    ahh ok, sorry, you have to go to the theme file and look in the index or header file. Open it up with dreamweaver and you will see a yellow object icon, actually you will see a few ..you have to delete the object that relates to the title and site slogan text. if you get back to me right away, send me the template folder and the logo you want and I'll just do it for you.

    I suppose you are referring to the title and description...

    From dashboard, go to option then change your title/description to anything you want.

    That link is not very useful, and I see that you still don't have added a logo.

    Open theme editor!
    There you can edit the template files.
    Open header.php, find and remove
    <h1><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>
       <p class="Desc"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></p>
    Code (markup):
    Open style.css
    Find:
     .Header .LS { position: absolute; top: 30px; left: 30px; background: url(images/LogoIcon.png) no-repeat left top; width: 40px; height: 43px;}
    Code (markup):
    and replace LogoIcon.png with your own logo name (you should upload your logo with ftp client into /images/ directory of illacrimo theme) and change the 40px; height: 43px values to fit with your logo size.

    I did all this here: http://www.celebritete.com/

    I have done that but when I deleted the code in header the top part dissapeared so I inserted that code again but updoaded my own logo instead of that LogoIcon.PN.. please tell me how to hide the title and description its there on the background

    also one doubt ... if i delete that H1 and description how about the optimization.. then it becomes a website without a heading and title.... and its bad when we consider SEO.

    I checked out your site, looks like you have a background image now, you done?

    As far as your SEO, still have your META stuff going on., You lost some valuable H1 points but I think you'll be allright. An H1 early in the code is good but now everything.

    Most good looking blogs get rid of it.
