    Maybe i’ve gone mad but i can’t see how to add an image logo in Genesis 1.9. The option for “dynamic text/image logo” is not in my theme settings anymore, so i can’t get the .header-image class to show up in my body.

    I know it’s past my bedtime and i should maybe look again with fresh eyes in the morning – but any help would be welcome as it’s bugging me!

    I checked one of our theme demos (Freelance) and the settings for image logo were still there. Which theme did you find that it disappeared for you? Have you tried deactivating all of your plugins to see if it’s a plugin conflict?

    If your theme supports a custom header, then this option is obsolete. Genesis 1.9 clears this up to force people to do it correctly.

    Normally i choose “image logo” and then set a background for .header-image #title a …. what is the preferred method now?

    The approach involves using a custom header. See Appearance->Header.

    What Travis pointed out is that if your theme has custom header support, the settings to select text or logo have been removed. For Freelance (the theme I checked), there’s no custom header support, so the option wasn’t disabled. To add custom header support, you’d add something like this to your child theme’s functions.php:

    [php]
    add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array( ‘width’ => 960, ‘height’ => 115 ) );
    [/php]

    The size parameters would vary by theme. Custom headers that match the exact size specified are easiest to implement because there’s no cropping. Just put your actual logo on the left side of the header.

    This change was poorly documented. You won’t find it anywhere in the release announcement for 1.9, but for existing customers with live sites to maintain, it’s an important issue.

    Bill thanks for the clarification. I have removed the custom header support and all is now good!

    Bill – wanted to add my thanks for your post.  That’s a huge deal for me and I was going to be confused and frustrated someday in the near future!

    Posh John – what version of Genesis were you running before updating to 1.9.*? Was it earlier than the previous release of 1.8.2? (That’s when the Header settings were made to hide when theme support for custom-header was present.)

    Bill,

    > This change was poorly documented. You won’t find it anywhere in the release announcement for 1.9, but for existing customers with live sites to maintain, it’s an important issue.

    If it’s the change I’m thinking of (hence my question above), this change was made in 1.8.2 – looks like it got missed from the official announcement, but it is (now) present on (my) http://genesischangelog.com/1.8.2

    The hiding of the Header setting when genesis-custom-header theme support is present has been since G 1.7.0.

    Hi Gary (thanks for reopening so i can answer)

    I was previously using 1.8.2, but since i start all my projects with a base child that i created i never noticed. I started this project with the included genesis-sample which had the header support line in, and didn’t think to remove it – now that i have done so, all is good.

    Thanks :-)

    Gary – On thinking about this more, unless Travis has an explanation for his comment that “Genesis 1.9 clears this up to force people to do it correctly” (ie, what changed in 1.9), I think you’re probably right that this change pre-dated 1.9 but no one noticed. I based my Twitter question on the combination of 2 things: 1) no one complained before 1.9 and 2) Travis’s comment.

    It’s more than likely that no one complained before because the change in previous versions affected such a small group: those with an older theme who made a custom modification to add header support, which is what Posh John did. On all of our installs of older themes that I checked, none had Posh John’s mod, so the dynamic text/logo setting was never removed.

    Thanks for the great work on your changelog. It’s so thorough and accurate that it is the first place to turn when a notice of a Genesis update appears. And being able to get it done with ambulance rides and a sick child is even more impressive. I hope child and family are ok, and life returns to normal quickly. Genesis 2.0 will be on us in a little bit :)

    My apologies. The comment for Genesis 1.9 was inaccurate as we did fix the Genesis custom header in 1.9, but the fix was related to a deprecated function, not the option. My apologies.

    Why is using a custom header “the right way” ? Lately I see quite a few people asking about inserting their logo. Somehow it does not seem intuitive to use a custom header (which is associated with a full size with) to insert a loge which is often only 300px wide.

    I have always just disabled the support for custom headers, also since I do not want clients to start playing with it… Will the logo/text method keep working or are there plans to remove it al together? Does anyone know?
