Hello All,

I am trying to find out where I need to go to change the default banner on 2.5.
I have looked for hours, but can't seem to find it.

Needless to say I am a total n00b on Joomla, but I LOVE IT. I am having a lot more success getting my site to look like I want it (other than the banner ;) ) than I ever have using any of the other website design tools.

Thanks,

Craigbert

It depends on the template you are using.

Assuming that you are using the template Beez_20, Joomla!'s default template, the image to replace is personal2.png located in the directory /templates/beez_20/images/personal.


Generally, in these situations you could use the tool FireBug to inspect elements and view the css entries.

The tool FireBug that is available in browsers such as FireFox and Chrome could be used for this purpose. With FireBug you can inspect an element in a web page and find out its css entries and in which file the entries are located. You could even change the css entries to see how it affects the look and feel of your site. Once you are satisfied you could incorporate the changes in the actual file.

Review the document http://docs.joomla.org/Tutorial:Using_Firebug_With_Your_Joomla_Website for more information about how to use FireBug.

Ilagnayeru,

You are obviously used to dealing with many beginners, and I am glad!

Yes, I am using the Beez_20 template. Thanks for pointing me to the spot and to the use of FireBug. I will go there promptly as I can it is a much needed tool.

Thanks again.

Craigbert
