XF 1.4 Logo scaling solution

    I run a forum that is frequented by older folks, who often scale up the display using the Windows or Mac scaling feature. When this happens, text elements scale up fine, but the logo, of course, does not--as it's an image, it scales horribly, or not at all.

    Is there any solution to this issue?

    Thanks.

    Use SVG format for your logo

    Oh, and does Xenforo support a logo in svg?

    I see.

    What's the best way to create an svg if you're not a coder? Does a png to svg conversion work well with, say, photoshop?

    Use Illustrator, then "save as" a .svg file. See this page for more info: http://css-tricks.com/using-svg/

    If you have not rasterized the elements then you can save as EPS (another vector format) in Photoshop the convert to SVG

    I have xenforo 1.5

    For logo, I "save as" an .ai file as both .svg and a .jpg and the svg one shows up crazy and even in different font...how is that possible? I tried inputting that code for onerror too.

    svg is working no problem and sharp with node icons though.

    Have to stick with jpg or png for logo I guess. Would like to use svg as my logo is kinda fuzzy :(

    If using AI, before saving, select text and "object" , "expand" to make text part of logo. Then save as svg.
