    Hello,

    Child Theme: Genesis Sample

    I added the custom header to functions.php so I could add my logo. Once I did that… the default title and tagline has showed up directly under my image. Now, under Settings > Header >… I do not see “uncheck text under image” as some have suggested.

    Screenshot:

    I appreciate any help and time.

    Hi Michael, what you are seeing is actually the default Genesis logo image.

    However, it would seem that if you uploaded a custom header image, Genesis should replace its logo with yours. That’s how I would expect it to behave, but I’m new to GF and just learning the ins and outs myself.

    Until you get a response from GF support here, you can use this custom css to hide the Genesis default logo:

    <style>.header-image .site-header .wrap {background:none;}</style>

    Or, a better option than that, would simply be to rename your header image to “logo.png” and upload it to overwrite the default Genesis logo located here:

    themes/genesis-sample/images/logo.png

    After a bit more research, here’s the skinny on what’s happening.

    When you enable “Custom Header” support, GF assumes that the image you are uploading is going to be a background image for the header area. The reason I say this is because it attaches this image to the parent container (the “header” element) of the default logo image (logo.png). The logo.png element is attached to the background of the header .wrap element, so that allows it to float on top of the header graphic.

    So, its possible to have a background image in the header as well as a logo which may overlay it.

    What appears to be missing from the framework, is an easy way to replace the default logo.png image without leaving the WordPress admin. Until/if that’s added, FTP is your best bet in that regard.

    Thanks Scott.

    I see where you are going. I was thinking along the similar lines but not getting it to jive out.

    Here is what I tried tonight.

    • I deleted the logo.png out of genesis & genesis sample.
    • That removed the genesis default logo but my logo was still bumped up. (genesis sample child)
    • The “header” image was still pushed up above the default logo area.
    • I deleted the “header” image from inside the dashboard and it defaulted back to the text based site title.

    Tried to remove the action of “adding a custom header” all together and going with that simple replace logo.png in theme and that didn’t trigger it to use logo verse text.

    hrmm…

    First, you need to make sure you have “Image Logo”, selected in the theme options at:

    Genesis > Theme Settings > Header

    Next, you need to rename your logo image “logo.png”, then upload it via FTP to the “images” directory of the child theme (where you deleted the old logo.png)

    I don’t have that in my theme options: no theme logo options in settings

    If you don’t see the option it means that your theme’s functions.php has the custom header enabled. You will need to disable that in order to get the Genesis default header options back.

    You are looking for this line in your functions.php

    add_theme_support( 'custom-header', $args);

    You need to remove that or comment it out

    //*add_theme_support( 'custom-header', $args);

    Bomb.com sir!

    Looks like in my checking back and fourth… I didn’t go back to check if it should up! I appreciate your kindness in helping!

    Now off to resize the image some more :).

    Here is another one, when you look at the site on your phone, the responsive version still shows that default logo. Any suggest on that one?

    I am using an awesome plug-in, Dynamic Header, that allows you to have different headers for each page. I did everything explained above, but the default image logo still shows up. I have no idea how to get rid of it.

    I would prefer to use the Dynamic Header plug-in so that I can have different image headers on each page. Please help!!!

    my site is http://www.mrsceo.com

    this was the article I followed to set up the Dynamic Header. http://hypertransitory.com/blog/2011/10/28/wordpress-dynamic-headers-with-your-genesis-theme/
