I just downloaded a tumblr theme for my new blog. I'd like to insert a banner at the top of the page in place of the title. I already have the banner I'd like to use but I am unsure of where/how to edit the html so that it appears.

Attached is the html script.

Any help is appreciated, I'm new to this. Attached File  html.doc ( 120k ) Number of downloads: 4003

Use your editor's Find tool and search for "title" and you'll find the spot.

Also, don't use Word to edit HTML. It may do things one doesn't want done to HTML unless you know exactly what you are doing. Use a plain text editor. Notepad will do fine if you don't have something better. smile.gif

Thanks! I actually wasn't editing it in word, I just posted it here in word as an attachment.

Also, I did insert it in the title spot, but it completely messed up the entire layout. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

Can you provide the URL (address) of a document that demonstrates the problem?

Do you have a version that demonstrates your best effort at adding the "banner code", so we can see what the problem is?

My sidebar goes to the bottom of the page and the banner doesnt even show up.

I recommend that you start by fixing the markup and CSS errors reported by the online tools:

Where did you put the markup for it? The source code has the same as before...
HTML
<div id="title"><a href="/">Life on Long Island</a></div>
