Newbie Tip – Coffee Mug replacement on default theme

May 1, 2005 Comments Off on Newbie Tip – Coffee Mug replacement on default theme

how to replace the coffee mug logo in the default template with your own logo..a newbie tip is born

Step 1 – you need to upstream/upload your picture (your logo) to the cloud.

Open the radio application > then open the www folder > then open the images folder, you can either place the your image directly into the images folder or create a new folder for your personal pictures. I recently created a new folder inside the images folder called birthday wish list 2005 and then pasted pictures in that folder from my computer.

Step 2 – Deleting the top part of coffee mug image

Open your #hometemplate by going to this page

Read the code source until you located the image ref information – as seen in green below

<body bgcolor=”#FFFFFF” leftmargin=”0″ topmargin=”0″ marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″>
  <table width=”100%” border=”0″ cellspacing=”0″ cellpadding=”0″>
   <tr bgcolor=”#5876AC”>
     <table width=”100%” border=”0″ cellspacing=”0″ cellpadding=”6″>
      <tr align=”center”>
       <td><%radio.macros.editorsOnlyMenu ()%><%if radioResponder.flStaticRendering {return (“<font color=\”white\”>Updated: ” + now + “.”)} else {return (“”)}%></font></td>
     <table width=”100%” border=”0″ cellspacing=”0″ cellpadding=”0″>
       <td width=”112″>

<a href=”“> <%radio.macros.imageref (“/system/images/weblogDefault/header1.gif”)%></a></td>

You are going to deletethe section in green

Step 3 – Replacing the lower half of the coffee mug image with your image

Adding your image to the template (where the second part of the coffee mug image is located)

Next scroll down til you find this image reference (about 9 lines down from the previous image reference in step 2)

<td width=”112″ valign=”top”>

<a href=”“> <%radio.macros.imageref (“/system/images/weblogDefault/header3.gif“)%></a></td>

You are going to delete the section in blue and replace the section in pink with your logo or image

it will look like this when you are done (I used a marble image)

<%radio.macros.imageref (“images/marble.jpg“)%> </a></td>

I should have a marble on my newbie themes test page where the coffee mug used to be
