[resolved] Embed link with image? (6 posts)

    In a thread on another subject a few months ago, someone pointed out that that if one reads a single post page (for example http://virginiagenealogyblog.com/2009/02/07/experience-the-best-virginia-genealogy-teacher/) there isn't a way to get back to the home page http://virginiagenealogyblog.com/. Then he suggested embedding the header image in a href link to the home page.

    However, due to a lack of time, the thread died and I figure it's better to start a new thread anyway because it's a different subject.

    So, what I need to know now, is how I add a link to the header image. This is the WordPress Default theme by Michael Heilemann, the only difference is that I edited the kubrickheader.jpg image.

    You just need to modify the code in header.php file of the current active theme.:

    What line? And how? I know html but not php, so I'm not sure what to put where.

    Someone on a list suggested <h1>" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>
    would be named in your admin settings

    My problems:
    1) The siteurl IS in the admin settings. And in Appearance > Header Image & Color > Advanced, if I toggle the text display, the link works, however it overlays text over my header image which ruins things.
    2) Complicating things now, is that in trying to make that text transparent, I deleted the Upper Color (HEX) and Lower Color (HEX) and it really screwed things up. I've copied the hex numbers back (from another blog) and the text is back but my image is gone. I've taken a look and the correct kubrickheader.jpg is still there but it's no longer being shown. I even chose the classic theme for a bit, then reverted back, and still no luck.

    So now, it's a matter of 2) how do I get my image back, and 1) how do I make the text invisible?

    Another thought - Another solution would be to have the sidebar show up on the individual pages (such as http://virginiagenealogyblog.com/2009/02/01/50/). How do I get that to happen?

    I found the answer to "another thought" at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/202695 and it solved my problems.
