[resolved] Change duplicate H1 tags for single pages (Twenty Eleven theme) (2 posts)

    In the Twenty Eleven theme for the single page posts it has two H1 tags. It has the blog title in a H1 tag and it has the post title in a H1 tag. I am looking for a way to chage the h1 tag for the blog title on single post pages to something else (div or h2). I believe this would be done in the header.php and/or single.php. From what I read it is a matter of replacing some code. Does anybody know how to do tis properly?

    please do not edit Twenty Eleven directly but create a child theme http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes to work with.
    it is important to have an unedited default theme in case of serious problems. also, a child theme will help to keep any customisations when you next upgrade your wordpress version.

    the blog title is done in header.php of Twenty Eleven:

    <h1 id="site-title"><span><a href="<?php echo esc_url( home_url( '/' ) ); ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home"><?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?></a></span></h1>

    for how to have conditionally different html tags on the blog title, see for instance header.php or Twenty Ten:

    <?php $heading_tag = ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) ? 'h1' : 'div'; ?>
    				<<?php echo $heading_tag; ?> id="site-title">
    						<a href="<?php echo home_url( '/' ); ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home"><?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?></a>
    				</<?php echo $heading_tag; ?>>
