Our navbar is still just the default Anahita one, where it has the logo and says Anahita, so I'd like to change that. Also, how does it know the difference between when you're logged in or not? I don't really see anything to change between the log in button and the drop down menu.
Click the viewer on the top right, click Site Settings, then Templates on the left, select your template or the current default and the settings should be listed there. You want to change the Brand Name and you can toggle the Show Logo. If you want to change the logo, you can do so by overriding it in your own template.
@hunterwilkes make sure you haven't edited any of the files in the base template and core components and instead you have only used template overrides in your custom template for everything. Otherwise you won't be able to upgrade Anahita.
I have been making new copies of the files in the new template. If I wanted to turn off the navbar, how would I do that? I don't really see anything in the html/com_pages/page/default.php that calls on the navbar.
I tried changing mod_rewrite to yes, but now the website can't find any of its pages. If you click login, you get this message: "The requested URL /people/session was not found on this server." If you change the url to have index.php again, you can get to the login page, but then the login will fail because it won't be able to find the next page. Do you know why this is happening?
I'm running fine with Apache and the mod_rewrites, and I just looked at my live .htaccess file... it's basically the default Anahita .htaccess except I've added some content-specific 301 redirects and a redirect to force https.
My first suggestion would be to confirm that "RewriteEngine On" is not commented out. I also have "Options +FollowSymLinks" and "Options -Indexes" in mine, the latter of which I may have added or it goes back several years to a legacy release.
