Change Logo in Footer

Hello Folks,

I have a clickable logo in my sites footer...and I would like to update/change the logo image. I thought I'd be able to figure it out...but having some difficulty.

Below is a screenshot of the current logo as it appears on the live site...and the code from the footer/html file controlling it.

Can anyone give me some pointers on how to swap out the current logo in the screenshot for a new logo?

Thanks much.

Look for "logo2" and "powered-by" CSS class and edit them.

Hello Seven Skins. I did exactly what you suggested before posting...I searched my server for those 2 terms:

- When I search for "logo2" I find nothing.
- When I search or "powered-by" I get 2 items...but when I look at the code in each of them...there doesn't seem to be anything there that helps. Unless this "power-by" file has references to other files that may eventually lead me to something I can edit to make the change.

I find it very strange I can't find any file called "logo2".

If there's any info I can add that may help...I would be more than happy to post it.

Thanks

Thanks final kloss for the suggestion.

When I replace the original statement from the screenshot in post #1 with the statement you suggested (without the class="logo2 powered-by" part)...this is what I get (before & after)...see attachments.

The link in red still goes to the same webpage...and the logo is gone. The problem is...when I search my server (all files):

- I cannot find anything for "logo2".
- I can find something for "powered-by"...but when I look at the code in this file...there isn't anything in it referring to any sort of logo or "logo2".

Thus if I wanted to replace the current logo with a different logo...I don't know where to insert the file name for the different logo image file.

My understanding is some of this is controlled via css...but as mentioned...I can't find the css that's defining this part of the footer.

Basically I'm not really too concerned about what's there currently. I just want to display an updated clickable link logo (in place of the current logo)...and at the same time maintain the size & position of the logo in the footer of the page.

Thanks

Excellent suggestion. Unfortunately I did this yesterday...and painstakingly searched the directories for anything related to this. There are lots & lots of theme & css directories to search...and I can't seem to find anything related to this.

In one of the attachments above it says..."logo2 powered-by". I searched the server (all files)...and it comes up with nothing for "logo2"...it does get 2 hits for "powered-by"...but these file's don't contain any code that seems to relate to this footer image.

Thanks

Hello all. Found the answer to the problem...credit goes to member final kaoss!

final kaoss suggested searching the vBulletin .css templates for the statements referenced in the footer.html file...and bamm...that's where the file name of the footer image I wanted to change was referenced.

Thus I uploaded the new footer logo image I wanted to use...made the changes in the vBulletin .css template...saved the changes...and eureka...the new logo image I wanted appeared!

Also wanted to thank Seven Skins for all the help as well!

Thanks guys...really appreciate the help!!!
