Try changing the value for the height property in (public_html)/layout/professional/style.css from:
Text Formatted Code
.header-logobg-left {
height:78px;
margin-top:11px;
padding-left:15px;
padding-top:4px;
text-align:left;
vertical-align:middle;
width:50%;
}

to:
Text Formatted Code
.header-logobg-left {
height:232px;
margin-top:11px;
padding-left:15px;
padding-top:4px;
text-align:left;
vertical-align:middle;
width:50%;
}

That should get you started! Big Grin

Hi, i cant find that kind of code in my geeklog style.css file.
Version is (1.4.0sr5-1) , this is not the first time i have to edit some code, but it is just not there, and i can`t change the size of the image. one more question would be how to change type of image. I would like to put a gif or swf in place of this logo.png and i dont know how?



Best regards,
Sasa

I would really recommend upgrading to the latest version of Geeklog (currently v1.4.1).

That said, you are correct, the above code is not found in style.css for GL v1.4.0sr5-1. You will probably want to look at:
Text Formatted Code
.header-logobg-container-inner {
  background:#FFFFFF;
  background:url(images/header-bg.png) #1A3955;
  border-bottom:1px solid #CCCCCC

and change the header-bg.png image to whatever you want, jpg, gif, etc. and make sure you upload the corresponding file to your layout/professional/images folder.

In v1.4.0sr5-1 header.thtml, you can adjust the height by changing the two height properties from 78 to whatever:
Text Formatted Code
                        <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="header-logobg-container-inner">
                            <tr>
                                <td class="header-logobg" width="50%" height="78" align="left" valign="middle">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="{site_url}/"><img src="{site_logo}" width="151" height="56" alt="{site_name}" border="0"></a></td>
                                <td class="header-logobg" width="50%" height="78" align="right" valign="middle"><span class="site-slogan">{site_slogan}</span>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
                            </tr>
                        </table>


Again, I would strongly recommend updating to the latest verison of GL. It should be relatively easy from the version you are running.

Hope this helps!
