Tutorial

You can easily upload and add a logo to your Dolphin 7.1 website in the Administration Dashboard (Backend).

To do so login as the Administrator and go to the Administration Panel.

Find and choose:
Settings
-Basic Settings

Scroll down slightly until you find the "LOGO" section in the center part of the page.

Simply click the "browse" button and locate the image that you want to use on your computer.

You can either uncheck the "Enable resizing" box to upload your logo as is, or check the resizing box and enter your desired width and height.

Then, just click the "Upload" button.

After it is uploaded, it will appear in the top center part of the page in Dolphin 7.1 with either the default uni or alt template. If you are using a 3rd party Dolphin template it might display elsewhere depending on the particular design.

If you upload another image the original will automatically be deleted and replaced with your newly uploaded logo image.

You can also completely remove a logo you uploaded by clicking the delete button.

Tips:
Logo images with transparent backgrounds tend to work better because they will match the Dolphin header background, which is convenient if you switch templates to one with a different background color.

Uncheck the box "Enable resizing" if you want your logo to be uploaded with the exact width and height that it already is (original size).

You can check the "Enable resizing" box and enter the exact width and height that you want it to be resized to.

You might need to try resizing with different width and heights to get your logo to look nice.

The Dolphin 7.1 Administration Logo resizer does a pretty decent job providing you enter a width and height that is proportionate to the original image size.

Logo images will be uploaded to the following directory/folder:
/media/images/XXXXXXX.png / .jpg

They will be named with a random string of numbers.
