Logo image URL: (leave blank to show forum name or default logo.)

What is  the ideal size for the Logo image?

I'm using the default theme, and need to ensure that it looks good on both desktop and on mobile devices.

Thank you.


P.S. I love the logo image on this site, good job.

The one on this site is 475px × 108px. I was on my phone on this site all day today and it looked real nice. SMF resized it very well. I wouldn't huge though as it might skew the view.

LandyVlad

Well that'd be the problem then !  :)

Just an idea for board icons, just replace the boardicons.png

That's pretty slick Les. Nice job. 8)

LandyVlad

Les that is super trick !

I have another logo but need it modified / extended into one including the forum name - one made just like the one on this site, size wise, but in 'light' colours

If you are able to help me, gratis, PM me your email addy,

Those are good ! With the first one the letters are a little too vertically elongated.
and with the second the font is trying just a little too hard to be 'digital' if you see what I mean.
Is that original artwork (the drone image itself?)

I've emailed you. But seems you already grabbed the logo off the site, anyway see my email comments too !  :)

Those board icons - are they set up in such a way that as per the default behaviour there is a difference between new posts and no new posts in that board?

lesmond

they are setup for standard smf board icons, if that makes sense.

LandyVlad

AH yeah I think it does,  So basically there are 4 which replace the standard ones, so essentially all boards would have that same icon, yes?

Yes, unless there is a new post or redirect, you can see them here http://host-for.com/smf/index.php

Hey, that looks awesome. Great work for sure.

lurkalot

I never really got to grips with making logos, so whenever someone asks I give it a go myself as a bit of practise, don't usually post them though. You can see why. lol..

Crap load better than I could do. :)

lurkalot

Thanks Les. I don't use PhotoShop which is probably something I should do for this stuff.

They probably look better against the background colour.  Made those from scratch out of random shapes and added the text, then gave them a bit of bevel effect.

Now that's just not true.  Do you know, I tried to make a logo similar to the one you have at the top of this site, and failed miserably, just couldn't do it and it looked bloody awful.. lol..

Bigguy

That logo is real old, lol. I doubt I can do that again. I got lucky. ;D

lesmond

So I packaged the theme up if anyone wants to try it  :dontknow obviously made for landy's site. this is for 2.1 RC1 not tested on 2.0.15

logo is in images/theme you can add it to current theme under Logo image URL:

using this link, replace your-url with your own
