Hi there,
Since I've registered I've got a number of issues with customizing Joomla template I've downloaded (EZ Web Hosting).
I'm not Joomla top expert and I'm only getting familiar with Vertex framework of yours but there are some issues:

- how do you "elegantly" change the logo? Of course, I've swapped the file itself, but as it seems that the width of the logo is fixed and my logo is more of the "landscape" rectangular shape, the template shrinks it to fit the placeholder. How can I override it? Additionally, can I change the proportions between the logo, menu, social media and login/register function much in the way as you set the proportion of another row in Vertex?

- I don't want login/register feature available in the frontend. I've noticed that you can simply delete the associated label in Vortex and it vanishes, but it seems, there still is the empty space forced there.

- Do I understand correctly that "Live Chat" feature is only a mockup? How can I connect my chat plugin to the button of yours?

- Can I change the way the Google Maps plugin labels my location? Change pin's color to be more distinguishable from native Google Maps places, add label more sophisticated than simply address (perhaps name of company) and visible on default instead of after clicking the pin?

I'd be thankful for answers

The CSS for the logo is located below. You can change or remove the width here and height. I recommend removing the height and adjusting only the width as the height will auto calculate anyway:

template.css line 523

Code:
#s5_logo {
    float: left;
    height: 79px;
    margin-left: 0;
    cursor: pointer;
    margin-top: 11px;
    margin-bottom: 6px;
    width: 87px;
}

Can you please post a URL where this is happening? I can then take a look and help you adjust CSS if needed. Thanks

Yes we just have some HTML in a custom HTML Joomla module published there. You can swap the code to something like the following. Then you can link to a page or anchor via the href. Just input whatever URL you desire to active by removing Google's URL:

Code:
<br><a href="http://www.google.com" class="button">Live Chat</a>

In the latest version of this module you can change the pin icon. We have a place to enter in your own URL for a different image. The module will pull whatever address you enter in the backend and display this when you click the pin on the frontend. But there is no way to add a company name unless you edit the module's files.
