I may be over my head on this one but,

If I create / modify a theme and use a logo image instead of a title line. How do I get an "Upload Logo Image" field on the >admin >edit theme page?

I can't figure out where >admin >edit theme gets its options from.

Unfortunately as far as i know, You can only get Images Instead of Text only on the Themes where the Title is actually an image.

Hi Owen, Thanks.
I did a modified Aerial theme called areialredux, replacing the headline text with a logo image.
I noticed that shimray also did the same thing called aerialplusplus.
I see there is an upload field for the logo image on that themes admin panel  (screenshot).
I'm just wondering where that option on admin comes from.

I'll try to re-phrase the question:

1) Where does >Admin >Edit theme get those options from?
- I create a theme based on the Club theme.
- The original Club theme uses a site title \ tagline.
- I edit the css and general.html/dndindex.html to replace the title with a logo image.

2) How do I add an 'Upload Logo' field to >Admin >Edit Theme if it's not already there in the original theme?

I can't figure out... Where does >Admin >Edit theme get those options from for each theme?
