custom logo replaced with default after theme upgrade

  • Upgrades overwrite things. Plain and simple. Unless it’s info stored in a database, it will be overwritten. As this is a question about a specific theme and not WordPress itself, you would probably have better luck at the forums for the theme in question. (Located here).

    Since you are also talking about modifications that we don’t have access to (since your upgrade wiped them out) your best bet is to just have your web designer reinstate the graphic and, via email, tell you how to do it yourself should any future upgrades wipe it back out.

    thank you. i have my logo file on my computer, is that what you mean by “it’s info stored in a database”? am i also understanding you correctly to be saying you do not know how to reinstate the graphic? if so i will ask the themes forum that portion of my question.

    Database info is stored in sql (you upgrade WordPress but you don’t lose your data because it’s stored in a database whereas if you change the login logo for WordPress but don’t have it’s value stored in sql then the graphic gets overwritten in the upgrade).

    As far as re-installing the graphic, you didn’t really give much info as to what you really wanted, other than to have your graphic put back in. Ok, great. Where? Are you talking about replacing: http://ecologiclandscape.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/logo.png?

    Then upload your .png to /wp-content/themes/atahulapa/images/.

    Is it not a .png? Open style and search for “logo.png” and then replace that image url with the url to your new graphic. Is that not in style.css? Then the image path is probably coded into… (guessing) header.php. Find it there, replace.

    None of the above? Does your theme have an options page? On that options page does it allow you to upload a new logo? Then do that.
