How to Add Banner Link to Header

  • Wesley

    #1558

    I’d like to add a banner to the right side of my header that has a link in it.

    I thought I could just paste the link and image code into the header.php, but that’s not working.

    I want it to look something like the banner on http://www.greenexamacademy.com

    Thanks.

    Either use two separate images (which together add up to 960 x 198) with two separate links, or use one image with an image map.

    You are doing this in a child theme, right?

    This is going to sound bad, but I don’t know what a child theme is…

    I have the custom header made. I just don’t know how to add the link. Like where do I physically put the code?

    I read something about putting it in the header.php , but I have no clue.

    I take it that you mean you have the custom header image made.

    I just don’t know how to add the link. Like where do I physically put the code?

    This is where a child theme comes in. Start by reading this post and then read this page to learn how to create an image map.

    A little bit of work, but the result will be worth it in the end.

    Also, this page from the WP Codex will tell you more about child themes.
