    Joomla Header
    I downloaded a free joomla template from joomlaweb.com and successfully installed it. My site is ready to roll....except for one little problem. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the "Joomla Web" header out and my web name in. It's driving me nuts and I'm afraid that the answer is right in front of me. The name of the template I'm using is JW Getty if that helps.....

    It's a logo in the css,a file called mw_joomla_logo.png in the images.
    You will need to make a logo the same size as it and replace it with the same name or edit the css to point to the name of your logo.

    I had to google to find the way to do it, with some help of a freind here.

    Hope that helps.

    also this one you might want to change also joomla_logo_black.jpg

    Going Crazy
    - Changed CSS...didn't work
    - Changed logo (png)...didn't work

    The CSS file for the template says "unwritable"...could that be why nothing I do is working?

    Yes, the directory has to be writable.
    If you have cPanel you can change that directory file permissions to 777 temporarily to modify it.
    Be sure to change it back tho when you're done.

    Thank you ever so much for your help. I'm still struggling with it...I changed the file permissions to 777 and it still shows unwritable....I sent a note to the website asking for their help. Hopefully, they can help this noob.

    The Joomla forums at the Joomla site are extremely detailed and this exact problem is covered there.

    I've run into the same problem. Make sure you are editing the css for the correct template design. Some Joomla templates have variations (color, placement, etc.) and each variation has css that is similar; you could have edited the wrong set of css for the template variant you are working on.

    ARe you creating permissions through ftp or CPanel/ or Plesk? You must set permission in Plesk or Cpanel. If you still having problems contact your hosting company.
