I'm trying to override the Administrator template ISIS in Joomla 3.4. I am simply trying to replace the default Joomla logo's with my company logos so that it's branded for my customers. I want to override this file:


So I made a copy of joomla.png and branded it with my logo instead of Joomla.

Now I tried these folder configurations for override, but none of them work:




What is the correct way to override the Administrator template image files? Thank you!

You don't need to perform an override for this, it's a simple parameter change.

Go to:

Joomla backend >> Extensions >> Template Manager >> Isis

Then go to the Advanced tab and you will see 2 parameters to change the logo.

The first one changes the logo that you see in the top right hand corner of the admin template and the second parameter changes the logo you see on the admin login page.
