Help Adding a Widget Area to Genesis Magazine Child Theme Header (4 posts)

    Good Evening,

    I'm attempting to customize the Genesis Magazine Child Theme. Having never worked with the Genesis framework before, I'm finding this quite challenging. The test site is located here:

    What I'm trying to do is add a widget to the top left corner to house the logo. I'm using a widget because there will be 4 logos, one for each season, and I thought this would be an easy way for the user to change them.

    Here's what I've done.
    1. duplicated lib/structure/header.php from the genesis folder and placed into the magazine folder. (I assumed I had to keep this same structure)
    2. I changed line 847-851 to:

    function genesis_do_header() {
    	echo '<div id="title-area">';
    	dynamic_sidebar( 'logo' );
    	echo '</div><!-- end #title-area -->';

    3. I added to functions.php:

    genesis_register_sidebar( array(
    	'id'				=> 'logo',
    	'name'			=> __( 'logo', 'magazine' ),
    	'description'	=> __( 'This is the logo.', 'magazine' ),
    ) );

    I'm sure I've done something wrong, any insight would be appreciated.

    You can contact StudioPress for queries regarding their themes.

    Thank you for your suggestion, but I don't have an account with Studiopress. I am customizing a theme for an existing site that was built on the Genesis Framework, not a new install.

    Unfortunately, these forums don't support commercial themes, partly because we don't have access to the theme code, etc. Some of us here probably know less than you do :)!
