How can I make the header image clickable with the BP default theme?

    I see two options:

    1) Use jQuery to dynamically make the `#header` clickable. If you’re using the bp-default theme, you’d have to take additional steps to omit other elements like the tab navigation and search bar from being clicked.

    2) Unhook the background-image that is added dynamically via inline CSS, rewrite your header.php template and add the header image manually with `` and then wrap an `` tag around that image so your header is clickable.

    I’d probably go with option 1.



    Thanks r-a-y.

    One of them things that should be easy… are there ANY websites where the logo/header doesn’t click to home (or somewhere at least).


    @gregfielding I am sure there are sites that do not have a clickable logo but that is usually an amateur mistake, logos should always link back to home. Maybe I am wrong but if my memory serves me correct if your using the default theme then it should already be clickable and direct to home. At least my logos are clickable I just can’t remember if a had to add custom code to make it happen. Good luck!




    The text is clickable, if you use that option. But if you upload a header image and disable the text, the image is not clickable.

    Seems like an oversight perhaps…


    @gregfielding if your using a child theme then wrap the code in the header that pulls the header image. Just make sure you do it dynamically using the proper tags.



    1 Year 5 Months later I see that this isn’t automatic with the BP default theme-

    I don’t believe that I’m missing something.

    Please can you guys at make this happen?

    Thank you
