Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] How to add icon and link to logo bar

I want to add a "follow me on Twitter" icon with corresponding link to the very top of my site where the logo bar is. I want to have this icon here instead of the feed icons that normally appear here. I attempted to do this myself hacker style by replacing this CSS:
/*-------------------- POSTS FEED ICON --------------------*/

.posts-icon {
background: transparent url(images/icons/Twitter-2.png) no-repeat scroll 0;
height: 40px;
line-height: 40px;
margin: 0px 10px 0px 20px;
padding-left: 25px;
padding-right: 55px;
/*display: inline-block;*/
display: block;
text-decoration: none;
float: right;
white-space: nowrap;
I replaced the image location to the icon and it displayed fine. The only problem was that the link was still for the posts-rss. I know that this link is coming from a php function but I cannot find it. Is there a better way of doing this than the way I am pursuing? How do I add the Twitter link?

I cannot think of anything more elegant. The code is in functions/bfa_header_config.php


PHP Code:
$logo_area .= 'href="' get_bloginfo('rss2_url') . '" title="' 
$bfa_ata['post_feed_link_title'] . '">' 
$bfa_ata['post_feed_link'] . '</a>'

PHP Code:
$logo_area .= 'href="http://www.your-link.com/" title="....">Link Title</a>'

I had this working, then upgraded to Atahualpa 3.4.2, and lost my changed bfa_header_config.php file. Now I can't get it to work again. I have no idea if I am doing something wrong or if it is broken under the 3.4.2 upgrade or possibly Wordpress 2.8.4. Please help, as tickets go online soon! The "logo" is the "Online Ticketing coming soon!" button in the logo area at http://www.thepuppetco.org. I did a replace per Flynn's instructions.


// POSTS Feed link
if ( $bfa_ata['show_posts_icon'] == "Yes" ) {

$logo_area .= '<a class="posts-icon" ';

if ( $bfa_ata['nofollow'] == "Yes" ) {
$logo_area .= 'rel="nofollow" ';

$logo_area .= 'href="http://www.thepuppetco.org/tickets/" title="....">Link Title</a>';


if ( $bfa_ata['show_posts_icon'] == "Yes" OR $bfa_ata['show_email_icon'] == "Yes" OR
$bfa_ata['show_comments_icon'] == "Yes" ) {
$logo_area .= '</div></td>';
if ( $bfa_ata['show_search_box'] == "Yes" ) {
$logo_area .= '</tr><tr>';

What's not working? I see the image there, and it's linked to the homepage

And I tried so hard to explain. :-) I don't want it linked to the homepage, I want it to go to the page I put in the example above. That page is a dummy, and will be linked to the ticket site when it is up. In the code I posted, expected it to have gone to http://www.thepuppetco.org/tickets when the button is clicked, not the home page.

I know Flynn is a busy guy, so if Juggledad or anyone reading this thread can help me, I am a bit desperate. I am trying to get the "Logo" in the header logo area to link to a page other than the blog or home. The code is shown above in red. Well, the whole thread is here for all to see. I am a little frustrated as to why it is not working or why it was not clear to Flynn what the problem was. If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You were putting this in the POST FEED area, not the LOGO

ok, here is how to do it. Change bfa_header_config.php (atahualpa 3.4.2) and change line 120 from
HTML Code:
			$bfa_ata['get_option_home'] . '/"><img class="logo" src="';
HTML Code:
			'http://www.thepuppetco.org/tickets/"><img class="logo" src="';
