Hi, is there a way to add a larger size logo at all? When I reduce my logo file size to suit it looks that bit too small. Any advice much appreciated, thanks,

Steve

Hi,

Can you supply a URL - or at least the skin you're using/basing your design on?

Different skin use different methods- so put it in a <div> as a background image (so you can have overlaid graphics/text), and others use a HTML <img> tag.

If you can't see a <img src=".... inside the /skins/yourskin/global/index.tpl, the header image is set-up in layout.css

Hi Jason,

Thanks for the reply. At the moment I intend to just use the standard 'killer' skin as I am just starting out with the basics.

Ideally I would like to either just replace the current Cubecart logo with my logo but slightly larger. Or even better add a full banner heading along the top of the page.

Any advice much appreciated,

Steve

First rename your logo to

topheader.gif

now save to this folder

skins\Legend\styleImages\backgrounds

The part in red is the name of the skin u r using eg classic/legend or killer

thats it

Hi!

I am a new user and I am trying to understand the information here to improve my site.

But I don't understand this bit about changing the logo.

Where are the folders? Do you mean go to the website source and change the image name there.

I went to the source but could not find any place to enter my logo name.

I really do not understand how to locate the 'folder'.

where is it?

Help will be appreciated.

Ok,

to do this, you will need to know how to use an FTP client. Once set-up its mainly dragging and dropping files, just like Windows explorer.

I use "Filezilla" which is free and works well. Search for it on Google, and download/install.

Depending on your hosting you'll need to get to the root directory of your site.

This is sometimes called "www", "public_html", or "htdocs" on some Windows servers.

The list below shows the location of each default logo.

Killer:

/skins/killer/styleimages/backgrounds/topHeader.gif

Classic:

/skins/classic/styleimages/backgrounds/contentBg.jpg

Legend:

/skins/legend/styleimages/backgrounds/topHeader.gif

Download the image, depending on the skin you're using.

As you're just starting out, I'd recommend editing the image and create your logo, save in the same format and make sure the filename is exactly the same (ie TopHeader is *not* the same as topHeader)

Upload using the FTP client, over the top of the original file on your site.

Visit your homepage, and if the image isn't there, press CTRL-F5 to force a reload.

If you encounter problems, please post the address of your site as this will speed any help.

Hello Jason,

Thank you for your help.

I have successfully downloaded and installed Filezilla.

It looks daunting.

I will get back to you wit more questions, after I've given it a go.

Thank you so much for the support.

Hi All,

Total newbie here. Have been reading all the posts and believe i have followed the instructions to upload my Logo.

Am using the Legend skin and have renamed my Logo to topheader.jpg.

When i have uploaded the file the background colour has changed to that of my Logo,but the Logo is not appearing. The Cube Cart Logo has disappeared though.

I have tried the forced refresh and that has not worked.

Can anyone offer any help ?

www.firstchoicegaming.co.uk

I also have downloaded a skin from this site which i will attempt to try and load after.

Thanks

Ok, it looks like the logo is part of the page background. You should have got some design files with the Skin which will have the green ball, but without the "Company Logo tm" words shown.

If not, I'd advise you to contact the skin designer and ask for these files. The worst case, is that you'll have to rebuild it using a graphics editor...

The logo is part of the header background. I'd advise overwriting the existing files (make a backup first!), with your new design.

The files will be in:

/skins/Project X V1.0/styleimages/backgrounds

(probably!)

I think you need to contact the skin designer for help if you're having problems. I'm sure they will be able to help.

Does anyone have or know where I can find an image file "topheader.gif" for each of the standard skins that removes the CubeCart logo without adding my logo? I.E. continues the CC design but removes the logo? I want to start modifying my site to my look but don't yet have my own logo. Hope this makes sense, but I think it should.

Thanks!

How can I make it so that the logo is a link? So if my customer clicks on it he/she will be taken back to the homepage?

Thanks!

Can I move it or make the background to it transparent?

You can find a variety of skins in the third-party forum: CubeCartForums.org
