Re: Custom logo in Buddypress 1.1
IMO this is a theme design decision; if you want a graphic logo on your site, then that’s a custom theme. The bundled theme is just a starting point, even if you only re-do the colours. I’m even going to go so far to say if you want a graphic rather than a text header, you are very likely to want to change some other aspect of the site design at some point; so you’d be creating a child theme for that anyway. I can’t see people *only* wanting to change the site title to a graphic being a very common situation.
In previous versions, we used to get a lot of questions about which file to replace for the graphic, and ‘what font was used/can I have the PSD file for it’, and all the issues that both of these entail.
