Logo Editing

Logo Editing

The following is a step by step guide to customising your Clarion logo image by replacing the logo text with your own organization or company's name and logo.

Gantry sets the dimensions of the logo, so CSS modification is unnecessary.

Step 1 - Open the File

Logo
  • Open the logo-source.png file in Adobe® Fireworks.
  • In the right column, find Layers. Select the Web layers directory and click the eye icon to the left of the logo slice (the green object). This will make the slice invisible so you can edit the file.

Step 2 - Text/Slogan/Icon Editing

  • Double click on the logo text. Now you can edit the text of logo to your choosing. Edit the icon as desired.

Step 3 - Slice Modification

  • Reactivate the Slice in the Web Layers column, this will place a green rectangle over the logo image. Change the size of the slice (or move it) to match the new size if applicable.

Step 4 - Export

  • Now you will want to export the logo. Right click on the image slice and select Exported Selected Slices... from the contextual menu. Export it to your computer.

RocketLauncher Instructions

We always recommend installing a RocketLauncher first to trial and understand the template more efficiently. It must be installed as new, and not over an existing Joomla install.

Step 1 - Upload

  • Download the RocketLauncher
  • Unzip
  • Upload the created folder to your server

Note: You can upload all the files via FTP, or use cPanel or SSH to upload the zip and unzip directly onto the server. Enquire with your hosting provider.

Step 2 - Installation

  • Go to www.yoursite.com/*folder name*
  • Follow the Installation instructions
  • Ensure you click Install Sample Data during installation
  • (J! 1.5) Delete the /installation directory on your server
  • (J! 2.5) Remove the installation folder in the Installation interface
