Your paypal email is added in the Admin –> General Settings –> Features and Options –> Payment: Paypal section.

Refer to the online documentation for Configuring PayPal

http://www.datemill.com/etano/wiki/doku.php?id=admin:setup#configuring_paypal

You can change the logo by replacing the existing logo.png file located in the skins_site/def/images/ folder.

The existing logo is 485 x 80 pixels. It will easiest if you try to design your new logo the same size as the existing one (at least the height). If you want to make the logo a different size (in height) you'll need to adjust the sizes in the  skins_site/def/styles/header.css file.
Code: [Select]
#logo-box {
position: absolute;
top: 9px;
left: 0;
width: 500px;
height: 80px;
}

#logo-box a {
font-size: 22px;
color: #000;
text-decoration: none;
padding: 30px 0 30px 174px;
display: block;
background: url('../images/logo.png') no-repeat center left;
}

For example, if you designed your new logo to be 450 x 100 pixels, with the height  being 100 instead of the default of 80px, you'd need to make the following adjustments
Code: [Select]
#logo-box {
position: absolute;
top: 9px;
left: 0;
width: 500px;
height: 100px; (20px more in height)
}

#logo-box a {
font-size: 22px;
color: #000;
text-decoration: none;
padding: 40px 0 40px 174px; (since the logo is 20px higher you'll need to add 10px to the top and bottom)
display: block;
background: url('../images/logo.png') no-repeat center left;
}

If you make the height more, such as 100px, you'll also need to adjust the height of the header as well in the skins_site/def/styles/layout.css file:
Code: [Select]
#header-container {
height: 125px; (increase 20px)
background-color: #000000;
background-position: bottom;
}



The default logo is a background image with the default name of your site applied over it. If you want to create the background logo image that has your site name already on it and don't want the system's default text applied, then you need to make the following change to the index.html, frame.html and frame_general.html files:

Replace this:
Code: [Select]
<div id="logo-box">
<a href="{tplvars.relative_url}index.php">{tplvars.sitename}</a>
</div>
With this:
Code: [Select]
<div id="logo-box">
<a href="{tplvars.relative_url}index.php">&nbsp;</a>
</div>

Maverick, as an aside, Paypal are giving me grief lately saying I need to upgrade my paypal installation before 30th june or they are stopping taking payments.

Yes I'm aware of the PayPal security updates required. You usually get emails from PayPal stating which things need to be completed and which things are ok.

The key ones to be concerned with are:

1. TLS 1.2 and HTTP/1.1 Upgrade - (this is done by your host sever, most hosts have already updated this)

2. IPN Verification Postback to HTTPS - the PayPal script in Etano already uses https for IPN, however I'm not really sure if it means you need to also have a SSL certificate for your site so your site is https instead of just http so that it's an https connection both ways. It's often typical with PayPal when it comes to clarifying what needs to actually be done, all I could find is where some people have suggested if you're using IPN postback that you should make your site https just to be safe, and Google also likes secure sites that use https instead of just http, especially sites that are selling something.

If you decide to get your host to turn on SSL (many good hosts already have this turned on ready to utilize), here's the changes you'll need to do with the script:
