    i’m trying to put the image on the navigation bar. I’m using image t=1 and i’ve made the relevant changes to the code you have provided.

    However, i get this message : Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
    XML error message: Open quote is expected for attribute “{1}” associated with an element type “href”.

    Could you please help me?
