change-tiki-wiki-logo-1-originalNew TikiWiki web sites will have the default Tiki image for the logo. This can be changed by uploading your own custom logo to the server. In order to know where to upload the logo, the path to the file location will need to be discovered. Also, to retain the correct image dimensions and type, it is recommended to edit the original graphic. This article will explain how to find the path for the TikiWiki logo, and how to upload a custom logo to the server.

Finding the Path for the logo

  1. Log into TikiWiki.
  2. Click the TikiWiki Wrench iconClick the "Modify the Look & Feel (logo, theme, etc.)" wrench at the top right of your Wiki site.
  3. Select the site logoIf the Site Logo and Title are not showing.

    Click the Site Logo and Title checkbox.

  4. TikiWiki logo source pathLocate the logo path in the Logo source (image path): text field. The  default the path will be the following:


    This is the location of the logo on your server.

Uploading a custom logo to your server

  1. Login into your cPanel.
  2. Go to the File Manager.

    Select the location of your TikiWiki site and click Go.

  3. Download the TikiWiki default logoNavigate to the following directory in your File Manager.


    Right click the file and select download to download the default logo to your local computer.

    The Default logo dimension and type are the following.

    - Dimensions 235px X 130px

    - The file type is .png (Portable Network Graphic)

  5. Edit the original image with PhotoShop, Gimp, or another image editing program. This will ensure that the file type, resolution, and size are retained.

    Important! If you upload your custom image without retaining the original logo size and file type, you may not get the results you want. The logo can look distorted and overall poor quality.

    Save the image.
