  • Oh, the website is SideDishesOnline.com in case you want to see it. This is not a cheap shot at hits. In fact, I wish no one would even SEE the site until I get it fixed.

    Unless you provide a link to a page demonstrating the problem, no one will be able to offer much in the way of assistance.

    How did you add this logo? Right now it’s not pointint to any image – just to http://chuckmall.com/wp-content/

    I just uploaded a new image of the logo

    How did you add the image to your theme? Is there an option in the theme to upload a custom logo image?

    On the admin options, I went to Appearance/Header/Select Image and just uploaded the image. But somewhere else in an editor there must be a link. I wouldn’t even mind having NO link that image. I just can’t find out to get it out.

    You’ve already uploaded a header image: http://chuckmall.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/final-logo.jpg

    You can’t upload a second image to the same area using the same upload process.

    That was the one. There is only one. I deleted the 2012 logo out of the library.

    You’ve added some kind of markup to the header of the theme, yes?

    Not knowingly. It could be part of the Simply Works template? Jason Huber, creator of that, tweeted me: “Looks like you have an incorrect path in the image setting and the alt tag text is showing.” Looks like it to me too–but don’t know how to fix.

    This line is in the theme options (assets/swc_theme_options.php)

    // Logo image – No HTML tags – Just image path

    Would deleting that fix it?

    Here’s a new summary:
    Since I uploaded a new custom logo (which my theme has as an option) a link–and a broken link image–floats over the logo image. I want to remove this, which appears to be some type of markup in the header.

    I use Simply Works Core and Akismet. I went into the Editor and removed this from the header:

    alt=”<?php esc_attr(strip_tags(bloginfo(‘name’))); ?>”

    That didn’t do it, but strangely, the broken link image was smaller.
    It looks like I need to go into Appearance/Editor/Header, but I can’t figure out which line of HTML to cut. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    right now it looks like you have a broken/unclosed img tag;
    which also shows in the validation report: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fchuckmall.com%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

    please post the full code of header.php (how-to: http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Posting_Code )

    Must be this one?
    Line 44, Column 126: unclosed start-tag requires SHORTTAG YES
    …=”http://chuckmall.com”><img src=”http://chuckmall.com/wp-content/” </div>

    The construct <foo<bar> is valid in HTML (it is an example of the rather obscure “Shorttags” feature) but its use is not recommended. In most cases, this is a typo that you will want to fix. If you really want to use shorttags, be aware that they are not well implemented by browsers.
