Adding extra logo in theme was created by tammo
Please help us help you and fill where relevant:
Your LimeSurvey version: 6.4
Own server or LimeSurvey hosting: Own
Survey theme/template: Extended Vanilla
==================
I am extending Vanilla and want to add a second logo, but run into a wall.

In config.xml I added:
Code:
<!-- logo1 -->
        <brandlogo type="buttons" category="Logos" width="4" title="Logo" options="on|off" optionlabels="Yes|No">on</brandlogo>
        <brandlogofile type="dropdown" category="Logos" width="6" title="Logo file" parent="brandlogo">files/logo.png</brandlogofile>
        <!-- logo2 -->
        <logo2 type="buttons" category="Logos" width="4" title="Second logo" options="on|off" optionlabels="Yes|No">on</logo2>
        <logo2file type="dropdown" category="Logos" width="6" title="Second logo file" parent="logo2">files/logo.png</logo2file>
Of course the first logo was already in config.xml
But adding the second logo seemed impossible: when going to the theme options I cannot see the files list. Opening the flies list show an empty list.

Strange enough I can add a Background dialog in config.xml and this show normally.
Code:
<backgroundimage type="buttons" category="Background" width="4" title="Background image" options="on|off" optionlabels="Yes|No">on</backgroundimage>
        <backgroundimagefile type="dropdown" category="Background" width="6" title="Background image file" parent="backgroundimage">files/pattern.jpg</backgroundimagefile>
I must be doing something wrong, but after some hours I ask for help here? What goes wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Hi, from what I read in the pull request it look like this was something that was developed, but deprecated after some discussion? It that right?

I think that this is needed, a second ( or even third) logo is something my customers want dearly. Why would there be a restriction on the number of images that can be used in a theme? Even if it would be unimaginable for the developer, I would say: every theme developer has the right to make it as difficult as he/she want. Even if it would not work.

@Denis (or others): can you please look into this? Is this something:
1. that was developed and afterwards deprecated?
2. was never solved
3. will never be solved
4. can be solved easily
5. can only be solved with difficulties

Hi tammo,
we have successfully added multiple logos (left/middle/right) at custom Limesurvey themes. For example our "Backy" theme comes with these placeholders:
- Download theme: survey-consulting.com/product/limesurvey-template-backy/
- Demo survey: ls300demo.survey-consulting.com/index.ph...74?newtest=Y&lang=en
- Options: survey-consulting.com/wp-content/uploads...ky_theme_options.png

Thing is that at LS 6.x defining the logo options at config.xml had several issues, see bugs.limesurvey.org/view.php?id=18880 and bugs.limesurvey.org/view.php?id=19086 .
So make sure to use the latest 6.x version when developing this. It includes the necessary fixes.

This is how we have defined the different image details at config.xml:
<backgroundimage type="buttons" category="Images" width="4" title="Background image" options="on|off" optionlabels="Yes|No">off</backgroundimage>
<backgroundimagefile type="imagefile" category="Images" width="6" title="Background image file" parent="backgroundimage"/>
<banner type="buttons" category="Images" width="4" title="Banner" options="on|off" optionlabels="Yes|No">off</banner>
<bannerfile type="imagefile" category="Images" width="6" title="Banner file" parent="banner"/>
<logoleft type="buttons" category="Images" width="4" title="Logo left" options="on|off" optionlabels="Yes|No">on</logoleft>
<logoleftfile type="imagefile" category="Images" width="6" title="Logo left file" parent="logoleft">./files/logo.png</logoleftfile>
<logomiddle type="buttons" category="Images" width="4" title="Logo middle" options="on|off" optionlabels="Yes|No">off</logomiddle>
<logomiddlefile type="imagefile" category="Images" width="6" title="Logo middle file" parent="logomiddle">./files/logo.png</logomiddlefile>
<logoright type="buttons" category="Images" width="4" title="Logo right" options="on|off" optionlabels="Yes|No">off</logoright>
<logorightfile type="imagefile" category="Images" width="6" title="Logo right file" parent="logoright">./files/logo.png</logorightfile>
<favicon type="buttons" category="Images" width="4" title="Favicon" options="on|off" optionlabels="Yes|No">on</favicon>
<faviconfile type="imagefile" category="Images" width="6" title="Favicon file" parent="favicon">./files/favicon.png</faviconfile>

Hope this helps!

No,

The deprecated part are for brandlogofile and backgroundfile :

1. both must move to the new imageFile typoe in core theme for 6.X
2. both must be clearly set as deprecated usage for 6.X (show it's a deprecated usage in code, but still allow it)
3. both must be removed in 7X


Finally we must use only imafeFile for imageFile dropdown

Still not completely clear: how to upload a new file? I do not see an option for that?
