trying to add my logo to a wordpress theme

I am trying my best to add my company logo, to a new installation of wordpress.

The blog is at blog.viprecycling.com

I have the logo uploaded, and I have added this CSS code to style.css in the themes folder for the theme I have installed.

I have followed the instructions to the T, but all I am getting is the name of the site to show up?


Find the text
Start EXAMPLE CODE for an image logo (line 224)
Delete /* before
#logo, (line 225)
Delete */ (line 230) after
.description (line 229)
Find logo.png (line 228) and replace it with the name of your logo.
Change the height and width to fit your logo (line 226)
#logo, #logo a { display: block; height: 19px; width: 87px; }
Find the text
Start EXAMPLE CODE for a text logo (line 234)
Add /* before
#branding (line 235)
Add */ (line 239) after
#logo, .description { color: #868F98; float: left; margin: 17px 0 0 10px; } (line 238)
Save your changes and upload the file style.css to your themes folder.

The instructions are:
  • Start EXAMPLE CODE for an image logo (line 224)
  • Delete /* before
    #logo, (line 225)
  • Delete */ (line 230) after
    .description (line 229)
  • Find logo.png (line 228) and replace it with the name of your logo.
  • Change the height and width to fit your logo (line 226)
    #logo, #logo a { display: block; height: 19px; width: 87px; }
  • Find the text
    Start EXAMPLE CODE for a text logo (line 234)
  • Add /* before
    #branding (line 235)
  • Add */ (line 239) after
    #logo, .description { color: #868F98; float: left; margin: 17px 0 0 10px; } (line 238)
  • Save your changes and upload the file style.css to your themes folder.

Should just be a matter of replacing logo.png with your logo. Rename your logo "logo.png", upload it, overwrite the existing, and refresh your browser cache. Should be good to go.

I knew I forgot to add something to the original post last night.

I did that.

The proper logo is uploaded, and renamed, and the coding for the text logo is commented out.

The coding and everything is how a lot of people on different forums said to do, with this particular theme, but not understanding why it is only showing the name, but no logo.

I got it to work....http://blog.viprecycling.com

Or at least it is displaying the logo for me lol.

I figured since wordpress has plugins for everything, they might have one for a logo, and I was right.

I used a plugin called "Theme Logo"

I imputed the url for the location of the logo.

Then, I went into header, using dreamweaver, did a search for "logo" and edited that entire line with this html code:

<a href="http://www.domain.com" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://www.domain.com/locationofimage" alt="HTML tutorial" width="40" height="40">
From there I played with the width and height numbers till the logo looked good on the site.

NOTE: The html code the plugin gives you, did NOT work for me.

Yep...looks good to me too! You shouldn't need a plugin to do that, but such is the magic of Wordpress. :)

for future reference, there are a couple ways to replace the logo. you can upload it directly to the media upload area and call the file in the css where it calls the default one, or replace the default one in the image directory and mod the css accordingly.

I was trying to figure out why the wordpress admin options that display at the top, once you login and are viewing the blog, was not displaying.

So, I took down the template and re installed it. Found out the issue, but since the footer looked beyond ugly, I re deleted the code for it.

Is there a way to edit the footer and NOT have it mess up the header, so that the admincp options appear at the top when viewing the blog being logged in?

I need a little help with the logo.

Since I deleted and re installed the template, I had to re add the html code. I have used the same code as before, but now the logo is wanting to be right on or in the middle, or below the green menu bar. How can I make it go higher?

http://blog.viprecycling.com

PS. I Got it. I keep forgetting about using Google (when you get frustrated, it is way to easy to forget simple things in life lol)

Anyways, for anyone who is having the issue with the logo. Go into style.css and search for "logo" and edit the "top" value.

You edit the footer file either in dreamweaver, like I do, or you use a free program like notepad++

Okay,

I am racking my brain to figure out how to edit the footer here http://blog.viprecycling.com so that the ugly footer at the bottom (menu bar, etc) is gone, and just my copyright information is left?

If I did the tiny code in the footer file, it messes up the header.php file, so that the wordpress admin options wont appear when viewing the site logged in.

It should be as simple as removing a div, could you post your footer code here?

Thanks!

Is that for your wordpress theme or for the main directory footer? I think that's your main directory's footer.
