Using an image/logo in the header

How to configure the header.php and css to display an image like a logo in place of the site title?

2 Answers

It can be accomplished in two different ways:

  1. Sometimes the theme you are working with an in the its user interface you might find an option telling you to upload the logo to use it instead of the title.

  2. If not then you can go to the header.php and you simply can add your logo using the wordpress relative url such as :

<img src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/mylogo.gif"  width="120" height="120" border="0" alt="SiteName" />

Hi Omar,

Thanks for the information. I will give it a try. Also, do you happen to know how to code the theme to allow for a logo in place of the title? Like you mentioned, some themes have that option. I would like to hard code it into the theme.

You are more than welcome, yes sure the code I just added for you you can use it in the header.php and you hard-coded it there the way you want.
