I am new to using Magento other than basic data entry but I cannot figure out how to change the header logo on my current magento skin. I even tried to do it on the cpanel with no success...how do I change it?
You can find the call for the logo img source in your themes header.phtml file. In this file you will find:
<img src="<?php echo $this->getLogoSrc() ?>" alt="<?php echo $this->getLogoAlt() ?>" class="large" /> <img src="<?php echo $this->getLogoSrcSmall() ?>" alt="<?php echo $this->getLogoAlt() ?>" class="small" />
The getLogoSrc() function is looking for a value in system/configuration/design/header/logo_src. In this config you can define the path to your logo relative to your skin directory.
