    Hi,

    I am trying to figure out if there is a way to make the logo portion of my header image on the left side of my top menu a link that takes the visitor to the home page, so I can eliminate the “Home” tab in the menu.

    Here is a link to my site http://www.westminsterav.com. I would like the “Westminster Technologies, Inc.” area to be a clickable link.

    Is this possible? Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Hello, Try accesing your Settings then General, you can add your web address in that section and is should make your header clickable.

    My site appears in the “WordPress Address” and “Site Address” fields on the settings page, but the logo area of the header is still not a hyperlink.

    Do you have any other suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Try going in to your Style.css locate this part of your header image code, change the width: 25% to width: 250% pixels and see if that will work. If not just change it back to 25…..

    [php]/* Image Header – Partial Width
    ———————————————————— */

    .header-image #title-area,
    .header-image #title,
    .header-image #title a {
    display: block;
    float: left;
    height: 100px;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding: 0;
    text-indent: -9999px;
    width: 25%;[/php]

    In your general settings you should have the following fields were you can add your web address.

    WordPress Address (URL) http://www.yoursite.com
    Site Address (URL) http://www.yoursite.com

    Make sure you place your URL for your website there nd see if that works. It’s hard for me to say because I don’t use that theme but this might work. Them just save all changes.

    Yep, I checked there and my URL is in both fields the same was – http://www.westminsterav.com.

    I am worried that this isn’t possible. I did a plug-in search and didn’t find much…

    The proper way to add a logo image in lieu of the Site Title & Description is here. You also have to comment-out or delete the following from your functions.php file.

    /** Add support for custom header */
    add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array(
    ‘width’ => 1140,
    ‘height’ => 100
    ) );

    Then you should be able to make it a link.

    Hi Doak,

    So after changing the functions.php file, what do I need to do to make the logo a hyperlink? Forgive me if this is a simple question as I am new to WordPress.

    Thanks!

    There is no stupid questions. You probably have modify the #title-area & #header .widget area selector ‘width’ to incorporate ( fit ) your logo. Use ( do you use ) ‘Firebug?’

    Then go here for your link. Thanks to Brian Gardner.
