    I suggest you look at this skin - http://xdnewblue.dnnskins.com - it is an updated version of this one and has had some vast improvements, such as - changing the background image on the montage - so you can put your logo in it.

    Hi Nina,

    I'm totally new to DNN and even newer to skins. I downloaded and installed the NewBlue skin (BTW it's beautiful - nice job!). However, I'm having trouble knowing how to insert my own logo for the flash version.

    What specifically do you mean by the montage (which file or files?). I've tried changing clear_logo.gif but it hasn't had an effect.

    Thanks in advance!

    Ken

    Oh yeah, I'm using DNN5 with the updated skin for same, if it makes a difference.

    Hi Ken

    just change the background image - the flash affect is a clear file that sits over the top, so open the skin folder where the skin is, and you'll see the background image - open that in photoshop or fireworks and add your logo to it and save - it will then show through the flash.

    does that help?
    glad you like the skins - we have more coming out in the next month.

    glad you like it - I like seeing people benefit from using DNN - so a good skin here or there doesn't go astray.

    Hi Nina,

    Yay! I found it (header.gif) and it couldn't be easier. I love the flash effects!

    The great look of this skin has inspired me to move one of my existing volunteer web apps into the DNN framework. It'll look so much better than it currently does and have all the DNN features to boot!

    Thanks again,

    Ken
