I have been trying to modify the SoraArticle theme.
Can anyone tell me where the header is located? I am trying to change the header and cannot seem to locate it. It does not appear to be in the site.yaml file.
Secondly, when I change the folders in the user file, the navigation does not seem to update.
Any help or guidance where to find the answers would be greatly appreciated.
Hello @pbassi, so you mean the header that says “SoraArticle”? If so, this is actualy a graphic so you could replace the existing
logo.png file in the
user/themes/sorarticle/images folder. However, to make a change like this that would be always kept even with future theme updates it is best to setup an inherited theme https://learn.getgrav.org/16/themes/customization#theme-inheritance
Regarding the main navigation, this theme does not use a standard approach (where the menu is based on actual pages) but rather looks like it is pre-defined in the
- text: Menu Item
- text: Another Item
- text: One more
- text: Contact
Changing those items in the
site.yaml file should get you going with a custom menu.
Please let me know how things go.
Thank you very much. I was able to change the menu with the info you provided. I also found the code that allowed me to swap out the logo.
When I followed the instructions for creating a child them it seemed to:
break the link to the logo image
Broke the slider that is present at the top
Can you give me some ideas abi=out how to trouble shoot this?
Hi @pbassi, if you can make a ZIP file of your inherited theme and send it to me at paul [at] hibbittsdesign [dot] org I could take a quick look at things.
UPDATE: It looks like the location of the theme’s
images folder is a bit hard-wired. If you copy that folder to your new
mytheme folder I think that could be it.
