Need help completing a website

Permalink
I just found out that I have been paying $100/month for a CMS that I cannot take with me if I leave my current company. I switched over to concrete5 and I am having difficulty adding a logo over my site text for the default theme along with adding a background image possibly for a top and bottom background CSS and to be able to add music to the site.
I have read the forums a few times but just don't quite get which theme on the file server is the plain yogurt theme for concrete5.5

Thank you

Plain Yoghurt is the default theme that comes activated when you do a fresh Concrete5 install. In case you need to modify any existing themes or blocks you , in case of themes you can find the \mysite.com\concrete\themes in a dir known as Default, you need copy this dir to
mysite.com/themes/ and then begin modifying the theme as per your preference.

You could add the logo in the header.php file of the selected theme by replacing

<h1 id="logo"><!--
         --><a href="<?php   echo DIR_REL?>/"><?php   
            $block = Block::getByName('My_Site_Name');  
            if( $block && $block->bID ) $block->display();   
            else echo SITE;
         ?></a><!--
      --></h1>


with

<div id="topLogo"><a href="<?php echo DIR_REL?>/"><img src="<?php echo $this->getThemePath()?>/images/my_logo.jpg" width="197px" height="118px" alt="My Logo" /></a></div>


and place the logo image within the images dir of your themes dir

Hope this helps !!

Hello, and thank you for the response. I do have the logo up and running, now I would like to put a background image into the site and background music with the ability to shut it off.
Please I would like to learn the basics of concrete.

I'm glad you are getting your problems solved and learning more about Concrete5 -- but please note that this forum area is for job postings. If you could kindly re-post your question in one of the other forums (for example, "Building With Concrete5)", it would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
