Change Header Logo

Change the header logo…

Change The Header Logo – short transcript of the video

Login into the Backend of your site.

Go to Appearance>Cronus Theme Options.

I’m going to change out Jim Bob’s header logo with another director’s logo, Pam Bouie. I have not uploaded Pam’s logo yet, so that’s what I’m going to do first.

Click the reset button to delete the URL for Jim Bob’s logo. Now I’m going to upload the image for Pam’s logo from my computer. I’m going to click on upload image, and then I’m going to choose to select the file from my computer.

I navigate to the location on my computer where I saved Pam’s logo. I can double-click it or I can select it and click open at the bottom of the window.

It uploads and then when it’s done, I make sure full size is selected, and then click to Use the image. It automatically puts in the URL for Pam’s logo. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page…it’s a long page…and click save.

If I go back to the media library, I see that the header logo has been added there.

I’m going to go to the Frontend of the site and now I see that I have put Pamela Bouie’s logo at the top of the page. If the Frontend is already open, refresh the page to see the changes.

  1. I love starch! And I pretty much starch everything before I cut it. It keeps your fabric from warping underneath a hot iron. You can't beat that! Thanks so much for this recipe!

    should I expect automaticlly that Michellle will send logos out to use or do I have to request them?

    • Great, Wendy! I have requested that Michelle resend your logos. You might also check your spam folder. If you don’t get them today please let me know!

          • Wendy, you had uploaded the large version of the logo used for print. I uploaded the logos for your website…they have the word web in their file name. Go to your media library, click on logo, copy the link and paste where the tutorial shows you. Let me know if you need further assistance. Be sure to check your spam often…important emails sometimes make their way in there.

    • Debbie, Michelle sends out logos with terms of use. She will probably send them Monday. I emailed you your web logos so you would have them before Monday.

    I am at the point where I change header and footer logos. I’m having trouble finding one to upload as my own. In the media library, I only see Jim Bob.

    • Hi Pamela,
      Michelle emails your logos with a terms of use letter about the time your website becomes available to you. I have resent your logos to you via email.

  4. Jan, it is Donita again,

    I reads in a previous comment that logos were to be sent to me from Michelle. I have not received any logos and my site has been up since December. Please advise.

    • Donita,
      Michelle usually sends logos around the time you receive notice your website is ready. With that said, she could have missed sending yours or they may have gone into spam. I will send your logos by email in a few minutes.

  5. Jan,

    I am just starting to work on my website. I attempted to change my header logo; however, it appears to still be Jim Bob’s logo but my name is in the URL. Please advise.

    • Donita,
      On your site the logos will be Jim Bob’s logos until you upload your logos and make the change.

  6. Is anyone else having an issue of their changes not being saved? I have attempted to upload my header probably about 10 times, but it never saves. When I go back to the screen, the logo box is completely empty. I am computer savvy and have watched the video about 10+ times making sure I have not missed any steps. Someone help, please.

    • Ahesha, I just answered your email about this but I will answer again here in case others have this issue.

      I’m sorry you had trouble with the header logo. I’m not sure what went wrong when you tried to save. I went to your media library. You had uploaded your header logo quite a few times. I deleted all but one of them. I copied the URL for your logo and pasted it in Appearance>cronus theme options. I was able to Save without any issue. Your header logo is now on your website. As I said earlier, I’m not sure what happened when you were trying to save.

      You have uploaded your footer logo and it is in the media library. You should be able to get the URL for it there and paste it where the footer logo tutorial shows you.

      Please let me know if you have other issues or need my help.

  7. Hi Jan.

    I am watching your directions to change the header from Jim Bob to my name, but your video content does not match the dashboard options. I finally figured out the cronus options but when I upload the image, I do not have the CTE website downloaded on my desktop. How am I to change the logo? Could you please advise me through this process?

    Thank you.

    • Janet, I uploaded your logos and put them on your site. If you want more explanation on how to do it let me know. Please don’t spend a lot of time trying to figure something out. Let me know…I usually answer fairly quickly. Also let me know if something else looks different to you than what’s in my tutorials. ~Jan

  10. Hi. Have uploaded header logo and checked “Large” for the sizing..not “Full” size. Both of these logos collide with the “Join Our Mailing List” message. Please advise.

