Hi andreaz,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm sorry you're having difficulty adding a custom logo to the header of the 2011 WordPress theme. It can be accomplished however, you'll need to edit the CSS file to add an image.
<p class="vital_heading">It's important before you make changes to the css file that you create a copy or back up the file. that way, any changes you make can easily be reverted to the original.</p>
<ol class="article_list">
<li>Open the style.css for that theme in the editor within the WordPress Dashboard</li>
<li>Find the line of code:</li>
<p class="code_block">#site-title {</p>
<li>Change the entry for the #site-title to:</li>
<p class="code_block">#site-title {
background: url("path_to_image") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
height:(size of image height)PX;
width: (size of image width)PX;
}</p>
<li>Add this line of code underneath it:</li>
<p class="code_block">#site-title a, #site-description {
display: none;
}</p>
<li> Save your changes</li>
</ol>
If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.

Thanks!
