13 == Changing the logo ==

15 Many methods can be used to change your wiki's logo. The method described here is the simplest of all:
16
17 1. Edit the currently used Flamingo Theme (by going to ##Administration > Look & Feel > Themes > Color Theme > Customize##)
18 1. Go the the "Logos" section of the variables
19 1. Click on the "Choose an attachment" button, just beneath the ##@logo## variable.
20 1. Select from one of the existing image attachments on the theme page.
21 1. Otherwise, if you'd like to upload a new logo image, click "Browse", choose a file from your computer and then click "Upload and select".(((

27 If you're using the Flamingo skin, you can also change your wiki's background color pretty easily:
28
29 * Go to the currently used Flamingo Theme as before
30 * Change the colors from the “Base color” section in the editor
31 * Click on the "Save & View" button at the bottom of the page. Your wiki is now running under a new color scheme!(((

35 == Changing your wiki's panels ==
36
37 In XWiki you can add panels to enhance the look and navigation of your wiki.
38
39 Go to the “Page Layout” tab ( ##Administration > Look & Feel > Panels##). The "Page Layout" tab allows you to:
40
41 * Define whether you want a right column, a left column, both or none
42 * Set the width of these columns to small, medium or large
43 * Specify the list of panels you’d like to display on both the left and the right column.(((

47 The "Panel List" tab allows you to select which panels you want to display.
48
49 * Drag & Drop the panels you want to use from the middle of the page to the columns
50 * Drag & Drop the panels you want to remove from the columns to the middle of the page
51 * Drag & Drop the panels you want to move from one place in the column to another
52 * Once you're happy with the result, click on "Save" at the bottom of the page. Your wiki now has new panels ordered to your preference.(((
