Lost Header

  • Hi Im very new to the Blogging world. I have only just installed WordPress last night and already I have made a mistake. I was changing the color background in the Header and before I knew it I some how wiped out the name and tag line. It is suppose to read Teresa’s Blog
    Where Comfort meets Luxury – Because You Deserve It Can someone please tell me how to get it back or how I can rewrite it.

    In responding to this please remember I am a newbie and technically challenged. 🙂

    If you meant you were editing the header.php file, and lost those codes.. here’s the codes to re-add again then..

    <h1><a href="<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>
    <div class="description"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div>

    Goes in between the:
    <div id="headerimg">

    </div>

    Good luck!

    Hi was away a couple of days from the computer. Just got your message.

    OK – lets see I copied what you wrote above, went to my blog and looked for the info to reinstall the code, but found it is already in there. I did not delete that. So maybe I am asking the wrong thing. All I wanted to orginally do was change the color behind my “Teresa’s Blog”. When I finished changing the colors I found that the words were all gone. I don’t know what I did, and I appreciate your trying to help me out. Is there something else I can try? I downloaded a different theme and it sits in a file on my harddrive. I figured I would just eliminate the template i orginally have, but you guessed it – I have no idea how to change to the new one. Maybe I should just leave all this interent stuff to the young people, cause I really feel foolish. I know I’m not up on all this technology, but I hate how this computer seems to be winning in the war on learning how to cope with it all.

    Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance
    Teresa

    Can we get a URL to the blog please? Also, you might want to paste your header.php file over here: http://wordpress.pastebin.ca

    Then, choose PHP for the content type. Then, hit submit.. and post the URL of the posted code back here for us please.. 😉
