I'm a total wordpress noob and ran into my first problem. I downloaded this theme.

My question is how do I change how the p#logo.h1 is shown. I would like to put a <br /> in the middle of my title, and half in a custom .

So the html of the title should be something like:

<p id="logo><h1>This is a<br /><span id="customtitle">Big title</span></h1></p>

How can I change that?

I don't even know where to start. Hence "I'm a total wordpress noob". – justanotherhobbyist Feb 15 '13 at 21:23
Go to your header.php in y our theme directory, copy the contents and paste it for us at www.pastebin.com – Androliyah Feb 15 '13 at 21:37

In your header.php file, replace this line:

<p id="logo" class="h1"><a href="<?php echo home_url(); ?>" rel="nofollow"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></p>

with your custom line:

<p id="logo><h1>This is a<br /><span id="customtitle">Big title</span></h1></p>
