I need to edit Magento header by adding an icon and small image telling visitors that we offer Cash-on-Delivery. It should be somewhere around the search bar in the header.

You need to edit your theme's header template.

This can be found at app/design/$package_name/$theme_name/template/page/html/header.phtml

$package_name is the name of the package - e.g. rwd, base

$theme_name is the name of the theme (usually default) e.g. default, modern

These values can be found in the admin under System -> Configuration -> General -> Design.

enter image description here

Please note that depending on where you need to add the icon you may need to edit another template file as it might be a child block of the header template.

  • I did it by adding the COD details in the header.phtml in line 215 : app->design->frontend->themeName->default->template->page->html->header.phtml Commented Jul 24, 2015 at 12:45
  • For proper alignment towards right side i enclosed my icon and text in <div="item item-right hide-below-960">My COD icon with text </div> Commented Jul 25, 2015 at 4:42
  • Thats great. Do you need anymore help with finding templates? Commented Jul 25, 2015 at 16:47
  • Yes i need some more help.Can you see my asked questions if yes please see my latest asked question. Commented Jul 25, 2015 at 16:49
  • That question has now been answered. When I started out with Magento I found Alan Storm's book No Frills Magento Layout to be invaluable with understanding Magento. One other thing you can do which I forgot to mention is if you turn on Template Hints which will tell you where the template is located - pauldonnelly.net/magento-turning-on-template-path-hints. If you are happy with my answer can you mark my answer as answered please :) Commented Jul 26, 2015 at 14:30
