Site & Logo

Choose a logo and customize the overall layout of the site.

The Logo is the brand identity of a website. By default, it is always displayed on the top left of each page. This can be changed by choosing a different header layout.

The following settings can be found in the Layout → Site panel of YOOtheme Pro.

Logo Text

Type in the Logo Text that will be used in case no Logo Image from your media library has been picked.

Upload your logo in the SVG file format for best quality on all screens. Alternatively, you can use PNG or JPG in a high resolution so that the logo looks sharp on all displays.

Set the width and height of your logo. Learn more how to resize and crop images in the files and images documentation.

Upload an Inverse Logo with inversed color, e.g. white, for better visibility on dark backgrounds. It will be displayed automatically if needed. Usually, the default logo is black on a transparent background, and the inverse logo is white on a transparent background. This way, a high contrast version of the logo, both on dark and light backgrounds in the theme, can be displayed.

Joomla inverse logo setting

Note An example of where the inverse logo is used is a transparent navbar overlapping the first section of a website that has a dark background.

Select an optional Mobile Logo for the mobile header. It will replace the default logo on smaller screens. It's recommended to upload a simplified logo that leaves out unnecessary details to fit best on mobile devices.

By default, the website expands to the Full Width of the browser window. This includes the background of all sections on your pages. But you can also choose a Boxed Page layout which will wrap all of your page content into a boxed container. By default, the background of the boxed page layout will show a solid color or gradient which depends on your chosen style.

Boxed Page Layout

There are some additional settings for the boxed page layout.

Option Description
Alignment Position the page layout in center.
Top Margin Add the top margin to the page layout.
Bottom Margin Add the bottom margin to the page layout.
Header Position Position the header outside the container.

Layout setting boxed page

Once an image is selected, a button appears to edit further image settings.

Layout setting boxed page

Option Description
Width and Height Set the width and height in pixels. Learn more about image dimensions and responsiveness in the files and images documentation.
Image Size Determine whether the image will fit the page dimensions by clipping it or by filling the empty areas with the background color. By default, the image will not be resized.
Image Position Set the initial background position relative to the page layer. By default, the image is centered.
Image Effect Add a parallax effect or fix the background with regard to the viewport while scrolling.
Image Visibility Display the image only on this device width and larger. This is recommended if the image is not visible at all on a smaller viewport, so it's also not being loaded.

There are three options of how to recolor the image in a different tone.

Option Description
Background Color Use the background color in combination with blend modes or a transparent image to fill the area if the image doesn't cover the whole page.
Blend Mode Determine how the image will blend with the background color.
Overlay Color Set an additional transparent overlay to soften the image by setting a color or a gradient.

Transparent Header

The header can be transparent and overlay the page background. Select whether the header and the navbar have Light or Dark text color. This only applies if the header is positioned outside the page.

The toolbar is only displayed when the toolbar-left or toolbar-right positions have anything to display on the current page. For example, social icons or the search might be configured to show in the toolbar. By default, the content of the toolbar is constrained to the default container width.

Option Description
Full Width Expand the content of the toolbar to the full width of the window.
Center Center the toolbar so the toolbar-left and toolbar-right positions appear in the middle of the page.
Transparency Allow the toolbar to inherit transparency from the header.

Toolbar setting

Note You can publish additional modules in the toolbar positions.

Breadcrumbs are a navigational element for hierarchical page structures. By default, they are hidden. If Display the breadcrumb navigation is enabled, they will show up above the main content of a page, for example when looking at the Blog view.

There are additional options to display breadcrumbs.

Option Description
Show current page Show or hide the current page as last item.
Show home link Show or hide the home link as first item.
Home Text Enter the text for the home link.

This is a shortcut that publishes breadcrumbs on this position. You can also publish a breadcrumbs module on any available module position. Hiding the home link and current page may cause the breadcrumbs to collapse if there is no other link to show.

Breadcrumbs setting

Note This setting won't display the breadcrumbs on pages and templates created with the YOOtheme Pro page builder. Instead, use the breadcrumbs element to publish the breadcrumbs.
