How to change background and logo?
« on: February 06, 2011, 08:16:52 pm »

My gallery has the default coppermine logo, and normal background.

How do I change this?

I know nothing about Coppermine ;(

what you need to do is find the theme that most closely resembles the look and feel of what you'd like to see

install that one

i've found the easiest way of developing your site whether its coppermine, wordpress or whatever is to run it as a localhost first, then once you have the basic styling then install on your server hosting (but it depends on how much you want to get into customising your install)

wampserver is an excellent way of setting up this up on your own machine (mamp if you are on a mac)

anyway, once you have your theme you will end up with a folder called "theme you chose" and a template.html file - that shows the barebones of how the page pulls in various parts of the overall theme

if you want to delve into to it properly use firefox and get yourself the web dev toolbar - under the "css" drop down menu is an option "view style information" when you click on that, anything you then click on the web page will show you the properties and the line number in the css that corresponds to whatever section you clicked on - this makes working out somone else's stylesheet much easier :)

bottom line is that if you want to start customising your install - you need to say which theme you are using as there are loads and they all work slightly differently

for example - in the curve theme if you look at line 34 in template.html you can replace the image with whatever, in the rainy_day theme the logo is done differently as again is the eyeball theme...
