    Once you’ve modified a theme, you can make it available to a limited number of sites. First, modify its title info in its style.css (so you can identify it), then upload it into its own folder in the themes directory. Don’t enable it site-wide, though, in SuperAdmin / Themes. Instead use SuperAdmin / Sites to edit the site, and check the box to allow it to use the modified theme.

    I would hack the theme to use the custom header option if it were me. If you’re making a new copy of the theme for every.single.user. that will not scale.

    in other words, fine for a handful, a nightmare for a hundred.

    It’s a quick job; find a dev & pay them. 😀

    yeah…my thoughts, too. I may have hundreds of sites, so I need to do it the scalable way.

    I’ll try to figure it out on my own (I like a challenge!), and if I can’t figure it out, hand it off to a real pro 😉

    Thanks!

    You could hit up people on the Elegant themes forums. (You did pay for support there. 😉 ) Chances are, someone there has done it already.

    Cool…I’ll check that out.

    I have checked around and posted in their forums. There seem to be a lot of Multisite questions over there right now, but not as many answers as we’d like 😉

    hmmm…I tried adding that code to functions.php, and got this error message:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/resumes/public_html/isforhire.net/wp-content/themes/MyResume/functions.php on line 50

    This is all that’s on line 50: #header{

    There seem to be a lot of Multisite questions over there right now, but not as many answers as we’d like 😉

    Is that a hint to go look? 😉

    Parse error is a typo in your code.

    Nope, not at all. As you said, we paid for the support…..

    All of their themes have this hardcoded logo issue, and most (or all) use timthumb, so there are issue.

    I did find someone who hacked the header option into the options menu. For anyone else using Elegant Themes, the code is here:

    http://www.elegantthemes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=17352&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=epanel+header

    This was for a different theme, so my alignment is still a bit off, but I’m almost there: http://alexandramabardi.isforhire.net/

    (I asked because I’m a member there as well, but I don’t really visit the forums.)

    I’m sure you’d be welcomed with open arms!

    Good news…I have this logo issue 100% working. Now onto timthumb! I’ve seen your tutorial on that issue, so I should be covered. 😉

    Thanks again for your help, Andrea.
