Hi Jabernathy, Would it be possible for you to post a link to your site also, so we can see what theme you're currently using and take it from there.

This is the site I want it to look like.

I am using Platform Pro theme. I figured part of it out by pasting code from the old site into the custom code area of Platform pro. But what folder do I upload my images to?

Hello, The best way to do extensive modifications (whether CSS or PHP) is to use the Base child theme. Make sure it's downloaded and installed, and you can activate it via Appearance->Themes. There's an images folder in there where you can upload custom images, and then reference them in the style.css file (in the Base directory).

I am in the PagelinesBase child theme. If I put it in htdocs-wp-content-themes-platformbase-images they show up there but they are not being seen. If I put them in htdocs-wp-content-themes-platformpro-images it says access denied.

You don't manually upload it. In the Dashboard > PlatformPro > Global Options there's a place to upload your image. You'll see it once uploaded. Don't forget to Save.

But that is for a logo upload. I have done that. I see where to add code (in the custom code area of PlatformPro) to change the header but where do I upload my image to?

To upload images to wordpress use Media -> Upload. Once uploaded you can browse all your images and get the absolute path for each on for use in your stylesheet.
