Black-LetterHead Theme question

  1. Hi guys,

    I designed the Black-Letterhead theme. I should have checked this place sooner when my theme was added to WordPress.com a couple months ago. There's actually a simple solution to make header image clickable not just for the Blackletterhead theme, but for all themes with customizable headers, like Kubrick for example.

    Unfortunately, the fix involves editing header.php which WordPress.com will not allow anyone of us to do. Maybe, we can convince these guys to make a one line change in header.php.

    Just replace <div id="header"> with:

    <div id="header" onclick="location.href='<?php bloginfo('url');?>';" style="cursor:pointer;">

    This is a simple Javascript which makes the whole header div clickable. It actually works with or without the header images.

  2. Hmm wonder if they'll make the edit I'd love to go back to that theme, it was really nice looking. You did a good job with it!

  3. Thanks for the compliment. Maybe, they will make the change.

  4. ulysses - perhaps you can send that information to support yourself? While they do monitor the forums, they might not see your fix buried in this thread.

  5. ulysses,

    Thanks for the suggestion. It's safe to do without breaking existing sites so I've deployed the change.

  6. This issue is resolved. Tellyworth, thank you!

    I just validated with the Black-Letterhead and Kubrick themes. Both header images are now linked to Home. Now, we can happily find our way home. Nothing like home sweet home.

    Vivianpage,
    Thanks for the suggestion. Issue resolved.
