Basic Question: Image LInks in Child Themes
Please forgive the basic question but I'm evaluating Genesis and I'm trying to figure some things out ahead of time. I did read the basic guide from the support section, but I plan to create custom themes (or at least try to) so that's why I have the question.
I was watching a video tutorial (not on this site) about customizing a genesis child theme. In order to insert the logo for the site, the tutorial added the logo as a background image using css. In the past when I have coded by hand, I've always put the image in as an <img> tag in the XHTML, etc. and then styled it or controlled it via CSS.
So when you are using genesis, are you customizing the XHTML or just the CSS? Because when the example added the logo as a background image, that takes away the ability to make the logo image "clickable" for example, and makes you unable to do things like add ALT tags.
What am I missing?
The header is clickable and doesn't need alt tags because the title and site description are still being used. However, some users prefer to change how this works and it is possible to change it to use <img> tags instead of a background image.
Thanks. Is there a "one-stop" in depth resource on how to go from a PSD to a custom genesis theme starting with the basic genesis child theme? I did read the intro guide as I said above but I want to be able to see the whole process from start to finish to make sure I can make it work. I looked on amazon as in the past I read a book on custom wordpress themes. I just want to understand the scope and not have to bounce around the Internet and support forums here for every question. Naturally I expect to hit roadblocks and I will ask support questions, but I don't want people to have to re-invent the wheel.
Does your tutorial series in your signature cover that process?
Thank you again for all of your help.
Honestly I'm not aware of any step by step PSD to Genesis resources out there. I'm not even aware of anything that roughly covers the basics. I have a pretty in depth series explaining the ins and outs of Genesis but not really a how to.
