Customizing a Neologism Installation

This section is about customizing the information and the appearance regarding colours and logo of a Neologism site without requiring expert knowledge.

This assumes you have administrator's privileges to the Neologism site. As Neologism is based on Drupal, you might also want to familiarize yourself with some of the terminology used in Drupal.

Adding a mission statement

You can change your sites mission by changing the text in the Administer » site configuration » site information » (mission textarea).

Adding a logo and icon

You can add a logo to your site by uploading the logo image or type the path to the file you would like to use as logo at the ‘Logo image settings’ located at Administer » Themes (at Site building section) » configure to the theme configuration section that you are using (URL using the Garland theme: admin/build/themes/settings/garland).
To add an icon to your site is the same process as above but in the ‘Shortcut icon settings’ fieldset located in the same page.

Changing the color scheme

You can change the color schema by changing the values located at Administer » Themes (at Site building section) » configure » (Color scheme fieldset)
Note: To change the color schema of a Drupal site the theme must support it otherwise you wont be able to do it.

Adding an about page

To add an about page go to Create content » Page. Once in the Create Page form, type the title of your page (e.g: "About vocab.deri.ie") and then the body of your page. If you want to add a "Menu link" use the Menu setting fieldset and to add an URL path to your page use the URL path settings fieldset.

Changing the theme

To change the theme of your site you should go to the Themes list at Administer » Themes (at Site building section). Enabled the theme and select it as Default.

Enabling OpenID for Neologism

Thus, in order to use OpenID you need to go to Administer » Site building » modules and check the checkbox to enable the OpenID module from the Core package and then click the save configuration button at the end. Once the module is enabled the link to log using OpenID will appears at the bottom left of the login form.
