    How exactly do I add my logo to the template?

    here is my site:

    http://www.vancollc.info

    Trying to add my logo instead of the ja_minisite one.

    Hi

    You should override the logo.png image in this folder templatesja_minisiteimages

    i cannot see your site at that address but only a cpanel login on goDaddy hosting

    Interesting. Let me look into it, it’s weird it’s not showing up.

    Thanks for the info by the way, but where exactly do I find that file? (still learning web dev)

    templatesja_minisiteimageslogo.png if you are using the default theme

    If instead you applied a theme ( orange for example ) then you should check in

    templatesja_minisitethemesorangeimageslogo.png and override your image that should have dimensions 115×63 px

    It is located where your website is located

    Server side if you published your website on an hosted space ( http://www.vancollc.info )
    On your pc if you are working on localhost ( virtual server with xampp )

    I really appreciate the help, I just can’t for the life of me find a way to access those files… is it through joomla! itself or is there another way?

    also: http://www.vancollc.info/portal

    that should give you access to my site.

    You should access these files via ftp client

    Them are hosted on your webspace ( where website is installed )
    So you should have an ftp access for your account , login with it into your folder ( public-html) and change the minisite logo accessing the folder i suggested above and upload your new image

    If you are having problems with it send me via Private Message the ftp account to your website and your logo file and i will update it for you

    actually it is 115 x 63 so you should upload your image with that dimensions

    But you can change dimensions managing them through the file template.css located in your orange theme /css folder

    Find these lines

    h1.logo { height: 63px; width: 115px; }

    h1.logo a {
    background: url(../images/logo.png) 0 0 no-repeat;
    display: block;
    height: 63px;
    overflow: hidden;
    width: 115px;
    }

    So I managed to change the size of the logo accepted to 300×96. The problem I’ve now run into is that my logo fits into the my Home Portal tab but one I switch to another menu item (like my image gallery) the logo size reverts back to the default size:
