    Great Theme.

    I am very much an amateur on here and have a few questions that I hope you don’t mind me asking:

    - Header replace with logo (remove levitation) – I cannot figure out how to remove the Levtitation logo from the template. – Home – allow me to add text at top of page – How do I add Social media links? – Allow us to change/edit sidebars (including contact us box)

    Site – http://www.outplacementoptions.com

    Thanks for reading my message.

    If you want to remove the logo open header.php and delete following line:

    <h1 class='logo'><a href="<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>

    If you only want to change the logo (replace it with your own, you need to open style1.css and search following line

    #top .logo a{
    background: transparent url(../images/skin1/logo.png) repeat-x top left;
    }

    Replace logo.png with the filename of your logo. You must upload your logo to the themes folder (themes/levitation/images/skin1).

    To add social media links you’ve several options. You can use widgets (for the sidebar) or you write them into a php file – i.e. footer.php or header.php.

    The sidebar is widget ready – you can customize the sidebar via admin panel > design > widgets.

    Here you can add search fields, etc. to your sidebar. You can download plugins (widgets) at wordpress.org: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ . I’m sure that you’ll find some social link plugins, etc. in their database.

    i just tried to follow these directions and realized that the style css files are not showing on my wordpress admin page. would you know the reason for that? under styles i only have style.css

    WordPress’ built in editor can’t handle some files within folders – style1.css is in the CSS folder.

    You’d need to edit the files using a text editor and use FTP to upload the file to your site.

    Hey,

    What about if I want to remove the logo and replace with a larger header graphic that spans the full width of the page? How would I do this?

    I tried adding the header graphic but the theme limits the width of the logo file. Please help.

    Thanks

    If you want the background within the container (940px) open up style.css and change the logo width (around line 118) from this:

    .logo, .logo a{
    display:block;
    height:95px;
    left:0px;
    position:absolute;
    top:5px;
    width:278px;
    }

    to this:

    .logo, .logo a{
    display:block;
    height:95px;
    left:0px;
    position:absolute;
    top:5px;
    width:940px;
    }

    If you’d rather have the image span the whole page width, I would add this to the body class like this:

    body { background: url(PATH/TO/IMAGE.JPG) no-repeat center top !important;}

    Just add this code to the end of style.css
