    I'm trying to add a header to one of my sites but usually I just replace the current headers name with a different image with the same name.

    This time the site has no header.

    My theme is asking me for "if you would like to display a logo in the header, please enter the file URL path(link to)"

    I tried adding my image through FTP and then entering Mysite/public_HTML/wp-content/uploads/2011/nameofimage.jpg but that didn't work. That was my guess of what it means

    What am I supposed to use ?

    Thanks

    You could upload the image to photobucket or some such site and just add the image into your editor file where you want it to show.

    I do that all the time with ads... I place them at the very bottom of the header file in the editor section of WP and they sit just above my articles.

    Thanks.

    I want it to show on all pages as it's my logo.

    And it will if you do it the way I do it...

    In your dashboard:

    Go to appearance
    Then editor
    Then Header (header.php)

    and have your way with it!

    Went into header.php and can see <div id ="header">

    I presume I need a Bit of code under that ?
