HowTo add a logo to your Redmine banner

You can very easily add a logo to your Redmine banner by modifying your base.html.erb file.
Big thanks to Chris Miller for showing me how to accomplish this :)

Note: This has been tested using the Squeejee Theme and the Classic Theme.
Note2: if you used apache2 passenger module to install redmine,the location of redmine should be /usr/share/redmine instead of /opt/redmine

Edit your base.html.erb file

Example:

nano /opt/redmine/app/views/layouts/base.html.erb

Find this line:

    <h1><%= page_header_title %></h1>

And change it to:

     <!--<h1><%= page_header_title %></h1>-->

Add this line directly below:

     <img src="<%= Redmine::Utils.relative_url_root %>/images/logo.png" style="top-margin: 15px; left-margin: 15px;"/>

The ruby statement <%= Redmine::Utils.relative_url_root %> will produce the relative URI for your redmine installation.

Now it should look like this:

    </div>

     <!--<h1><%= page_header_title %></h1>-->
     <img src="<%= Redmine::Utils.relative_url_root %>/images/logo.png" style="top-margin: 15px; left-margin: 15px;"/>

    <% if display_main_menu?(@project) %>

Upload your logo

Example using the scp command:

scp logo.png root@example.com:/opt/redmine/public/images

You probably should chown the uploaded logo:

chown redmine:redmine /opt/redmine/public/images/logo.png

Restart your web server

Examples:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
/etc/init.d/httpd restart
/etc/init.d/nginx restart
