    • Joomla! template JSN Gruve Configuration Manual ©Favicon configurationFavicon is a small icon positioned on the left of the address bar of your browser. By default, Joomla! has an icon asshown on the screenshot below. Default Joomla! faviconOn your website, you might want to use your own icon, like the one we are using on our site joomlashine.com. JoomlaShine faviconHere are instructions on how to do that:Step 1: Create your own favicon fileTechnically, favicon is a regular 16px * 16px icon file with exact name favicon.ico. In most cases, favicon is thesized-down version of the company logo saved in the icon format. In some cases, the logo is too specific andfavicon needs to be built from scratch.You can use some professional icon editor software like Axialis IconWorkshop and Iconcool Editor or to use onlinefavicon generators. The first method gives you better quality, but takes more effort. The second method is easier,but the quality is not the best.Step 2: Upload favicon file to your serverAfter you’ve got the favicon file, it’s time to upload it to your server. You need to upload the icon file to templatefolder overwriting the default file. This is the folder joomla_root_folder/templates/jsn_Gruve_XXX/, whereXXX is the template edition. 23
    • Joomla! template JSN Gruve Configuration Manual ©If you have permission problems while using FTP, then we strongly recommend you use a great Joomla! extensioncalled JoomlaXplorer. And you don’t need to declare logo width/height anywhere. Template will automaticallypresent it as it is.If you don’t see your new icon, that doesnt necessarily mean you did anything wrong. Browsers are designed tominimize data traffic, so they dont refresh the favicon every time they show a page. Even refreshing the page (F5)won’t help. So you need to refresh more thoroughly:  Mozilla / Firefox / Safari: hold down Shift while clicking Reload, or press Ctrl-Shift-R (Cmd-Shift-R on Apple Mac)  Internet Explorer: hold Ctrl while clicking Refresh, or press Ctrl-F5  Konqueror: simply click the Reload button, or press F5  Opera: users may need to completely clear their cache in Tools -> Preferences  Chrome: Shift-F5If this doesnt work, you will need to delete the temporary internet files and history and then open your page again. 24
    • Joomla! template JSN Gruve Configuration Manual ©LogoThe logo JSN Gruve is the default sample logo and you should replace it with your own. Technically, logo is animage file called logo.png located in folder joomla_root_folder/templates/jsn_Gruve_XXX/images/, whereXXX the template edition you have.You can manually choose your own logo file via template parameter Logo File. Additionally, you don’t need todeclare logo width/height anywhere. Template will automatically present it as it is.When the logo file is ready, you can set up the following parameters:  Logo Link – Set URL where the logo image should link to. You can set here:  Absolute link like http://www.joomlashine.com  Relative link starting from Joomla! root folder like index.php Leave this parameter empty if you do NOT want your logo to be clickable at all.  Logo Slogan – Set the slogan text to be inserted to the logo image attribute alt. Text in alt attribute is visible to screen readers (good for accessibility) and search engines (good for SEO).  Enable Colored Logo – Define if you want to use special colored logo for each template color. Colored logo file is located under folder images/colors/{color_name}/ inside the template folder.Set up rich-media logo via module in position “logo”JSN Gruve provides a module position called logo, where you can put any Custom HTML module with rich-medialogo. Another advantage is that you can create multiple modules with different logos and display them in variouspages using the menu-module assignment feature in Joomla!.Attention!If template detects that there are some module presented in position logo, then it will disable default logo with alllogo parameters: Enable Colored Logo, Logo Link and Logo Slogan. 25
