Default Text Logo Not Working


(Rachel Stratemeier) #1

We do not have a logo for our site and I believe this means that it should default to our site title for a logo? However, I just see the Discourse logo. I don’t have any images uploaded in any of the logo settings, and am on the latest version of the software (414aa1f) at the time of this post.


Use a text logo instead of an image logo

After the recent changes in logo settings somehow the logo_url site setting (which is depreciated and hidden now) is changed to its default value /images/d-logo-sketch.png when it is empty. You should remove the value in the console like below.

rails c
SiteSetting.logo_url = ""

Hi there, I’m a bit of a newbie and I’m having the same isssue, where do I find the console?
Any help would be much appreciated

If you did a standard install, you’d do this:

cd /var/discourse
./launcher enter app
rails c
SiteSetting.logo_url = ""
exit

I’ve had to do this each time a new release is created, can we make this change permanent?

This is assigned to @tgxworld he is having a think about a more permanent solution here, we want to allow people to have text logos work.

Thanks. i am waiting

No point in waiting imo… Just download paint.net for now and draw a text logo for now. It is free: https://www.getpaint.net/

We will get to this, but you have a very trivial workaround.

PR for this is up in

I had to add proper default support to upload site settings in order to recover the feature in a sane manner.

This is fixed for the upcoming release in

I’m still discussing with @sam about the PR above.
