    1010The logo or icon image should be put in a folder named "htdocs" in your project's environment folder.  (''Note: in projects created with a Trac version prior to 0.9 you will need to create this folder'') 
    1111 
     12 ''Note: you can actually put the logo and icon anywhere on your server (as long as it's accessible through the web server), and use their absolute or server-relative URLs in the configuration.''

    15 Change the `src` setting to `site/` followed by the name of your image file.  The `width` and `height` settings should be modified to match your image's dimensions. 
     17Change the `src` setting to `site/` followed by the name of your image file.  The `width` and `height` settings should be modified to match your image's dimensions (the Trac chrome handler uses "`site/`" for files within the project directory `htdocs` and "`common/`" for the common ones).

    4042== Site Header & Footer ==

    4144In the environment folder for each Trac project there should be a directory called {{{templates}}}.  This folder contains files {{{site_header.cs}}} and {{{site_footer.cs}}}.  Users can customize their Trac site by adding the required HTML markup to these files.  The content of these two files will be placed immediately following the opening {{{<body>}}} tag and immediately preceding the closing {{{</body>}}} tag of each page in the site, respectively.

    4548== Site CSS == 
    46 The primary means to adjust the layout of a Trac site is by add [http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/ CSS] style rules that overlay the default rules. This is best done by editing the `site_css.cs` file in the enviroment's `templates` directory. The content of that template gets inserted into a `<style type="text/css></style>` element on every HTML page generated by Trac.

    48 While you can add your custom style rules directory to the `site_css.cs` file, it is recommended that you simply reference an external style sheet, thereby enabling browsers to cache the CSS file instead of transmitting the rules with every response.

     63== Project List == 
     64You can use a custom ClearSilver template to display the list of projects if you are using Trac with multiple projects.   
     65 
     66The following is the basic template used by Trac to display a list of links to the projects.  For projects that could not be loaded it displays an error message. You can use this as a starting point for your own index template. 
     67 
     68{{{ 
     69#!text/html 
     70<html> 
     71<head><title>Available Projects</title></head> 
     72<body> 
     73 <h1>Available Projects</h1> 
     74 <ul><?cs 
     75 each:project = projects ?><li><?cs 
     76  if:project.href ?> 
     77   <a href="<?cs var:project.href ?>" title="<?cs var:project.description ?>"> 
     78    <?cs var:project.name ?></a><?cs 
     79  else ?> 
     80   <small><?cs var:project.name ?>: <em>Error</em> <br /> 
     81   (<?cs var:project.description ?>)</small><?cs 
     82  /if ?> 
     83  </li><?cs 
     84 /each ?> 
     85 </ul> 
     86</body> 
     87</html> 
     88}}}

     90Once you've created your custom template you will need to configure the webserver to tell Trac where the template is located:

    64113If you absolutely need to use modified templates, copy the template files from the default templates directory (usually in found in `$prefix/share/trac/templates`) into the `templates` directory of the project environment. Then modify those copies to get the desired results.
