I've searched everywhere, but I cannot find how to set the logo for my wiki.

Any and all help gratefully received.

Hi Kontax, the Help:Logo page has some more info on uploading logos, although it's a tad bit outdated.
To upload a new logo for the Aurora skin (the dark skin used on this wiki, among many other ShoutWiki wikis), upload the file as Aurora-skin-logo.png via the Special:Upload page on your wiki. The logo image can be up to 75px tall, and no more than 400px wide. --Jack PhoenixShoutWiki Staff (Contact) 01:22, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply!

OK, so it all depends on the file name? Or am I wrong? If not, what about the MonoBook skin?

And I disagree with your comment "tad bit outdated". ;)

You're right, it depends on the file name. MonoBook, Monaco, Nimbus and Vector use the same logo — a file called Wiki.png. Like the help page notes, this logo file should be around 150 x 150 pixels in size. Monaco's logo can be a bit wider, but it should be noted that then it won't look as good on the other three skins. --Jack PhoenixShoutWiki Staff (Contact) 14:28, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

OK, Thanks for your time. Much appreciated! 22:23, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

I keep re-uploading my private wiki's File:Wiki.png over and over again, but the file remains the same, and its history claims that the most recent version uploaded was actually the default ShoutWiki logo, until I upload another version: that version is said to be the ShoutWiki logo, while the earlier one is the actual logo that I had uploaded. This problem has occurred repeatedly, and I don't know how I'm supposed to fix it. --The3vilbanana (talk) 22:17, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
