where is the site logo control?

 Sorry if this has been discussed, but I haven't found an easy way to search the forums for topics.

I am trying to activate the site logo control and followed the recommended steps from the creating skins documentation on "Where the Site Logo".

I am trying to add a logo to the skin stylevantage.  I added the <portal:SiteLogo runat="server"></portal:SiteLogo> to the Layout.Master and also commented out the code in the style.css:

<!--

.logolist,.pageicons,.skiplink {

display:none;

}

-->

but I don't seem to get the logo control to show up in site settings. I am using version 2.3.1.9.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks Joe,

I guess I just wasn't paying attention to what I was doing.

Ok, so I commented the style.css file the appropriate way and I still don't have the logo control in the site settings.

Any other ideas?

Thanks

Re: where is the site logo control?

Do you have the following set in your user.config file?

<add key="CacheCssOnServer" value="false" />
<add key="CacheCssInBrowser" value="false" />

If not, set them and then touch the web.config (open it and then save it).

You can set these to true after you have completed your skin changes.

HTH,
Joe

Ok, added the suggested code to the user.config file.  opened and saved the web.cofig file.  Still no logo in the site settings.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

After changing those cache settings you may still need to clear the browser cache one time. Visit a different site, clear the browser cache then come back to your site.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: where is the site logo control?

Went to yahoo.com, cleaned everything out by deleting history via internet tools (ie8).  Closed down the browser completely.  New browser, still not logo control in site settings.  I imagine, its something simple I am doing wrong, thanks for your patience with me.

Any other thoughts?

Re: where is the site logo control?

Instead of commenting out that css try changing it to this:

.skiplink {display:none;}

Note, make sure the style.css file you are editing is the one located in /Data/Sites/1/skins/skinname folder not in /Data/skins/skinname, the later is just the skin catalog, when new sites are created skins are copied from there to the /Data/Sites/[SiteID]/skins folder and those are the skins used by the site.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: where is the site logo control?

Ok, progress.  Your suspicion was correct, I was editing the style.css in the wrong fold.

Now, I look in the /Data/Sites/1/skins/skinname folder and I don't have a style.css file?

Should I just copy it from the catalog folder?

Re: where is the site logo control?

Yes, if you upgraded from 2.3.1 version we have re-organized the skin files to make it easier to find things since then so copy all skins form /Data/skins to /Data/Sites/1/skins since you haven't yet implemented a custom skin. Another change is that we are using text links by default now for admin links as aggregate feedback has shown the icons to be less friendly. 

If you prefer the icons you can keep the existing skins in /Data/Sites/1/skins/, but the files are organized differently so its probably stylelayout.css that has the main css.

Hope it helps,

Joe
