Problem with my own svgs to my own theme
I implemented my own theme and it works fine! But the only problem really is i have some svgs.. It's giving sign that the svgs should be there cause there is alt text but the svg doesn't show.. What to do?
Code here: <?php get_header(); ?>
<div class="banner"> <img class="logo" src="city-logo.svg" alt="City"> <h1 class="headline">We're making your website or app dream come true</h1> <span class="tagline">For a fair price.</span> </div><!--/.banner-->
and <figure> <img class="icon-location" src="location.svg" alt="Location"> <img class="feat-img" src="treats.svg" alt="Drinks and eats"> <figcaption> <h4>We are now also making JAVA apps!</h4> A web language also used to make google, facebook etc. </figcaption> </figure>

Well first I think you should consider making the svgs inline. Its better for a lot of reasons and also saves http requests. But thats another topic.
The issue is your not calling the right file path I think. Try this it should work assuming you have an SVG folder in your theme where your storing the svgs.
<div class="banner"> <img class="logo" src="<?php echo get_template_directory() . '/svg/city-logo.svg'; ?>" alt="City"> <h1 class="headline">We're making your website or app dream come true</h1> <span class="tagline">For a fair price.</span> </div><!--/.banner-->
( untested but should work )
