Logo placement

Hi,
The original logo is of a very small size, my client has a logo that needs to be much larger than the original one.
When i use the clients logo in a too small size it will be placed to the top.
If i use one with a larger size it will be placed above and aligned to the right, effectively destroying the look.
What can i do about this, place the logo in a added block and place it in another region or so?

Regards,

DW.

Hi there DW:

Hi there DW:

If you want to do so, then you will need to do it directly on the file sites/all/themes/cars_dealer/templates/page.tpl.php

There you can add the logo right above the header area using HTML code.

Best!!!

Hmm, i am glad i find my way

Hmm, i am glad i find my way around the theme as i do :) any suggestions on how and what html code i should use since i am not so good at that.
Can you also tell me how i can change the background color in the footer? Do i have to change this for every layout, mobile desktop etc..
What about these changes when the theme gets a update, do i loose these?
Yeah.... need to get into Drupal theming also.

Hi there DW:

Hi there DW:

All changes can be made on the file \sites\all\themes\cars_dealer\css-custom\custom.css We will never touch it if we update the source ones. So whatever custom fix you make or whatever you add, ensure to do it there.

About the Logo, only copy the Line 79 of the page.tpl.php file and place it where you need it. Now, on the image source, ensure to use the one of your new logo.

About the background color on the footer, if you inspect it with Firebug, you will find where are the CSS files affecting the colors. This is what I suggest you to do to change it:

1 - Inspect the footer with Firebugand change the HEX values to the one you want.
2 - After you have done this, ensure to COPY all the CSS sentences affecting it (including the CSS selector, the properties change...)
3 - Paste this new values on the custom.css and refresh.

Best!!!

Thank you very much for

Thank you very much for pointing to the custom.css part! that makes things a lot easier. Is this a doublem feature or implemented in other themes also? I used to edit this on the themes css, and keep track of it. In case of a theme update i would loose my settings and apply them again.....
I only stay stuck with the logo part, i pointed the url to my own logo and it will be placed about the home menu, which is great if it stays there :)
But it is not in full with, like the md slider is. Right now it is away from the left and bound to a region which i somehow cannot find. If you could help me with this last one i would be done.

Hi there DW:

Hi there DW:

If your intention is to make the logo and the menu to be wider as the MD Slider is, then you will need to:

1 - Go for the file sites/all/themes/cars_dealer/templates/page.tpl.php
2 - Move the entire header (LINE 76 TO 100) outside the "id-> page DIV". It would be moving it betweeen the lines 74 and 75.
3 - Then you may need to do some CSS adjustments in the css folder of the theme. I mean the files, of course.

Best!!!

The problem I have with the

The problem I have with the logo and my first question on this support forum is from 13-10-2014. It is now more then 2 months since then, and although you provided me with a couple of alternatives by private email, the logo is still not in full with on the homepage i mentioned in the private emails.
I was hoping that you could provide me with a clear solution but you don't reply to my private email anymore.
I am sorry to say so but up till now you're support is not up to par with the great themes you build.
Do you think there is any change you can fix this, one last thing to get this thing cleared?

Hi Dennis:

Hi Dennis:

The logo variant used on mobile devices can be found in sites/all/themes/realestate/logo-mobile.png and the @2x variant for retina devices. It allows you to have a more simplified (or bigger if you want) logo variant for small screens.

Just ensure to change it there.

Best!!
