    Open up your filezilla, and make adjustments to different files, until you figure out which ones correspond to what. You will probably be able to search around google for other people doing similar things like "zynger add image"

    Really its down to you hacking around in the template. Just remember to backup all your files and changes.

    Kaizuk,

    I'm not sure which CMS you are using but in general you want to look in the templates folder for an index.php file. If you have already located the file that you need to manipulate, an easy and quick way to figure out which code is rendering the logo is to visit your website in Chrome, right click and choose inspect element. As you mouse over the code you will see elements on the page get highlighted. Look for the code for the logo and then change it in your code editor.

    Here is more on using the elements panel in chrome,

    Best,

    Shawn
