Logo Customization

Including social media there are nine sites we control with our logo on them.

The wiki site that we use for a manual has a 'tome' underneath it. This isn't good for our image!

The suggestion is to create a series of nine modern looking stylised logo customisers, so that we can differentiate the logos on the eight sites.

  • Manual - Book (for the wiki manaual)
  • Wiki - ?? for general wiki.
  • Bugzillla - A bug (for the bugzilla site)
  • FaceBook - Black-and-white FB logo for facebook.
  • Google+ - Black-and-white Google+ logo for Google+
  • Twitter - Black-and-white Twitter-bird-symbol for Twitter
  • Wordpress Site - Black-and-white Wordpress logo for main site.
  • Forum - ?? for general forum.
  • Doxygen - Flowchart-symbol for doxygen

Logos on the Sites

This is how a corner of each of the websites currently (Mar-2017) looks.

  • We'd like to have all the two-tone colors matching.
  • We'd like to have customising icons to overlay the Audacity logo, to show which site we are on.

Color Correction

James (talk) 15:08, 29 August 2015 (EDT): "As I see it, we would do well to choose colors from Audacity and from the (current) logo. Blues and grays, if we are projecting a sober look and 'reliability' and more of the color accents, e.g. the yellow from the logo, the button colors from the toolbar, if we want to project a more fun and funky look. "

In order to correct the colors (sober choices of blues and grays) we require the following css:

Bugzilla, global.css

/* titles (begin) */
    #titles {
        width: 100%;
        background-color: #3b5998;
        color: #fff;
        border-top-left-radius: 5px;
        border-top-right-radius: 5px;
        font-size: 110%;
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0.5em;
        vertical-align: bottom;

phpBB style.php
/* Round cornered boxes and backgrounds
---------------------------------------- */
.headerbar {
	background-color: #3b5998;
	/* background-image: url("./styles/prosilver-audacity/theme/images/bg_header.gif"); */
	color: #FFFFFF;

.navbar {
	background-color: #d4d6d8;

html, body {
	color: #536482;
	background-color: #f6f6f6;

How Customisation Could Work


Older Sites/Logos


Favicons for the Sites

At the moment we use the same favicon (audacity logo) for all our sites. Particularly when there are several Audacity site pages open in a browser, it would be very helpful to modify the favicon too, to indicate which site.
