    Hello :)

    How can I make my header active, so that people can click on it and return to the start of the blog?

    Thanks, Denice

    The blog I need help with is arunningmama.wordpress.com.

    This can be done in various ways. I think the easiest way is to take advantage of the blog title, since it’s already a link to your homepage and already in the right area. So first go to Appearance > Header, check the option “Show header text with your image”, click Save Changes.

    Hi Justpi,
    that doesn’t work since I don’t have a blog title, only the header image. Any other suggestion?
    Thanks a lot, Denice

    When you don’t want the title to show in the header area, the right thing to do is hide it by unchecking the option I mentioned above. Having no title at all is extremely bad for search engines. So first go to Settings > General, enter a title in the Site Title field, save changes (and don’t uncheck the option in Appearance > Header); then I can turn it into what you’re looking for.

    Thanks for your reply… But I still don’t know how to make my header active without having to activate my blog title? :) Thanks, Denice

    Repeating: go to Settings > General and enter a title in the Site Title field so I can turn it into what you’re looking for. You won’t see the title after I give you the right CSS.

    Sorry for being a bit slow. I’ve done as instructed and would be very happy to have the CSS code :)

    Thanks, Denice

    Er, you added the title but then you went to Appearance > Header and hid it. So we’re back to square one: go to Appearance > Header, check the option “Show header text with your image”, click Save Changes.
    (I’m online now, so don’t worry, your title will only be visible for a few minutes.)

    Add this in the CSS editor:

    .site-title a {
        display: block;
        font-size: 0;
        height: 195px;
        left: 93px;
        position: absolute;
        top: 59px;
        width: 430px;
    }

    This will create a link over the visible part of your image only. Would you prefer a full-width one?
