Add URL link to WordPress default header

Here is a quick post on how to add a URL link to your WordPress header. This has only been tested on the default theme. You will need to know the dimensions of the header; the default header is 760px by 200px. Note, you will need to disable Toggle Text Display, in WordPress Admin→Presentation→Header Image and Color→Advanced→Toggle Text Display.

Simply add the following code into header.php after <div id="header">

 <a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/" style="display:block;height: 200px;width: 760px"></a> 

With it inserted should look like the following:

<div id="header"><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/" style="display:block;height: 258px;width: 760px"></a>
	<div id="headerimg">
		<h1><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>
		<div class="description"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div>
