Look into bfa_header_config.php how the blog title is overlayed and do the same with a container that contains your image

There is a post in the GOLD forum explaining how to overlay the logo on the header image

I would like to reply and ofer a possible answer to the question posed. My solution does not involve code modifications. It is actually a little trick that virtually anybody can do. I saw there are other threads where blog owners have similar issues. I hope my solution will be acceptable to others as it worked well for me and my blog. I wrote an off topic article on my blog that addresses this issue. Please take a look:

Cheers!

Thanks. Not an elegant solution, but the only one that works with the new version of Atahualpa. Flynn's solution written on another thread, and referred to above, no longer works.

If anyone has a better solution, please detail it.
Thanks,
Sue

While sasajakov solution in post 11 will work (create a bunch of images with with your logo on them) it suffers from the problem of variable width pages. If you make the page smaller the logo may be cut off depending on how you lock the center image unless you stick to a fixed width page.

There is a post in the gold forum 'How to overlay the LOGO on the Header Image in versions 3.4->3.4.2'

Kind of rude to refer to a post in a locked forum, IMO.

I'm sure you didn't intend to imply that those of us who haven't paid for whatever reason should get out of the sandbox.



(eta) actually it seems you point to the gold forum on many threads here.

Yes I do point to the gold forums on several threads to let people know there is an answer.

Flynn has setup some forums for people who have donated to: him for the theme development and support, and/or me for support. While I've given away many, many hours of free support, there are occasions when I choose to reserve a solution or 'how to' - that I spent several hours developing - for those who have donated - call it an extra perk for them.

This is not to stop you from figuring out a solution and posting it for everyone else (the fact that there is a solution should help you develop one yourself)

But let me ask you this - Do you give everything away for free? Or are you making a web site to make money?

this is a pro bono website for a small community.

They have no money and neither do I, and it is intended to keep an emotional connection alive whilst we all fight our way through these times.

What I liked was the rotating header, I wasn't expecting this huge backend!

Just sent 20 bucks paypal to get access to this solution, but I guess the money won't clear for 3-4 days, according to an automated message in my User CP. Any way I can get an answer today, since this is the time I have slated to work on the company site?

Thanks!

Well, I figured out something that works for me. Try putting this into Configure Header Area:

HTML Code:
%logo
<div style="position:absolute;top:0px;width:900px;height:150px;">
%image
Adjust width number for horizontal placement on your page, etc.

Well done, Flapperjak - much simpler!

I ended up reversing the order, and there's a space in the word "height" that can be removed.

Cheers
