    I’m somewhat new to Genesis and have been pulling my hair out trying to find out how to do a custom logo. Genesis (or WP?) in Agency Theme wants to use a header of 960×115 I think because of this code:

    /** Add support for custom header */
    add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array( ‘width’ => 960, ‘height’ => 115 ) );

    and will ask you to “crop” any image that is smaller and then makes it larger!

    Is that what this code is doing:

    Is that why we have to take it out?

    [editorial] Why did Genesis make it so difficult to do a custom logo/header when every other framework/child theme (especially Elegant Themes) makes is so easy! [/editorial]

    Perfect timing – just had this question with my site redesign I did this weekend. I like the responsive pieces as well, because I’m having some issues with that right now. Thanks for the post.

    Thank you for the article. I’m in the process of building http://www.goodnewsalliance.com I am using a child “news theme” Is this what i am supposed to “part out”

    /* Image Header – Partial Width
    ———————————————————— */

    .header-image #title-area,
    .header-image #title,
    .header-image #title a {
    display: block;
    float: left;
    height: 110px;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding: 0;
    text-indent: -9999px;
    width: 465px;

    .header-image #description {
    display: block;
    overflow: hidden;

    Does “part out” mean completely remove?
    Do I replace all of below with this one line?
    #header { background: url(“images/logo.png”) left no-repeat; }

    Matt, no, don’t remove any of that code. Simply add the line to the bottom of your style sheet.

    Jean, nice tutorial! I just referred someone to it on the StudioPress forums.

    Do we really need to use FTP to upload custom header? No. You add the support for custom logo and you can upload the image from the custom header page.

    About responsive header, if you’re looking for a simpler version, try search for “Genesis Responsive Header” plugin by designbynickthegeek.com

    Hi Jean, great post. I am trying to figure out how to add a URL to my header image. Currently my custom header image is just a passive image that shows on every page. I’d like for a user to click on it to be able to go to the home page. Any thoughts on how best to achieve this? Thanks!

    you could put a slideshow plug in in the header
    just use one pic and use the url to link the pic

    if you are happy with the widget area use a text widget in header right or what you have avail in widget area
    use html code in your text widget
    ?Title<img src="?Pic URL" width="?" height="?"

    not sure if the html code would work directly in the header im only a newb

    thanks alot! It works, note: when I removed the line of code from my functions.php the logo option in Genesis Theme Settings started showing so I had to disable dynamic text and select “logo”.

    Thanks for the tutorial, after following the steps, when I click on the logo it does not take me to the home page, and although it is not mandatory for it to be that way, it is kind of an standard. Would it be possible to add a link from the logo to the homepage? (Sorry if my question is too naive) thank you again!

    Hi, how do you turn off the mobile theme option on/off and keep it off by default since we are already using the genesis framework which is reponsive?

    Can you tell me how to remove the subscribe button on the top of the page on the Word Press, Genesis Minimum Theme. I just want to remove it for one page – the page I created for people to go to after they hit subscribe.

    Actually, I figured it out. You just set the page as a landing page in layout.

    I hate to add code to themes because I usually mess it up. But this worked like a charm. Thanks!
