I am at a total lost as where to start  Huh  I don't know if I am to edit a CSS sheet, or edit the template or both.  I am use to working in Dreamweaver 2004X, can I use this as my editor?  I changed the background from a jpg but now I have stripes at the top and at the bottom it is the same as the default.  I don't know where to put my logo website name and remove City Portal.  I am not even seeing the city portal logo on the files that are installed.  Please help, I have spent way to much time on this and am at a total loss.

Thank you,
Leslie

ps...I cannot for the life of me figure out how to show my pic on my profile on Shape 5.  I uploaded the pic in my profile on Shape 5 but nothing happens.  Did you disable this feature??

Hello Lesile,

Unfortunately with CSS you can't really use a visual editor such as Dreamweaver, most of it has to be done by hand, editing the template_css.css file and then index.php file.  Whatever edits you need help with let me know and I should be able to help.

To edit the city portal logo go to your template_css.css (line 582)

Code:
#s5_logo {
background:transparent url(../images/s5_cityportal_logo.png) no-repeat scroll 0 0;
float:left;
height:73px;
margin-top:14px;
width:237px;
}

As you can see the logo is saved in the images folder, so you would have to navigate to "templates/city_portal/images/s5_cityportal_logo.png"

Looking into the profile pic problem...

Thank you Jonah, one question though, the background image used for City Portal is just a sliver that has the repeat function.  When I edit this in Photoshop and replace it with a different jpg the same size and view it in the browser it just shows stripes in the background.  What did I do wrong?  The image size was the same so I am not sure why it is shows stripes.  Right now I just have a jpg used for the background but the file size is large and loades slower.  I would like to replace the background image that is the default with my own, just minus the stripes.

Thank you for your time,
Leslie

Jonah,

Sorry forgot to ask this question.  I would like to use the default menu in City Portal, not the one with the icons.  I can't figure it out, if you view the sight, seasonsoflife.info, you will see the default on the top and right below it is the image menu.  How do I delete the image menu, and where do I go to to do this?

Thank you again,
Leslie

Would you be able to post a screenshot or URL of this, not exactly sure what you mean?

Jonah,

I see where you can change the template in the css .css, but what is the file path to the index.php?  Is it under the template?  Can I upload my pics with their unique name and use that instead of changing the name of what the template says ie..citylogo_png?  This is confusing to me.  I want to change the graphics for the S5 modules but not sure how to do that, or the fading one in and out below that.  Please help.  I really wish you guys had a call in support team like Go Daddy, this would sure save a lot of time, but I know that is an expense for you all.

Thanks,
Leslie

Leslie,

The path to the index.php file is located below, so yes it is under the template folder:

your joomla install/templates/cityportal/index.php

In regards to changing the name of the logo, yes you can do this and name it whatever you desire but if you do this you must also edit the CSS that outputs the image logo.  So for example the code I pasted above "#s5_logo" is calling the "s5_cityportal_logo.png" image.  If you wanted to call your logo  "leslie.png"  you would have to update the CSS to reflect this so it knows to use the new "leslie.png" image.

What graphics are you referring to with the S5 modules?
