    I just implemented the community edition of Sitefinity 3.2 SP1.  On everyone of my pages I have this code added before the end <body> tag. 
        <class="poweredBySitefinityLogo" style="text-align: center !important; display: block !important; visibility: visible !important; overflow: visible !important; position: static !important;"><href="http://www.sitefinity.com" target="_blank"><img src="/sitefinity/WebResource.axd?d=JAqXmQ3ffQyzcLh_F1dvEoTn7sv3hGiDnAJm6ziwejuEuawDAXI8e5-fARDiseegkDrS3vqajqPfZUb3A4713Q2&t=633460264588447058" alt="Sitefinity logo" height="51" width="139" style="display: inline !important; visibility: visible !important; position: static !important; width: 139px !important; height: 51px !important;" /></a></p>




    I know that I have to have the Sitefnity logo on my site, but I would like to place it where I like not where they are adding it. Is there a way to change the location of this logo?

    Hi Michael,

    To help you with the implementation we will need more information on how you want the logo to fit in within your design.

    Can you please send us:
       - a link to the live site
    or, if not available,
       - the master page and theme files.

    Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

    How do we change the sitefinity logo that is added by default to the end of the page on community edition to one of the logos in the SItefinitylogos.zip file? Your logo would look much better in our site footer, it just looks out of place and ruins the look of the site when it's added outside of our master page layout.

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Hello Daniel L,

    Unfortunately, you cannot change the logo with any of the logos from SItefinitylogos.zip. Until the end of this month we will release SP2 and we will change the logo with one that is more neutral. We also have planned to provide the ability to choose among several logos in web.config but I am not sure whether this feature will be available in the SP.

    We are very sorry for the inconvenience. If you need any CSS assistance, please get back to me (I will need design, masterpage and theme) and I will do my best to help you.

    Greetings,

    Thanks Katia, it's good to know you are working on this. The website isn't finalized yet but if we need to get it online before the end of the month I will send you the files. If would be nice if we could call the ashx to insert the logo anywhere in the master page, and if the ashx wasn't called then sitefinity would insert the default logo at the bottom. Being able to choose between various logos would be a big plus. I really like all the ones in the downloads section.

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    I like Daniel's suggestion. Keeps the logo on the page if it's not prepositioned. Which allows designers to work around the logos available.

    Also if I could suggest a text only tag version that you could add another tag to.

    For instance: Powered By Sitefinity.com and MyDesign.com

    Hi Briankb,

    Thank you for your suggestions, we will take them into consideration for feature releases. Anyway, for the upcoming release, we will change the logo with one that is more neutral and is supposed to suit most site designs.

    All the best,

    How can you position the telerik logo on the page? I noticed most of the styles are inline. For instance adding our tag to the left or right of the telerik tag?

    Hello Briankb,

    Can you please be more specific about the effect you want to achieve? We have set some limitations for applying css styles to the logo with the inline styles. However, if you send me an image with the design of your site and the place your tag is supposed to appear, I will be able to give you deatiled instructions how to fulfil it.

    Kind regards,

    Hello James,

    To remove the border around the link I suggest that you add the following CSS rule to the site theme that your site uses: 

    .poweredBySitefinityLogo

    a img {
        
    border: 0;
    }


    CSS file for your site theme is supposed to be in ~/App_Theme/YourSiteThemeName folder.

    The border will be removed by default in SP2 that will be release till the end of this month.

    Kind regards,

    Katia

    Hello yan,

    We have changed Sitefinity logo to another one that is more universal and is supposed to suit most designs. The ugly border around the logo is also removed. We have not provided the possibility to choose among several logos from web.config yet, though.

    Best wishes,

    I need to get the community logo moved to the footer.  Here is the current version of the website:  www.rmrg.org

    With the latest update the powered by sitefinity logo sits under the main content and changes location with every page.

    I would like it to sit where the current Powered by Sitefinity logo is located on the live site if possible.

    Hello Adam,

    First I suggest that you delete the logo that you have put at the moment and the two <br /> tags above it and then set padding bottom to the footer div to 80px by changing the CSS in style.css to the one from below:

    #footer

    {
        
    background-color:#F9F7EA;
        
    border-top:1px dotted #CCCCCC;
        
    clear:both;
        
    margin-left:340px;
        
    margin-right:50px;
        
    margin-top:40px;
        
    padding: 20px 20px 80px;
        
    text-align:center;
    }

    After that, move Powered by Sitefinity logo upwards by adding the following CSS to style.css:

    .poweredBySitefinityLogo

    {
        
    margin: -70px 0 0;
    }

    I am having similiar style issues regarding your 'powered by sitefinity' logo.

    The version I got of you website (PB_sitefinity81x30pix_DB.gif) intergrated nicely in my footer, which I did manually not realising that I was going to get a massive pill button version below my footer also.

    Please can you help me intergrate you logo better with my site as it looks bad for both of us, as is. 

    I have noticed the site mentioned in this thread (www.rmrg.org) has managed to remove the background, How do I do that?

    And can I get it to position bottom right of my site in the footer?

    The site in development can be viewed at http://www.emmafozard.lucidform.co.uk

    and currently has both versions of you logo on so you can see what im going for.

    regards 

    Ste.

    Hello steeeeeeeeeee,

    The centered logo is automatically added to Community Edition sites and cannot be removed neither can be removed the grey background.

    So I suggest that you remove the other logo from your website (PB_sitefinity81x30pix_DB.gif) and move the automatically added one to the bottom right. Here is some CSS that you can use to move it.

    .poweredBySitefinityLogo


    {
        
    margin: -15px -650px 0 0;
    }
    .footer img
    {
        
    margin-right: 150px;
    }

    Hi,

    I've downloaded the sitefinityLogos.zip.

