Change Geeklog on header to my website name.


So, I finally got my site working... whew! But, the top bar still has the name geeklog. Which, hey, let's admit that geeklog rules, but I would much prefer having my website name there. Anyone know how to swap it out? I noticed it does put my summary in the blue header... but not my web page name.

You need to edit the header.thtml file. Found in your layout folder.

First use the sizes there to create the picture you to replace it with. Its easier if they are the same size. Then just relink the image to your new one. It should work.


Ok, I found that I need to replace {site_logo}, but where in all these files does it define what {site_logo} is? Also is there some sort of text search that I can use, when I need to locate stuff like this?

{site_logo} is defined as the URL to the file "logo.gif" in your theme's "images" directory. So you can either replace that file or remove the {site_logo} and use a plain ol' img tag.

bye, Dirk
