The following tutorial covers changing of GreenJet Theme top background image on a Plone 3 website. Instruction for changing it in Plone 4 - see in How to replace GreenJet Theme top image in Plone 4 tutorial.

1. Front Page Image

GreenJet theme includes an image, that is used as a background on site top area. This image is used on all site sections unless they have different one set.


This image with top.jpg shortname is located in quintagroup_theme_greenjet_custom_images folder (in ZMI). To change this image press on Customize button:

Upload the image you want to be displayed as a background, and give it section.jpg shortname. Make sure your added image id is section.jpg. If not - use Actions -> Rename menu.
