    Thumbs up How to change logo in magento?

    As you start to customize your newly installed Magento 1.6 webstore, you'll probably want to change the logo that displays in the top right section of the header on each page. This can be easily accomplished in the Magento 1.6 Admin Panel at any time.

    Uploading your logo to Magento



    In Magento 1.6, to change the logo you simply have to specify a new URL path to the logo. If you want to place the logo in the same folder as the default one, you'll have to use cPanel's File Manager or FTP. Each logo is relative to the template you are using. If you change the theme on your website, you'll have to upload the new image.

    While this may sound complicated, it keeps the files and folders of Magento organized.


    With your FTP program (in this example we'll use FileZilla), go to the root folder of Magento

    • Go to skin/frontend/default
    • From here you'll need to select the template you are using. Currently we're using the "modern" template so we'll click on that folder
    • Now, click on the images folder
    • Select the logo file, and upload the file


    Setting the path to the logo in Magento



    Now, that you have uploaded the image of your logo to Magento 1.6, we'll need to tell Magento where it is. Changing the file path or URL to your logo in Magento 1.6 is easily accomplished in the Magento Admin backend




    • Log into your Magento Admin Panel
    • Go to System ->> Configuration
    • Click on "Design" in the left side menu pane
    • Open the "Header" section
    • Change the file name in the "Logo Image Src" to the file name you just uplaoded. Leave theimages/prefix alone
    • Click "Save Config"



    Now, when you visit your website, your new logo should be displayed in the upper left of the header of the paghe

    An important information to share. Here is an another way to change the logo on Magento platform:

    Doing it properly will mean your change won't get overridden by a possible update carried out later on. It's a bit of a different process to doing this in the back-end than the front-end. But follow these steps and you can do it without touching core code.

    Firstly, you're going to need to make a module in order to do it. Make your module, call it whatever you want and in your config.xml add this

    <stores>
    <admin>
    <design>
    <package>
    <name>skin_name</name>
    </package>
    <theme>
    <default>skin_name</default>
    </theme>
    </design>
    </admin>
    </stores>

    Replace skin_name with something that makes sense. Then create this folder, replacing skin_name again:

    {magento root}/skin/adminhtml/default/skin_name/images

    Now, in the images folder you can create a GIF file named logo.gif which will override the default one. logo.gif is specifically stated in the adminhtml templates so if you want to change the file type/name you'll need to override the template that references the logo too.
    Optional - Changing the file name/type

    If you do want to change the image used, create this folder (same deal with replacing skin_name):

    {magento root}/app/design/adminhtml/default/skin_name/template/page/

    And create header.phtml within that folder. Copy the contents of:

    {magento root}/app/design/adminhtml/default/defaut/template/page/header.phtml

    and replace:

    <?php echo $this->getSkinUrl('images/logo.gif') ?>

    with your chosen image, located in the skin you created earlier like this:

    <?php echo $this->getSkinUrl('images/my_shiny_new_logo.png') ?>

    The knowledge you shared is very useful in order to create an eye catching logo and Changing the logo in Magento isn't so comfortable. You can replace the logo with your company's logo..
