take a look here
http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/is_page
this will let you set up an if to determine which page you are on and show the logo accordingly

I would recommend doing this all through the wordpress functionality and then just making one change to the header.php page so that you can specify what logo to display when creating/editing a wordpress page.

In your header.php replace your img tag for the logo with the following.
<?php
$logoImg = get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),'logo-image');
try
{
	$logoImg = $logoImg[0];
}
catch (Exception $e)
{
	$logoImg = "/wp-content/images/uploads/default-logo.png"; //place a default image here for pages that don't have it set
}
?>
	<img src="<?php	echo $logoImg;?>" alt="Logo"/>

Open in new window


then in your pages add a "Custom Field" named "logo-image" and add the path and image name for the value.


this way you don't have to edit an "if is_page()" block or case statement every time you add a page, and you could display any image you wanted there.

Would this still work on my new template I am using.
<?php
$logoImg = get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),'logo-image');
try
{
	$logoImg = $logoImg[0];
}
catch (Exception $e)
{
	$logoImg = "/wp-content/images/uploads/default-logo.png"; //place a default image here for pages that don't have it set
}
?>
	<img src="<?php	echo $logoImg;?>" alt="Logo"/>

re: post 39299292

Yes that should still work.
If you have a custom field  named "logo-image" on a page it should display that image. If you don't have that custom field on a page, it will display the default image.

Thank you all for helping me. The code was great - although I went a different route :)
