I. Adding Your Own Logo
The template is configured to use either an image logo or the site name on the top banner. To use a graphic logo, save your
logo as logo.png. Transparent PNG files are recommended to avoid strange styling with the banner.

into the content to display it on the full article page.
Subtitles are displayed on individual article pages and the home page (latest post). To add an article subtitle, use custom
