Logo Editing

The following is a step by step guide to customising your Diametric logo image by replacing the logo text with your own organization or company’s name and logo.

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

Adobe® Fireworks

The 30-day free trial of this software as well as more information is available here at the Adobe website.

Step 1: Open the File

  • Open the logo-source.png file in Adobe® Fireworks.
  • In the right column, find Layers. Select the Web layers directory and click the eye icon to the left of the logo slice (the green object). This will make the slice invisible so you can edit the file.

Step 2: Text/Slogan/Icon Editing

  • Double click on the logo text. Now you can edit the text of logo to your choosing. Edit the icon as desired.

Step 3: Slice Modification

  • Reactivate the Slice in the Web Layers column, this will place a green rectangle over the logo image. Change the size of the slice (or move it) to match the new size if applicable.


Step 4: Export

  • Now you will want to export the logo. Right click on the image slice and select Exported Selected Slices… from the contextual menu. Export it to your computer.

Uploading the changed files

Once you have successfully edited then exported your new logo, you will need to upload it to your server. This process is best done via a FTP client such as Filezilla
  1. Open your FTP client on your local computer.
  2. Login to your web server where Diametric is installed.
  3. Navigate to the /wp-content/themes/rt_diametric_wp/images/logo/{preset-style}/ directory.
  4. Upload logo.png (and any other logo related images) to this directory (You may need to browse on the local panel in the FTP client to find where you have exported your logo).
  5. Clear your browser cache before viewing such as using the keyboard commands on Windows, Ctrl+F5.

Ensure that you are uploading the correct logo to avoid confusion if it does not change. Also take into account hosting permissions. Sometimes, hosts which are not designed for WordPress may have permissions not suited for the setup, thus, the upload will not be complete. In this case, contact your hosting provider.

Changing the Logo: Logo Picker

There are two methods of changing the logo file itself: manual and via the logo picker.

The Logo Picker

  • Enable Logo and set to Custom at Admin Dashboard → Diametric Theme → Style.
  • Set Logo Picker to either RokGallery or MediaManager, then Select and Save your logo file.

Manual Logo Change

You can still change the logo manually, versus the logo picker.

  • Enable Logo and set Type to Diametric.
  • Upload logo.png to the /themes/rt_diametric_wp/images/logo/preset# directory
  • Clear your browser cache and refresh.

If you cannot see your new logo, ensure you have uploaded it to the right directory and the directory permissions are writeable. Enquire with your hosting provider.
