JA Purity comes as a *.zip - file. To see what is in it, download it to your computer and unzip it. All files are to be found in the ja_purity directory.

Your logo is 207 x 80 pixels or less:

  1. Find the logo files in your ja_purity folder, it is in the images main directory.
  2. Download logo.png and/or logo.gif to see their size, namely 207 x 80 pixels.
  3. Create your image files in the same size, rename them logo.png and/or logo.gif in 207 x 80 pixels.
  4. Load your image logo files into the folder ja_purity/images.

Your logo has different size:

  1. get an image of your logo eg: imagelogo.bmp
  2. use your graphic editor and save it as logo.gif and logo.png
  3. now you have two files!
  4. copy these two files and paste it in templates\ja_purity\images overwrite the previous files
  5. finished
  1. open with a text editor the file templates\ja_purity\css\template.css
  2. about at line 921 you will find:
    /* HEADER
    --------------------------------------------------------- */
    #ja-headerwrap {
    background: #333333;
    color: #CCCCCC;
    line-height: normal;
    height: 80px; <---- EDIT THIS
    #ja-header {
    position: relative;
    height: 80px; <---- EDIT THIS
    .ja-headermask {
    width: 602px;
    display: block;
    background: url(../images/header-mask.png) no-repeat top right;
    height: 80px; <---- EDIT THIS
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    right: -1px;
  3. change these values with your logo height or more.
  4. always in the file templates\ja_purity\css\template.css about at line 957 you will find
    h1.logo a {
    width: 208px; <---- EDIT THIS (same of your logo)
    display: block;
    background: url(../images/logo.png) no-repeat;<---- EDIT THIS (view next step)
    height: 80px; <---- EDIT THIS (same of the header height)
    position: relative;
    z-index: 100;
  5. now if you have chose the height of your header bigger than the height of your logo you have to add this properties to center vertically your logo:
    background: url(../images/logo.png) no-repeat center center;
  6. now using your graphic editor you have to resize the heighy of the following files (same height of your header):
    1. templates\ja_purity\imagesheader-mask.png
    2. templates\ja_purity\styles\header\blue\images\header-mask.png
    3. templates\ja_purity\styles\header\green\images\header-mask.png
  7. finished
