Forgive me, I'm new to Wordpress and PHP. I want to insert a custom header image into the sliding door theme. I added the line

background: url('img/header.jpg') no-repeat bottom left;

to the #welcomeheading in the CSS file and the image will show in addition to the Wordpress header, but I cant' get the Wordpress header to not show without getting rid of the header altogether.

Thank you for your assistance.

<div id="welcomeheading">
<h1><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/blabla.png" height=”70″ width=”423″ border=”0″/>
</img></a></h1>
</div>

border="0" will work for it

where does the photo need to be in the files for the code to recognize it?

this line tells you:
Code: Select all
background: url('img/header.jpg') no-repeat bottom left;


it needs to be in the img directory and called header.jpg

Hi
I am quite new and I have been trying to place a logo on top of the header I have partially done it... (thanks to this post -
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1040&p=2896&hilit=add+logo+to+header&sid=83b9f85dd0e4e2c1a6e9934597c762c8#p2896)

However as you can see, it is still not quite right. I have tried to change the size of logo so that it doesn't leave me so much empty space or tried to remove all the space around the logo but nothing worked.
I am not sure how to fix it...
Could someone help me please?

thanks
Sabine

Ok, just to say that I solved it and I was also able to get rid of the problem I had with the logo on explorer - putting the height and width with 0px on the header sheet solved it.

There's mention of "welcomeheading," in the code. Where exactly are you guys finding this as I don't see it in the files?

Is that a piece of code being inserted into the CSS stylesheet?

And if the welcomeheading code needs to be inserted, where would this code go?

I am also not finding anything that resembles "welcomeheading" and also have not found "background: url('img/header.jpg') no-repeat bottom left;" as mentioned below by Wayne so I'm wondering if I am looking in the wrong place. Where do i find the location to paste in my image? so far i have gone into appearance in my wordpress dashboard and clicked on "editor" then clicked on "stylesheet (style.css)" and it is not there....I've painstakingly scrolled through 5 times. I've also looked under "header.php" but nothing.
Thanks!

I'm proud to tell you that I have found the ultimate 8-) way to change the header. Please visit my blog http://www.blog3d.dk/blog. If you like what you see and want to know how I did it, post a comment in the forum, and I will make a small tutorial. Give me a couple of days. ( The blog is at the time a template with a little content, but more will come. I have translated the theme into danish, so it will be wolapyk for most of you)
Best regards
Claus