    • Jackie,

      You made this comment on the Footer tutorial page and I think you were referring to your comment here on the header logo:
      OK. I fixed it. Used “medium logo.” Fits.
      TY
      (I will remove that comment on the footer page so it won’t be confusing to others).

      Actually you uploaded the wrong header logo. You uploaded the one for printing which is a huge file and shouldn’t be used on your website. It takes much longer to load. You should upload the header logo that has the file name of:
      Boddie-Jackie-web-header.png Before you upload, however, you should go to Media>Library and click on the header logos you uploaded and delete them. Then upload the correct header logo.

      You uploaded the correct footer logo.

      Please let me know if you need help with this!

      • Hi Jan. My header is very small. It looks smaller than the “Join Our Mailing List” tag. I have tried to resize it but am unable to do so. Any suggestions for making it larger. I feel like the logo should stand out and it is much smaller than Jim Bob’s. Any suggestions? Thanks.

        • Donna,

          I think you’ve made a common mistake…I looked at your Appearance > Cronus Theme Options. It looks like you used the logo for printing instead of the one for the web. When I go to your Media > Library and I click on the first logo you uploaded, the one you’re using and the one you see that’s away from the other logos you uploaded, it shows the size of the logo to be 3942 × 421. This is way to large for the web…it’s being shrunk down to fit the header space. I see you’ve uploaded the web version as well. Try one of those. If you click on one of them you see the size is 440 × 67. I think your results will be much better. I would delete the logos you uploaded except for the one on the left…which would be the last one you uploaded. Just click on the one you want to use…copy the URL and paste it into the header logo area in Appearance > Cronus Theme Options. Make sure the size is 440×67 and has the word web somewhere in the URL.

          Please let me know if you need more help with this.

  11. Pam-
    I am unable to load my logo. It gives me a message that says HTML error. Please advise.

    • Actually I meant Jan 🙂 still getting to know everyone.

      • HTTP error is what I am getting.

        Reply
        • Carolyn, I went into your Media>Library and saw that several logos had uploaded.

          I think you got errors because you are uploading the logo that has the word print-blueLogo in file name. You want to upload the one that has the word web-header in the file name. I deleted the logos that uploaded.

          Please try again and let me know if you still get error messages.

    • Hi. How do I find the headers and footers and logo for my site? I looked in the media area/library and I don’t see them. Please assist. Thank you.

      • Jacqueline,

        I know I answered this by email but I want to answer here so others can see….

        Logos are sent out by Michelle around the time your website is ready for your use…they may be sent a day or two before or occasionally a day or two after your site is ready. Anyone who doesn’t get them by a couple of days after should email me.

        • Thanks I look forward to receiving my logo from Michelle.

          • No Jan I have not received my logo.
            I look forward to personalizing my site.

          • Patt, you should get it tomorrow, May 11. If you don’t, let me know.

            Jan

          • Thanks Jan – will do!
            Hope you had a nice day!

  12. I can’t get my logo to load. After I select my logo and then click open my screen goes back to the add media files page, but nothing happens….it just says 100% and there is a blue bar. My page doesn’t look like yours and it doesn’t have the URL and other options listed below. What do I need to do?

    • I got it to work!!! Actually, it had nothing to do with me…it just took a bit to load I guess…it wasn’t automatic like your screen on the tutorial. 🙂

    • Diane, I’m glad you figured it out. In my tutorials I sometimes edit out the portion that shows something uploading. The reason I do that is so I can cut down on the total time of my tutorial. There’s no need wasting the viewer’s time by watching something load.

      The media library has 2 views. There’s a button you can click on to see a list view of all your graphics and there’s a button you click on to see a tile view of the graphics…depending on which you like. When I first made the tutorial there was only a list view. I think I address this in the footer logo tutorial. I’m working on updating some tutorials today.

  13. Jan,
    I have the logos copied in a logo folder in my CTE folder on my desktop. I can’t seem to get the header logo to attach. The site says that it cannot be loaded and must be dismissed due to security issues. Any ideas of how to correct what I am doing wrong?

    • Karen, I haven’t seen that happen before. I have emailed your web logos to you again. Save them to your computer and try again. If it doesn’t work, let me know and I’ll help you put them on your website. Please keep me informed on whether you got the logos on your site.
