Replacing the default logo with your own

  1. Create/acquire your logo:

    It will need to be scaled to the size that you want, say about 100px by 100px
  2. Go to the Site Setup control panel > Site ;
  3. Click "Browse..." under the Site Logo section;
  4. Browse, select and open your logo;
  5. Click save at the bottom; and
  6. voilá!
