Is there a way to remove that ugly splash screen in sliverstripe?
I have downloaded the beta 2.4 and was hoping silverstripe finally removed that splash screen and improved the loading between "tabs" but that splash screen definitly has to go out in my opinion!

Of course, this is SilverStripe!

There are three main things that you can customise with great ease with the CMS 'look and feel'.

LeftAndMain::setLogo('mysite/images/cms-logo.gif',[inline custom css]);
LeftAndMain::setApplicationName('My CMS', null, '');

see: [url=]LeftAndMain class[/url]

Please note, order is important with these functions as one will ovewrite the other, a bit annoying.

PS: I have only used this in 2.3, but the code is still in the trunk, so it should work in 2.4 as well.

Hi Thanks

But where exactly do you set these settings, in the main config file inside / cms ?

Any _config.php will do, but preferably the one in your mysite folder.

I've got some strange problems when trying to change the logo in admin.

In my _config.php:

LeftAndMain::setLogo('assets/Uploads/VisionWeb-logo.gif', 'position: relative; left: 0px; margin-top: -3px; padding-left: 0px');

And when i view the source code the ' character has been html encoded:

<div id="Logo" style="background: url(&quot;assets/Uploads/VisionWeb-logo.gif&quot;) no-repeat scroll 0% 0% transparent; position: relative; left: 0px; margin-top: -3px; padding-left: 0px;">

Anyone having any idea about what's happening here?
