Editing Web Host Logo, Footer And Company Details
This topic will help you change the Logo, Footer and
Company Details displayed in Web Host pages.
All Web Host content is stored in the
database's HTML folder. For instance, C:\CV11\demodb\html.
Changing Web Host Logo
Your image must first be saved in the \html\global
folder. If you do not have this folder, it must be saved
in the \html\ user folder.
Knowledge of image editing may be needed to
resize and save your logo correctly.
Collect! Web Host uses a CSS (Cascading Style
Sheet) file to setup the banner displayed at the
top of each page, as well as providing the style
for the content of each page.
You need to be a familiar with CSS files to make
advanced changes to the CSS file. This topic
will just show how to modify one style affecting the
1. Open the collect.css file
in a text editor program, for example, Notepad, WordPad, or
Ultra Edit. This file is stored in the html\global
folder. Older versions of the Web Host will have the file in
the html\user folder.
2. Scroll to the lines:
background: #5EB8C8 URL(clogo.gif) no-repeat 5px 0px;
Our logo filename is clogo.gif. You can
save your file as the same name. Or, if you save your logo
as a different filename, you will need to replace clogo.gif
with your logo's filename. Ignore the 'no-repeat'.
The two positioning values places the image 5 pixels down and 0 to
Here's another example of positioning the logo based on alignments.
background: #5EB8C8 URL(clogo.gif) no-repeat center left;
The 'center' and 'left' tell the HTML page how to
position the logo file in the 'banner' section on the
page. The 'center' is vertical alignment and the 'left' is
Each time you make the change in the CSS
file and save it, you will want to refresh your viewed page.
Sometimes this requires that you clear your cookies
and/or temporary Internet files as the browser can
cache the page information.
The other information for the DIV.banner and DIV.banner2 styles
requires CSS knowledge.
Editing Company Details For The Web Host
The Company Information is now only stored in one
location, collect.js. This file is found
in the HTML\global folder. The directives for placing the
company info are written in the ' encompassing'
function in this script file.
The function places the company information on each
page loaded through the Web Host. Address info, Company Name
or a Company Name image may be loaded. Previously, it was
necessary to edit several Web Host *.html pages to update
the company information. Now, you only have to edit one
file. This may be done a lot more quickly.
In the 'encompassing' function, the top two variables,
currently commented out by a double slash //,
are used for a Company Name image. The next two
variables control the text for the Company Name.
Only one of these sets can be used. Which ever set
is not used, must have the // before the two
variables to comment it out.
The next set of variables controls the Address information.
If the label variable and data variable for the same field are
left blank, the row will not exist.
The Web Host does not need to be restarted if making
changes to the address. However, the browser will need to be
refreshed and sometimes even have the cookies and/or
temporary Internet files cleared.
Editing Web Host Page Footers
This is identical to the Company Details editing, except for
the include file. The pages generated from the Web Host
use an @include command with the file 'footer.txt' This file
is located in the html\global folder. The pages that are not
generated from the Web Host will need to be edited manually.
These pages are located throughout the HTML folder. However,
no editing is needed for pages or documents in the operator ID
folders as these are generated by Web Host and replaced as
you use Web Host.
