    When you run into a wall, perhaps it’s a good idea to go in a different direction…

    Why not add this to your functions.php, somewhere after the define for the child theme near line 10:

    /** Add support for custom header */
    add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array(
    ‘width’     => 1600,
    ‘height’     => 48
    ) );

    Then, upload a custom header with your logo on the far left side.  It might take adding a few styling rules to the child theme’s CSS, but it gives you far more control to easily change your logo from within your WP dashboard.

    That is odd. Please paste your operating /* 03b – Header */ CSS code and I will look it over to learn what is happening.



    #title {
    background: url(files/2012/12/Bass-HookUps-Logo480.png) no-repeat;
    background-color: #faea85;
    height: 48px;
    width: 480px;
    line-height: 1;
    margin: 0;

    #title a {
    color: transparent;
    display: block;
    padding: 16px;
    padding: 1rem;



    @Bill, thx, I had BIG hopes for that. I’d much rather have the dashboard access to the header,.. but that didn’t work either. :-(



    Your path to the image is incorrect in the #title section.  Either upload the banner image to the images folder and modify your path to use the images folder of the theme, or change the path to something like –  url(wp-content/files/2012/12/Bass-HookUps-Logo480.png)



    You were correct,.. But, in a multi-site install, that’s where the images go.

    I tried it with the full URL, no transparency and it worked!
    Thx for the help!


    Hopefully the designer of the theme will read this,..
    I know this theme was originally designed to be a “deceptively simple design”,.. But it’s certainly NOT “most flexible theme”.

    I think it could be even better adding some additional flexibility/functionality

    1) Custom header option just like many other Genesis themes.
    2) Control over what content displays on the home page. Maybe this could be a widget area?
    3) Ability to turn off/on the GIANT big nav arrows.

    I’d do it myself, but have no idea how. ;-)
