window (you'll know what window when follow the instructions above), into a text document and save it so you have a back up.

    You should also have FTP access to the site if you're going to make changes to that file in case it goes horribly wrong.

    In saying all that, why don't you give us your web address so we can see the site and some more information about what you're trying to achieve

    Cheers
    Colin

    @mkeller4 - make sure that you are not modifying theme files directly - as those changes will be lost when the theme is updated. The recommended way to make changes is to use a child theme -

    Specifics may depend on the theme you are using.
