• Joomla 3.6.5
  • Helix 3

I am using this template and what I am trying to do seems like it should be simple.

Currently I am displaying a logo similar to the default template, however I would also like to include a few words of text below the logo (the site slogan).

I can't find anywhere to do this, I have been searching through the code for specif <div> and id names but to no avail. I'm not sure what php file to edit.

In the Helix template settings I can only select to either show a logo or text - not both.

The html logo code (as you can check for yourself) is as follows;

<div class="col-xs-8 col-sm-3 col-md-3" id="sp-logo">
    <div class="sp-column">
        <h1 class="logo"><a href="/2015/helix3/"><img alt="Helix3 Framework" class="sp-default-logo" data-pin-nopin="true" src="/2015/helix3/templates/shaper_helix3/images/presets/preset1/logo.png"><img alt="Helix3 Framework" class="sp-retina-logo" height="48" src="/2015/helix3/templates/shaper_helix3/images/presets/preset1/[email protected]" width="145"></a></h1>

Helix don't provise free support which is why I'm here.

Any ideas?

  • Link to the template is broken :)

  • I've just tried adding a span inside the <a> in the web inspector and it's working perfectly fine. Are you sure you're editing the correct file? I think it should be plugins\system\jat3\jat3\base-themes\default\blocks\header.php

  • Oh balls, sorry. Wrong file. Try templates/shaper_helix3/features/logo.php

  • Oh really? I just downloaded the template and features directory was part of the template. Would you be able to zip up the template so I can take a look?

The file I had to edit was located at templates/shaper_helix3/features/logo.php (thanks to @Lodder for a point in the right direction!).

In this file at around line 56 you will see that start of the logo html code. It's possible to add custom html here.

p.s - I initially couldn't see the templates/shaper_helix3/features directory as I was using Netbeans and my project had become corrupted. I removed the project and set it up again and the directory was there - strange but it worked.
