h1. HowTo add a logo to your Redmine banner

You can very easily add a logo to your Redmine banner by modifying your base.html.erb file.
Big thanks to "Chris Miller":/users/758 for showing me how to accomplish this :)

Note: This has been tested using the Squeejee Theme and the Classic Theme.
Note2: if you used apache2 passenger module to install redmine,the location of redmine should be @/usr/share/redmine@ instead of @/opt/redmine@

h2. Edit your @base.html.erb@ file

Example:
<pre>
# nano /opt/redmine/app/views/layouts/base.html.erb
</pre>

Find this line:
<pre><code class="erb">
<h1><%= page_header_title %></h1>
</code></pre>

Add this line directly above:
<pre><code class="erb">
<img src="<%= Redmine::Utils.relative_url_root %>/images/logo.png" style="margin-top: style=&quot;top-margin: 15px; margin-left: left-margin: 15px;"/></code></pre>

The ruby statement @<%= Redmine::Utils.relative_url_root %>@ will produce the relative URI for your redmine installation.

Now it should look like this:
<pre><code class="erb">
</div>

<img src="<%= Redmine::Utils.relative_url_root %>/images/logo.png" style="margin-top: style=&quot;top-margin: 15px; margin-left: left-margin: 15px;"/>
<h1><%= page_header_title %></h1>

<% if display_main_menu?(@project) %>
</code></pre>

h2. Upload your logo

Example using the scp command:
<pre>
# scp logo.png root@example.com:/opt/redmine/public/images
</pre>

You probably should chown the uploaded logo:
<pre>
# chown redmine:redmine /opt/redmine/public/images/logo.png
</pre>

h2. Restart your web server

Examples:
<pre>
# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
# /etc/init.d/httpd restart
# /etc/init.d/nginx restart
</pre>
