Gantry sets the dimensions of the logo, so CSS modification is unnecessary.

Logo Editing Requirements

  • Adobe® Fireworks: CS5 is preferred, but CS3/4 will be sufficient.
  • Logo Font: Download and install before proceeding to edit in Fireworks.
  • Source File: Download the logo-source.png file from the rt_syndicate_j15-sources.zip package.

Step 1 - Open the File

  • Open the logo-source.png file in Adobe® Fireworks.

Step 6 - Uploading

  • Upload logo#.png to the /templates/rt_syndicate_15/images/logo/*style*/ directory
  • Clear your browser cache and refresh your site.
