    Hi folks,

    Newbie to WPMU & BuddyPress here! I’ve finally got everything working just fine on my new social network (whew) but I’m having trouble replacing the site name text with a logo. I’ve tried everything I could find in the forums but I just can’t seem to get it. You can see from the source below (from the Home page) where I would like to change rSpace.org to my logo.

    <h1 id="logo"><a href="http://rspace.org" title="Home">rSpace.org</a></h1>

    Anyone have a simple solution for a CSS beginner?

    Thanks in advance!

    Try this:

    <a href="http://yoursite.url"><img src="http://yoursitelogo.png" title="Your site name" /></a>

    This should work ;)

    Thanks Bowe,

    But unfortunately, that’s not what I was looking for. As everything is called through the stylesheets, I’m looking for a way to replace rspace.org with my logo in the h1 header id in the CSS files. The problem is I really don’t know where and am unsure about the syntax.

    Anybody else?

    Something along these lines

    #logo {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    }

    #logo a {
    text-indent: -999em;
    background: url(../images/logo.gif) no-repeat;
    display: block;
    width: 328px;
    height: 79px;
    }

    Sorry did not read properly! I used David’s method for my admin bar logo, and that should REALLY do the trick ;)

    Thanks David,

    That’s exactly what I needed and it worked like a charm! You can see the result at rSpace.org

    Can anyone tell me what folder the <h1 id=”logo”> code is in for BP 1.2.3?

    @lightzok: It’s in the header.php template file.

    I have now found several folders with the <h1 id=”logo”> code, but that hasn’t helped me.

    I would like to add my logo image in place of the default text logo with my site’s url. So far, I am able to put my logo image in by modifying the screen.css file in the child theme. But, I don’t think this is right, since the default text logo is still there.

    Can anyone give me some direction as to what code I need to put in which file to substitute the logos?

    Thanks
