Logo and contact form help.
If you look here, http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/ , you will see that the “input” tag is not allowed at wordpress.COM. You will have to use the contact form that they provide.
The theme you are using, monochrome, does not have a custom header feature. To add a logo/header to the top of the theme, you would have to have CSS editing experience and the paid CSS upgrade.
You can upload an image/logo just like you would any other image, and then put it into an image widget at the top of the sidebar.
And now for a couple suggestions.
1. You need to optimize your images in your posts so that they are around 50k or less each in file size. For those with slower connections such as myself, your main blog page loads way too slowly, and I would not wait for it to load. I would simply hit the back button on my browser and head off somewhere else unless you had something REALLY compelling I wanted to see. Right now all your images on the main page are nearly 900k in flle size each.
2. Your blog has no title, and search engines do not like that and you will lose ranking because of that. You really need to have a title and also a tagline entered at settings > general in your dashboard.
Also on the form code, note that the form tags are not allowed either. As stated in the referenced link, this is all due to security concerns.
Damn which theme allows having logo with buying the CSS Upgrade.
Go to appearance > themes, click the “feature filter” link to the right of the search box at the top, and click “custom header and then click filter and it will bring up all themes here that have a custom header feature.
Check out this list of themes that allow custom header images. It should help you pick one so you don’t have to pay for the custom CSS upgrade.
I am using http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/ the contact-form shortceode, it is excellent. I dont find any cause to not use it. Also for your blog logo you can set a blavatar, or as thesacredpath told use a custom header or include a photo frame, or put the picture in a text widget on the side bars etc.
Can any one teach me how to use the contact form code? I don’t understand the explanation.
You just type this:
You create a static page click Dashboard > Pages > Add New in the left menu and type a title into the title field.
Before publishing that static page you click the HTML link to switch to the code editor.Then you type (do not copy and paste) the shortcode into the HTML editor just like Panos posted above. Lastly, you publish the page with the shortcode on it.
