How To Change Header Title Into Logo (Plain Yogurt Theme)
thanks in advance.
Inspect your elements folder. Make a copy of it and Do Not change the default files.
Go to the help section of Concrete5. There are basic instructions on how to do these things if your needing the help.
Concrete5 is an easy system to use and themes are very easy to learn, just read the tutorials and/or the videos.
make a backup of this file before you start!!
go to line 30:
and replace this with whatever you want - an image or so!
Hope this helps you!
Here is a good place to start
There is another link with a video by Andy on how to convert a theme.
Just make sure you do not change the root/concrete/themes/default files. As pixel8 stated, make a copy of it. I would suggest you make a complete copy of the theme folder, rename it to what you wish it to be and copy install it into the sitename/themes folder or into the sitename/packages folder (depending on how the theme was created - just look and see if there is a controller file in the root of that theme. if there is, place it in the packages dir, if not, place it directly in the themes folder).
Thanks for the reply. I only have one question to ask, as you seem to have told me to copy the default files 'and' the theme folder.
should i do both?
copy this folder
now the default theme will be overriden by your new theme, as the ones in the root theme folder would be used first... if you would like to, you could rename the theme, but that would also require to modify the file description.txt so that you can recognize your theme from the original in the dashboard...
thanks for the advice, but due to my hosting package, the layout of the folders do not match the ones you have specified. you might be using another company.
would i use an img src?
I know i'm an ignorant so and so when it comes to these things, but i appreciate your help.
1) Go to Dashboard>Scrapbook>Global.
2) Add a new content block called "My_Site_Name" (no quotes).
3) Leave the content area blank or add text you want. Suddenly it vanishes.
The "novice" way of placing a logo up in the top left:
1) Add a new block layout to the Nav or Header area that is 2 columns and 1 row.
2) Now you have a left and right area. Add the logo to the left side and the nav to the right (if that's what you are looking for.
Good luck! You'll figure it out.
Make sure it's dimension is around 270 wide, this for the plain yogurt theme.
Hope this helps.
I'm trying to do the same thing. I successfully changed the logo at line 30, per your instructions, but it only displays on the home page. On other pages, it's showing that little question mark graphic that displays when an image can't be found. I don't see why it would be using different instructions for "home" versus any other page, as the instructions for all of them are contained in the elements/header file. Right? What am I missing here?
Here's what I'm using at line 30:
--><a href="<?php echo DIR_REL?>/">
<img src="themes/default/images/inneroptics_dot_net_starfish.jpg" alt="Fake Logo" />
I've gone in and successfully changed the logo starting at line 30....
--><a href="http://kimberblue.com"><img src="/themes/dark_chocolate/elements/kim_logo_small.png" alt="kimberblue_logo" width="235" height="57"/></a><!--
I don't understand why it displays differently when I log out of edit mode? Any suggestions?
<a href=""><img src="<?php echo $this->getThemePath()?>/images/yourimage.jpg" alt="yourimage" /></a>
