I want to change the background image and color of the header section in one of my projects.
Whatever I enter in one of these fields is not saved:

  • Header Image
  • Topbar Background Color (CSS Colors)
  • Topbar Text Color (CSS Colors)
  • Quicklinks

The other fields like Name, Description and Homepage can be changed.

I can confirm this problem. Please fix it, my current background picture is so ugly!

Very annoying indeed. It used to work in the past, as I have some projects where I could make the changes.


Updated by Andreas Becker over 9 years ago

Problem still exists. Is there any way i can help to fix that problem?

Note to myself: To manually upload a file, place it under ~/redmine/public/images/headerimages/<project_id>.jpg

At first it's a problem with permissions on field access. This is fixed now via this patch:


I'll now further dig into the file issue...

Fix is done in dev instance and will be part of the update which is going to become true really soon.

Thanks for fixing this.
Is it fixed in the live instance too now?
I just tried to change the background, but it didn't work.

We have problems with the SVN integration ( user rights and so on ) so the update did not yet happen.

Hey Michiel, Bumping is nice, but it is not speeding anything up. We have right now a lot of work combined with the update. If you follow @TYPO3Server on twitter you will have mentioned, that we've had a meeting the last few days in hamburg and got a lot of things done. Right now there are still things, that work not pretty well and we need more time before updateing this huge project..

Text and background color are fixed, but you can also set a background image, which does not work yet.


Updated by Peter Niederlag about 6 years ago

It seems that the background image can even be changed but won't be reflected in the output until caches are invalidated. As of today an updated image showed up on a project where e did some testing last friday night.

- Backgrund image can be changed
- It needs a reload to see the changed background image

This is true with admin permissions at least, someone with an unprivileged account around for testing on another project?
