Background - header image and Logo

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

I really like the layout of the Corporation template but like the Venture template, I would like the background image used for the header to rotate between a number of images.

Is this possible?

I have been stuck before with other templates that would have been perfect for websites I needed to create but unable to use multiple images.

Would be good if you had the functionality in all templates to be able to do this.

Forgot to add - have played around with the logo as well by using my business logo but it doesn't work very well with images - just text.

I have found this with a number of templates with lots of tweaks to try and get my logo in.

Most businesses would want their logo instead of the business name in text - think you really should cater for this in all templates and make it easy to add rectangular and square shaped logos.

Any ideas how I can get my logo (square) on this template - branding is very important.

Hi

With corporation the image covers the entire background of the site not just the header / logo area

I'm not sure how you have the opacity setting (next to the background image setting)
Opacity of main content area overlay (%)

but that may be the reason it looks like its just a header image

Regarding the logo it's difficult to fit all users requirements on this one

If the issue is that the logo is on a solid background colour I'd consider changing the logo / menu row to having the same colour background as the logo using CSS

Also perhaps adjusting the opacity setting for the background

Square logos can be quite problematic as they can look a bit odd dimension wise I've found so I've always tried to get clients to consider tweaking the layout to more rectangle based dimension

In returning to your original first question - it isn't possible using the template settings to have a full screen animated slideshow

It would slow the site down a bit

If you are still interested I could ask the developers to see what they say?

Don't really want to tweak a logo we've had for a long time - need to keep the brand consistent. It is a square one so I need to work around that.

The templates appear to always be text based with regards to logos and there is a lot of tweaking to make graphic logos fit the templates. Just think the templates should take into account that many out there want a graphic logo on their site.

Re the background slide show like the Venture Template - its a nice to have but I will think more about it and whether I could get away with it.
Thanks

Going to play around with it a bit more - try and reduce the height of the Slogan (black band across the top) and make the image more visible at the top (increase the real estate for it) - might help with the logo which appears sitting over the black band and image at the top.
