#69 - Change logo in Joomla Admin

Sometimes it may be desirable to replace the Joomla logo with your own customised logo in the administration panel. These can be easily done by manually changing some images in the administration template.


Joomla 3

Using the template manager, using FTP or using the CPanel file manager, go to the ISIS template files, find the images folder and replace the files with a version of your own. Ideally, don't change the names, so don't you don't need to change any code, just rename your new logo to the logo.png and the other names of the files and replace them.

Joomla 2.5

Using FTP go to the following directory administrator\templates\bluestork and open index.php. Find the following line and remove it completely or change it to suit your needs:

 <span class="logo"><a href="http://www.joomla.org" target="_blank"><img src="templates/<?php echo  $this->template ?>/images/logo.png" alt="Joomla!" /></a></span>

Using FTP software or some other way to change Joomla files go to the following directory: \administrator\templates\khepri\images, you will see 3 folders called h_cherry, h_green, h_teal. 

You will find all the header images in these files, select the colour you are using and you can replace the images with the new logo images of your choice,

Please note keep the images the same dimensions or you will have to change several bits of code throught the site and CSS. Ideally if you want to change the logo only, keep it the same size, since the template has been designed for that size, and it usually looks best at that size...
