using step 5.1 of "The Look" ("Journal Homepage Header")

Postby BobStromberg » Tue Aug 27, 2013 7:29 pm

My managing editor and I are both new to OJS. We are both having problems using step 5.1 of "The Look" ("Journal Homepage Header") to edit banner. We want to change the title image, the title text, and the background color (a gray-green, rgb(170,187,170)).

The entries in the fields in step 5.1 do not match the displayed elements of the banner (a short gif, 241 pixels wide and the text "Electronic Journal of Communication" without the word "The").

I cannot see how to edit the background color. I suspected that step 5.6 ("Journal Layout") was used, but I don't see how to tailor the background color.

Here is the relevant code as served:

<div id="header">
<div id="headerTitle">
<img src="" width="241" height="33" alt="Page Header Logo" />
Electronic Journal of Communication

In this code snippet I can see the gif for the short logo (241 pixels wide). But I cannot find this logo in our input on "The Look" and I cannot see where the grey-green color is specified anywhere.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bob,

Watch out for the distinction between the homepage setup elements and the journal setup elements; both can be specified on setup page 5 but the former will only be shown on the homepage.

For changing the green header, you'll need to upload a CSS file specifying the change.
