You will be able to do this within your index.php file within your template, or you could create a custom module to be placed in the position of the header and add your header image in there with the link in there

For displaying the header there will be a class and that class will be used in a div tag

in between the div tag just have your link

<div><a href=''>Link</a><d/iv>

I'm using this for almost all my project Banner header, easy to use and not expensive.

or you can used Joomla core module
Components->Banners->Manage Banners.
A Banner is displayed on the website using the Banner Module.

Or if you want just to edit existing core template let say rhuk_milkyway template:

Edit the file index.php located in the directory \templates\rhuk_milkyway.

 Modify the following line of code as follows:

find this line
 <div id="logo"></div>

Open in new window

change for this
 <div id="logo"><a href="<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/"><img src="<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/rhuk_milkyway/images/mw_joomla_logo.png" /></a></div>

Open in new window

Hi, sorry for your late answer,
I have changed my line.. this one:

 <div id="logo"></div>

<div id="logo"><a href="<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/"><img src="<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/rhuk_milkyway/images/mw_joomla_logo.png" /></a></div>

but now i see a small logo above my top banner, without picture - when you want to link a picture, but there is no picture....

You could try just doing a direct link to you image without using php like this
<div id="logo"><a href=""><img src="" /></a></div>

And make sure you use the #logo to style the position within the site also


#logo {

For example
