I want to add a logo

I'm know this is a simple question, but I just can't find the answer in the forums or in the user manual. I want to add my own logo (a gif file) at the top of my blog. I have basic html knowledge, but I'm a novice with php and style sheets.

You'll need to edit the skin. You can find it in /skins/whatever-skin-you're-using/_main.php

A great deal of that file just looks like html. You can put your logo in that way and then adjust as needed.

Thanks for your reply. I'm still unsure what to do. More questions. Do I edit the file on the server and upload the image in the skin folder (I use the custom skin) or do I do this in the administration area of b2? And the larger question is: where do I add the code. Again, it's probably quite simple, and I'm missing something obvious, but I've gone through the code over and over, and I just can't figure it out. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Where you add the code depends on where you want the image to show up. If you want it in the blue header at the top of the page, then find this code in /skins/custom/_main.php:


<div class="pageHeader">
<h1 id="pageTitle"><?php $Blog->disp( 'name', 'htmlbody' ) ?></h1>
<div class="pageSubTitle"><?php $Blog->disp( 'tagline', 'htmlbody' ) ?></div>

Insert the code for your image like this:


<div class="pageHeader">
<img src="img/mylogo.jpg" alt="My logo" style="float:left" />
<h1 id="pageTitle"><?php $Blog->disp( 'name', 'htmlbody' ) ?></h1>
<div class="pageSubTitle"><?php $Blog->disp( 'tagline', 'htmlbody' ) ?></div>

Upload your image to the /skins/custom/img folder.
