For two years I have had a custom text logo in my header when clicked would send you back to the home page. When I logged into my website this morning it was all screwed up. All of the customizations were gone, including my logo. I had a warning at the top of my WP dashboard that said I needed to update my theme options and save them one by one.

So I updated and saved them and everything was restored but the text logo header. So I went into customize header and reinstalled the logo just as I did before. Now when I click on the logo nothing happens. But as soon as L remove it and replace it with the ugly default WP text logo, everything works great.

Is there any particular setting in WP that can enable the header image to link back to the home page like I have had it for 2 years now? Any idea why it is not working anymore?

Which theme are you using? How long since you backed up? Have you tried a different theme? Are you using a child theme? What has changed? Any new plugins?

Mesocolumn. It was backed up 2 days ago. It is a bug with the theme update. See my comment for more.

Did you get it fixed? If you didn't, I'm sure it's in the code somewhere. Let me know what site it is and I'll investigate!

Robert, it should, by default, link to your site address. Try another theme (make a back up first), and add your logo. If it works, then you know it's some bug in the theme update. WP Theme-Name Support (guess you know how to get there) and post the question.

John, a quick little question for you. if the theme has any sort of bug in it regarding not doing what it is meant to be doing regarding the general running of it, ie. default settings as you mentioned etc. are you better just to change the theme altogether? Would this save a lot of hassle?

Hey Robert, Just found this my friend

http://www.templatemonster.com/help/wordpress-how-to-assign-a-custom-link-to-logo.html

Rather than changing this to google as in the video just check to see where it is going to and replace it to home? Please forgive my guess work Robert I am still very new to this. Code etc.

Hope this helps?
Cheers
Darwyn
