Personalize SpiceCRM Back-end with a logo

Hi Val,

Thank you for the new release of SpiceCRM! Neat installation of the back-end, smooth transfer of a CRM from SugarCRM-CE. Front-end, hmm, seems to have some connectivity issues on my installation.

Anyway, my question is a lay-out question: As we are running multiple difference instances in parallel, we use a logo to easily identify which instance you are working in. In Administration>System settings>user interface> one can upload a logo, which is SugarCRM is displayed in the upper-left corner of the UI. In this SpiceCRM-UI version this is not the case.

Is there an easy way to display a logo in an empty corner of the UI?

Thanks, Erik

Hi Val,

Thanks for your guidance. I noticed the logo in the front end, however, for some of our applications the front-end is overkill and the backend will do as CRM system. This is where I would like to add a logo.

Is that (still) possible?

Regards, Erik

SpiceTheme does not regard uploadable logo in admin > settings. Easiest way for your own logo is to save your image under custom/include/images/sugar_md.png
Please note that image dimension are width=“340” and height=“25”
This is hardcoded in modules/Users/Login.php

Alternative would be to customize modules/Users/login.tpl:

  • 1 core modification in modules/Users/Login.php (this will be added to next SpiceCRM version): add get_custom_file_if_exists in last line:
  • copy modules/Users/login.tpl to custom/modules/Users/login.tpl
  • Set your image tag instead of {$LOGIN_IMAGE}

I can’t promise it will be implemented but I will evaluate workload to make use of company logo in SpiceTheme.

Hi Val,

Thanks for your answer!

Kind regards,



just to let you know that the feature will be part of release 2019.01.001 coming up in January 2019.
