    okay so i haven’t been to my site in a good six months.

    the last time i went on i put ‘someone kicked over my sandbox. rebuilding fortress.’
    under the header link and i can’t seem to get rid of it. its driving me nuts!
    do you know where i can change it?

    ANOTHER THING

    i’ve been trying to look at past discussions to change the header to an image.
    i keep putting

    various things into my css custom css box but nothing seems to change.

    #logo h1 a {
    background:url(‘http://anandagabo.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/img_0256.jpg’) no-repeat top center;
    display:block;
    text-indent:-9000px;
    width:500px;
    height:200px;
    }

    or this too

    #header {
    background: url(“<?php bloginfo(‘stylesheet_directory’); ?>/images/wc_header.jpg”)
    no-repeat bottom center; }
    #headerimg {
    margin: 7px 9px 0;
    height: 192px;
    width: 740px; }

    this is driving me bananas.

    The blog I need help with is anandagabo.com.

    The “blog description” is under settings > general and is called the “tagline.” Change it there and then save the change.

    I’ll look at the header stuff in a moment.

    ah thank you so much!

    #682435

    First off, this

    url("<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/wc_header.jpg")

    cannot be used here. Upload the image to your media library, get the URL and then use that.

    Secondly, I would create #branding in your CSS and then put the image in there rather than into the site-title a . You will have to declare widths and heights for #branding and whatever other styling declarations you need or desire.

    oh! that was just the sample i put in.
    i uploaded the image to my media library and then put the url in there.
    i then pasted it into the sheet, and pressed preview.
    nothing seemed to show up.

    ah. sorry to ask you at such a time, but do you have any links on how to/ explains briefly about branding. im guessing its pretty basic. but i can’t seem to find an explanation on google that i find helpful.

    #branding is the ID assigned to the parent div in the header area in the markup (XHTML).

    What is the URL of your desired header image?
