Reviewed the site and it looks like the following two image files are missing.

(a) water.jpg located in the directory \templates\rt_solarsentinel_j15\images\background\grey

(b) webbanner.png located in the directory \templates\rt_solarsentinel_j15\images\header\blue

For future reference: Tools such as FireBug (https://docs.joomla.org/Using_Firebug_W ... la_Website) would be of help in these kinds of situations.

I would suggest looking in the parameters of the template.

It looks like the css entries are missing.

You could change the following css entry in he file template.css located in the directory \templates\rt_solarsentinel_j15\css.

Code: Select all

/* This is the Main template logo, Edit this to match the width and height of your new logo image */
#logo {width: 280px;height: 65px;}
As the comment specifies, change the value of the attributes width and height to match your logo image size. Be known that your logo image size is 725px X 179px.

Note:
Make a copy of the file before editing it.
