    Hi, I’m trying to link my header image in the chateau theme to the homepage and just can’t figure out where exactly I have to change the header.php

    Here’s what my header.php currently looks like:

    <!– HEADER –>
    <div id=”header”>
    <div id=”menu”>
    <?php wp_nav_menu( array( ‘theme_location’ => ‘mainmenu’, ‘container’ => ”, ‘depth’ => ‘2’) ); ?>
    <div id=”mainTitle”>
    /” title=”« Return to <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?>’s Homepage”>
    <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?> <span>~ <?php bloginfo(‘description’); ?></span>

    <div id=”search”>
    <?php get_search_form(); ?>
    <div id=”mainImage”>
    if (!is_404() && !is_attachment()) {
    if (is_singular() && has_post_thumbnail($post->ID) && ($image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID), ‘post-thumbnail’) ) && $image[1] >= HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH) :
    echo get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, ‘post-thumbnail’ );
    else : ?>
    <img src=”<?php header_image(); ?>” width=”<?php echo HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH; ?>” height=”<?php echo HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT; ?>” alt=”<?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?>” title=”<?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?>” />
    <?php endif; } ?>

    Sorry for the messy layout, hope it is still readable!

    Can anybody help me?
    Thanks, Melanie

    PS: It’s for a blog I’m currently setting up.
