Uploading the changed files

Once you have successfully edited then exported your new logo, you will need to upload it to your server. This process is best done via a FTP client such as Filezilla

  1. Open your FTP client on your local computer.
  2. Login to your web server where Modulus is installed.
  3. Navigate to the /wp-content/themes/rt_modulus_wp/images/logo/{top-overlay}/ directory.
  4. Upload logo.png (and any other logo related images) to this directory (You may need to browse on the local panel in the FTP client to find where you have exported your logo).
  5. Clear your browser cache before viewing such as using the keyboard commands on Windows, Ctrl+F5.

Ensure that you are uploading the correct logo to avoid confusion if it does not change. Also take into account hosting permissions. Sometimes, hosts which are not designed for WordPress may have permissions not suited for the setup, thus, the upload will not be complete. In this case, contact your hosting provider.
