Wordpress Logo Button

Proposed Logo for our Wordpress site


  • Icon is small.
  • Text is in 'wrong' color.

Revised Proposal


Logo Customization

Including social media there are ten 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 ten modern looking stylised logo customisers, so that we can differentiate the logos on the eight sites.

  • Manual - Open book (for the wiki manaual)
  • Wiki - Bookshelf or pile of books (for general wiki).
  • Bugzillla - A bug or a bug seen through magnifying glass (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 or a house or home (for main site).
  • Forum - Parthenon icon (for general forum).
  • Doxygen - Flowchart-symbol or compressed air cylinders (for doxygen).
  • Question 2 Answer - Q&A lettering (for q2a site).

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 customizing icons to overlay the Audacity logo, to show which site we are on.

Color Correction

Some color corrected versions of what we currently have are shown here.

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;

Possible Customisers

Used as overlay in bottom right hand corner?

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.
