We must do logoff/logon to view changes or just wait for cash updating?

Hi LePaul, theorectically you would just copy all the files into your web (root) - directory, add the code to your file that contains the "header" stuff and you should be ok (the file is probalby somewhe in your template folder, static html file, probably called _header_x.html)... The browserconfig.xml and manifest.json help with the client beeing able to download the correct icons. I have not tested this yet!

But I allready like the favicon as it is...I would not spend tooooo much time on this, probalby more important things to do?

I have another question, do you have an officla title, name / subtitle / "logo name", abreviation for the page / site? I might have an idea for the the 149x52 logo... :)

I don't have any ideas...I've been working on plugging any gaps spammers could find and fixing the moderator queue settings (work has been quiet today)

Love to see your suggestions

I put all the graphics in root and I am noticing it looks good on my desktop, laptop and iPhone 6. Please test on your mobile devices (be sure you clear cache)

... concept sketch. What do you think? It's an idea... so maybe we can go from something like that?

(It's transparent, so you should be able to lay it ontop of the blue header and it should look ok.)

Hmmm... it's ok. But a bit twodimensional... on the other hand you should avoid a threedimensional '3', especially in red... :lol:

yeah... it's ok. Could be better... cooler

OF COURSE, I would never design something using the 3D Dimension(er) or so, and if then in BLUE or GREEN... pff :)

I like the logo. For my eyes, just the position of the "Printing Forum" should be aligned with the bottom of the "3D" instead of the top.

At first I couldn't get it to show up...then I recalled it is a PNG so I had to edit the CSS file to look for that :)

I will create a version with what I belive is what you mean. Put the Printing Forum to the bottom and move the 3D upwards?

I would leave the 3D where it is, just move the "Printing Forum" down to cover the lower half of the 3D instead of the upper.

Something like this:

Maybe a little more evenly spaced than my quick butchered sample...