    Can we change the logo via web.config now? (Community 3.2 1616)

    There's still no way to remove or change the built-in logo. We apologize for the confusion, and will try to provide such an option as soon as possible.

    Hello Briankb,

    You can put the logo in your masterpage and then position it next to Sitefinity logo with CSS. There is no way to place the logo where you want it automatically.

    Hi Jonathan Marbutt,

    Sitefinity logo appears behind part of the design because Content and SideBar divs are placed absolutely and therefore they have higher z-index then the logo. I suggest that you float the two div and clear the float for the paragraph that holds the logo. Below I have written the changes that you have to do in HomeTheme.css and HomeTheme.css

    HomeTheme.css
    .Content 
        background-imageurl('../../Images/Contentbackground.jpg');  
        background-repeat:no-repeat
        width:574px
        background-color:White; 
        margin-left:25px
        margin-top13px
        floatleft
        padding:10px
    .SideBar 
        floatleft
        width:320px
        margin-left11px
        margin-top13px


    HomeTheme.css
    .poweredBySitefinityLogo { 
        margin:30px 0 0; 
        width: 100%; 
        float:left
        clear:both
     

    I hope this helps.

    Is there any update on the ability to control logo placement and style?  I don't think you'll find anyone objecting to it being there.  We want to make sure it doesn't mess with the design by integrating it so it looks good.

    Hi Colinbo,

    Regarding the logo replacement,  we will add the ability for administrators to choose among a set of predefined images to show for the Sitefinity Logo. This option will be available in the next release of Sitefinity due by the end of October.

    The logo will always be displayed on the bottom of the page. Restyling and different placement can be done using CSS styles. We are planning to provide more documentation and tips on how to do that.

    I hope that the above will make the integration of the logo in the design of the projects easier.

    I've seen and had the same troubles regarding developing with the Community Edition. I've been working on developing a site that has a black background and the default powered by logo looks awful in the design of the site. However, the dark background logo offered in the zip file looks really cool on the footer. Telerik will have to authorize this, but there is a way to remove the default logo placement with a little javascript.

    I haven't released any websites into production using the community edition, so you will have to get approval from Telerik just as I would before implementing something like this in a production/live website. The javascript I propose is nothing ingenious or new, so the main question is of legality and honesty.

    Place this javascript in the <head>:

    // this removes the default powered by logo.
    function hideDefaultPoweredByLogo()
        {
            var nodeList = document.getElementsByTagName("p")
           
            var defaultPoweredByLogo = null;
            for (i = 0; i < nodeList.length; i++) {
                if (nodeList[i].getAttribute("class") == "poweredBySitefinityLogo") {
                    defaultPoweredByLogo = nodeList[i];
                    break;
                }
            }

            if (defaultPoweredByLogo != null)
            {
                var filler = document.createElement("span");
                filler.style.display = "none";
               
                var parent = defaultPoweredByLogo.parentNode;
                parent.replaceChild(filler, defaultPoweredByLogo);
            }
        }


    and then place this at the bottom of your webpage:

    <script language="javascript">  hideDefaultPoweredByLogo(); </script>

    The javascript I propose is nothing ingenious or new, so the main question is of legality and honesty.

    This is a workaround until Sitefinity Community enables logo selection.  Once the logo is disabled, you can add the Sitefinity logo of your choosing to your template.  Several Sitefinity logos can be downloaded from:  http://www.sitefinity.com/my-client.net/my-downloads.aspx

    ----

    As an aside, Telerik recently loosened the license being applied to Sitefinity Community edition.  The Community edition can now be used for commercial web sites.  In addition, Sitefinity does not have hard limits buried in the code.  Other Community-edition CMS products, for example, tend to limit the # of pages you can create.  This has never been a restriction Telerik has imposed on Sitefinity.

    I'm saying all of this to offer some perspective.  We want you to be able to accomplish a lot with Sitefinity Community and we've tried to make the license flexible enough to encompass a myriad of projects.  

    I don't think anyone in this thread is objecting to the logo display requirement.  Rather everyone here is simply trying to make the Sitefinity logo fit with their design.  Future versions of Sitefinity will make this easier.  Hopefully this issue will eventually become moot.

    Kevin, thanks for posting your workaround!!  This will hopefully help in the short-term.

    I am using that javascript posted above, I just replaced it with one of the logos from the download section. I gave it the same alt text and linked it back to the sitefinity site. I think its good. Only problem is, the script doesn't work in IE.

    Anybody get this to work in IE?

    Ali,
    IE is a little quirky with the 'class' attribute name. So the cross-browser version of the script would be the below. Notice the getAttribute("className") check which is valid in IE.

    function hideDefaultPoweredByLogo() { 
     
        var DEFAULT_LOGO_CSSCLASS = "poweredBySitefinityLogo"
        var nodeList = document.getElementsByTagName("p"
     
        var defaultPoweredByLogo = null
     
        for (i = 0; i < nodeList.length; i++)  
        { 
            if (nodeList[i].getAttribute("class") == DEFAULT_LOGO_CSSCLASS || 
                nodeList[i].getAttribute("className") == DEFAULT_LOGO_CSSCLASS) { 
                defaultPoweredByLogo = nodeList[i]; 
                break
            } 
        } 
     
        if (defaultPoweredByLogo != null)  
        { 
            var filler = document.createElement("span"); 
            filler.style.display = "none"
     
            var parent = defaultPoweredByLogo.parentNode; 
            parent.replaceChild(filler, defaultPoweredByLogo); 
        } 

    Thanks,
    Kevin
