Hi,

The simplest possible way is to replace the logo image with an image of the same size and with the same name and type but with the content of your choice. This way no coding is required.

Good luck,

Go to your root, then to the images folder and you'll have joomla_logo_black.jpg and powered_by.png
Simply browse through the folders and replace each logo you want with your logo. It as simple as that.

Go to
templates/ your template / images/
and replace each joomla logo inside

Hopefully, this will solve your problem.

Is there a way to see configuration of Joomla?  To see which template I am using and where the images are?

The images are stored in the images folder of your template.

templates folder is located on the root folder of your joomla installation.

To see what template you are using log on to your administrator page. It's: your url /administrator
Then click on the Extensions menu then on Template Manager. Here you can see your default template being indicated by a star. Then go to the folder named like your template in the templates folder and replace the joomla logo with your own. That should do it.

Good luck,

Hi,

Once again, replace the picture templates/yourtemplate/images/header_short.jpg with your logo.
Make sure it is the same SIZE and TYPE as the old one or else it won't work. The name should be the same.
If you aren't sure of the template you are using then replace it for all the templates present. Anyway don't forget to make a backup to the old one. It's pretty simple. I don't see the prroblem :).

Good luck,

By the way,  the name could differ according to your joomla version.
So, visually inspect the picture and see if it is the logo.

Other version is called: mw_joomla_logo.png

This is in order not to modify any css or anytthing else.

Also, try to clear the cache of your browser. It might retain the old picture instead of the new one.
