View Full Version : Logo and Banner not recognized

08-15-2003, 05:25 AM

I have a strange problem. I am using the aabox download (very nice, thanks). I have replaced in header.php the oscommerce.gif with my own logo.gif but when viewing the file the oscommerce.gif is still the one that shows. Yet, if I rename my logo.gif to oscommerce.gif then it works. I realize that this is the simple fix but I want to know why something is not working when it should.

Secondly, I deleted out the code in footer.php for the osc banner and the same thing it still shows!!

How can this happen. I am so confused! :?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Here is the code I am using for both of the above problems.


<td valign="middle"><?php echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'dobie.gif', 'DobieDay') . '</a>'; ?></td>

This happens because those files are no longer used to control the look of osC.

You need the edit the files in the /catalog/templates directory:


Almost EVERY cosmetic change is handled by the files in this dir and the sub-directories.

I just figured this out.

I was coming back to tell everyone to ignore my post.

Thanks for the answer anyway. It may help someone else down the road.

Am I am missing something here?? I have used the mainpage template before to replace the logo on my page ... just as mentioned above ... but now I have a new company logo ... when I change the mainpage template to show the new GIF file, it does not recognize it ... it still looks for and displays the old file.

Anyone know what I might be missing?

Thanks!! :oops:

Forget that last post, I am a moron!! :roll:

I was editing the wrong code ... I've been staring at PHP for way too long!!

I have edited the mainpage template. However, if I click on Gift Voucher FAQ, the logo and icons on the header of the page revert to the unedited ones. I guess Gift Voucher FAQ doesn't for some reason use mainpage template. Do I need to make the changes for the logo & icons in some non-template file as well?
