Combine custom themes with custom logos directly?

Hi,
Might be that i simply didnt find the answer for this problem myself and went the long way but i just wanted to ask something about the workflow.

Currently i create a theme with the theme wizard (one of the best inventions ever!) and then go to the logo wizard to create a logo based upon that theme. Now i have to manually edit all logos in the theme and add the appropiate custom created logo (with a random name) to it.

So if i dont do this wrong and there is no automatted way i would suggest one or two ways to improve this:

  1. Please attach the logo wizard's pictures directly into the base-theme, maybe as an option at the end
  2. Dont give them random names. Maybe find a certain spot and name them based on theme they are done for like e.g. "orange-dark-logo.png" or "default-dark-cms.png" and so on.

This would make the workflow a hell lot more intuitive and would save me from doing lots of work that is more or less overfluent ,0)

Hi,

I just tested this, and it seemed to work as intended. I created a new theme, set to be on all zones (just so I could see it), then ran the logo wizard with that theme selected, and it showed that logo on my theme.

umm… for me this seems not to work.. strange.
When i create a theme i do it with the wizard and attach it to all zones. when i then use the logo creator i have a few randomly named files in the theme's folder but have to attach them via the image management for every theme…

But i will try some things. before i keep believing this

Ok, i checked it. the new logos are not attached directly to a new theme, but they are created. i have to adjust every zone to show the right logo..
