    On that theme you can find your options for uploading your logo at

    (in admin on the left) Appearance > Theme Options

    It asks for the URL of your logo so you can upload your logo at

    media > Add New

    Then simply copy the url for the logo and paste it on the line that asks for it.

    Lets get this done first then we can discuss your menus

    Sorry for not making that clear – I want the logo AND the header title. I just want the logo to stand next to the header that says ‘Der Urmensch’, like at the same time. That’s why I created that space and shifted the header to the right 🙂



    Hmm you usually can do this without editing the code. I downloaded this theme when I saw your post so I will have look at it for you a little later. I am sure we can figure it out quite easily 😉



    is this what you are trying to do?

    YESS!!!!! HOW Did you do that? That’s awesome



    Well I am just fooling around with the css because I see the top shadow is bleeding onto it a bit but I think I will leave the fine tuning up to you.

    Now I may not do it this way normally but I did it in a way that I think you can easily emulate. You can do this right from your theme admin so you don’t have to fool around with the backend code. Also this won’t get overwritten when your theme updates.

    1) Appearance > Theme Options > Custom CSS
    2) Copy this code and paste it in there:

    #siteinfo {
    margin: 18px;
    height: 145px;
    float: left;
    padding: 3.6em 0 ;
    padding-top: 5px;
    overflow: hidden;

    3) I reduced this image for you to the proper size so go here and save this image to your computer.

    4) Upload the image to your wordpress media > add new

    5) Now simply change the url in step 2 to your file.

    Any problems let me know.

    Hope that helps



    As I said I never gave the CSS much thought other than to simply make it work so you may want to spend some time and fine tune it a bit.

    Thanks man, It worked. I really really appreciate it as I tried finding this out for days. I just hope I won’t have issues in the future when I type in something into custom css. Anyway….

    What about the next step, taking category names and changing them/adding them? I am just wondering if it something you can change in theme options (that i am not able to find) or if it is something I need to change in css.



    Ok sec first drop this in there and let me know when you have done it…

    #main-navigation .sf-menu li {
    margin-right: 5px;
    padding-top: 10px;

    boy that theme has no kind of padding from the left does it for the text I mean

    I see what you did. I was gonna do that too. I found out how to change the padding using fire bug. But yeah, I did.



    Yeah maybe add a bit more to that. Not to worry none of this will get overwritten and you can always edit it. If you get into any major edits I would create a child theme.

    I will look at your other issue in a minute I am just dealing with some other issues at the moment

    sure take your time. Im trying to figure this stuff out just need a foot in the door



    Check the menu is that what you want to do?

    You want to edit the top menu?

    Yep exactly.
    For example, when you look at and scroll down to the pic, this is the kind of page I wanted (eventually of course). But I didn’t know that it was such micromanagement. I was thinking you could add pages/categories and then go into the style sheets and change details if you wanted to.



    That is very simple and it is a built in WordPress feature. I just created a custom menu. That way I can link to whatever I want and I have complete control.

    Look at this Screenshot

    1) Go to: Appearance > Menus
    2) Then use: Links and put the URL to the page you want and Name it whatever you want
    3) Click ‘Add To Menu’
    4) Check off ‘Top Menu’ under ‘Menu Settings’
    5) Click: ‘Save Menu’

    and you are good to go my friend 😉

    I hope that helps
