    Hi Holly!

    I really love that you’re doing these videos. Thank you so much!! They are top notch! I have been looking for a theme that is quick and easy to mold to my needs and have heard so much about flexibility. But without your videos, it would not be so quick and easy. I think when I get the gist of what I’m doing, it should be alot easier, but right now it’s not so quick!! I’ve spent about 4 hours trying to make a header graphic for the first of many sites I am building while trying to learn the ins and outs of the flexibility 3 theme. Your videos have been a godsend. As soon as I can get over this hump of learning how to manipulate this theme, I’m sure I’ll be able to get my speed up in building my sites.

    You said in this video, there is a download for the transparent logo that you use to hide your blog title but I can’t find it on your site. If I knew graphic design, I would make one but I’m not up on that. Could you please tell me how to get it?

    Thanks for a great site. I have just signed up for your feeds.

    I did not get the reason for the transparency. If her name is on the logo, why would you need the other saved for SEO?

    Thanks.

    The transparent logo–allows you to put your title and tag line under the general settings and not bleed through your custom header image. If you have a custom image AND a title and tag line under general settings (which you would want to use for seo purposes). I hope this makes sense.

    Hi Holly,

    Thanks for your videos. They are golden. It has helped me a lot. Where do I get the info for the transparent logo? Is it code?

    Thanks

    Holly,

    Thank you for your videos, this is exactly what I was looking for. Leaving the transparent logo here for us to download was just really helpful. You have saved me so much time and headache.

    I love the flexibility themes and by watching only 3 of your videos I have realized how much more I could do with it, so I will definitely refer back to your site again.

    Thank you!

    Andrea

    Holly,
    Thanks for replying to my emails and for the videos. They are top notch and have really helped me in my learning curve. So much easier to use the Flexibility Theme when you learn about the options and controls. Since you did not venture into creating a header, can I suggest paint.net, which makes it easy to create a header. Don’t know if there are tutorials on using it, but heard about it through a marketing site and it is pretty cool FREE tool.
    Again thanks for the site and info.

    Love your videos! thanks for explaining the transparent logo!!

    I am new to WP, I was very confused, I am so glad to find your videos.

    Thank you for all your work!



  10. Holly Powell on September 27, 2011 at 11:58 am

    Waiyi,

    You’re welcome it’s my pleasure!!! I wish I had more time to do more–some days I think oh my that would make a good video…but with all the work i have to do it’s all I can do to keep up. However, I appreciate your nice comments.



  11. John on October 16, 2011 at 5:51 am

    Thank you for the informative videos!! Would you please provide a link for the transparent image within custom headers. I’m unable to use TITLE or HEADER options in the wordpress dashboard, therefore if I add it to the dashboard it overlaps my custom header. Seems that the link above is not working. Thanks, and have a great day!!



  12. John on October 16, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    Holly,

    I figured out the transparent instructions. Duh.. LOL

    Thanks



  13. Holly Powell on October 29, 2011 at 11:39 am

    Hi John,

    so glad–sorry I didn’t get back to you–but glad you figured it out



  14. Sue on January 24, 2012 at 6:13 am

    Hi Holly,

    Your videos are really a great reference point and thanks so much.
    I know I have done this before but can’t seem to get it to work now, I want to change the “home” tab text to “blog”.

    I’ve gone to the header.php and tried there but it didn’t work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sue

    How can I use a swf archive for a header? I would like a dinamic header, is it possible?

    Thank you very much, it helps me alot.



  17. Holly Powell on March 8, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Fred,
    Now that is a question I’m not sure how to answer. My designers might be able to take a look and help you out



  18. Holly Powell on March 8, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Sue,
    I did 3 videos recently about this. You can use menu’s to do this. Add a custom Page called Blog (in menus).
    Watch this video and let me know if this works for you

    Hi Holly,
    Great videos, and I like your site. I was sorry to hear about your husband, and wish you both the very best.
    I put the transparent header on my website, but if you look it leaves me with a small cross box. Any ideas, please? I origiinally got rid of my header by making the font 0pixels and padding the tagline to the bottom of the header, then making the font colour the same as the background, but I think your solution would be much more elegant, if I could get rid of the X
    Regards
    Neil



  20. Neil on October 20, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    Hi Holly,
    Sorry about my previous message, I must learn to engage brain before opening mouth. X is gone, problem solved.
    Regards
    Neil



  21. Holly Powell on November 7, 2012 at 7:51 am

    Neil,

    I looked at nesan.co.uk and I’m not seeing the X were you able to get this fixed?

    Thanks
    Holly Powell



  22. Vicki on June 13, 2013 at 3:20 am

    Hi Holly
    Thanks so much for the videos, they have really helped with my site. Although I am having the same problem as the comment above regarding the x showing where the transparent logo has been added. I have tried a few different things to try and make it disappear but not having any success. My website is energyhealinglondon.co.uk – any suggestions would be really appreciated.
    Thank you
    Vicki



  23. Holly Powell on June 13, 2013 at 10:19 am

    Vicki,

    Send me a message if you don’t mind sharing your login with me and I’ll see if I can fix it. I’ll also do a video that shows you what I did.

    Thanks
    Holly

    Hi Holly,

    Your videos are great and they’ve been really helpful so far.

    However, I seem to have got stuck with making the title of my site invisible. I’ve a custom .png as the header but the title bleeds through – even though Flex3 options say that it shouldn’t!

    I have managed to hide the tagline using Custom CSS #header h3, p.tagline {visibility:hidden;} and I thought a similar format would work with the title, but no such luck!

    Have you any idea how I can hide the title?

    Thank you.
    Kevin
