    17 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 (the Trac chrome handler uses "`site/`" for files within the project directory `htdocs` and "`common/`" for the common ones). Note that 'site/' is not a placeholder for your project name, it is the actual prefix that should be used (literally). For example, if your project is named 'sandbox', and the image file is 'red_logo.gif' then the 'src' setting would be 'site/red_logo.gif', not 'sandbox/red_logo.gif'.

    2728=== Icon === 
    28 Icons should be a 16x16 image in `.gif` or `.ico` format.  Change the `icon` setting to `site/` followed by the name of your icon file.  Icons will typically be displayed by your web browser next to the site's URL and in the `Bookmarks` menu.

    5051The new [mainnav] and [metanav] can now be used to customize the text and link used for the navigation items, or even to disable them (but not for adding new ones).

    100 Those who are familiar with XSLT may notice that Genshi templates bear some similarities. However, there are some Trac specific features - for example '''${href.chrome('site/style.css')}''' attribute references template placed into environment's ''htdocs/''  In a similar fashion '''${chrome.htdocs_location}''' is used to specify common ''htdocs/'' directory from Trac installation.

In a similar fashion `${chrome.htdocs_location}` is used to specify the common `htdocs/` directory belonging to a Trac installation. That latter location can however be overriden using the [[TracIni#trac-config|[trac] htdocs_location]] configuration setting.

    104105See [http://groups.google.com/group/trac-users/browse_thread/thread/70487fb2c406c937/ this thread] for a detailed explanation of the above example `site.html`. 
    105 A site.html can contain any number of such py:match sections for whatever you need to modify. This is all [http://genshi.edgewall.org/ Genshi], so the docs on the exact syntax can be found there.

    120 This example illustrates a technique of using '''`req.environ['PATH_INFO']`''' to limit scope of changes to one view only. For instance, to make changes in site.html only for timeline and avoid modifying other sections - use  ''`req.environ['PATH_INFO'] == '/timeline'`'' condition in <py:if> test.

    138 Also note that the `site.html` (despite its name) can be put in a common templates directory - see the `[inherit] templates_dir` option. This could provide easier maintainence (and a migration path from 0.10 for larger installations) as one new global `site.html` file can be made to include any existing header, footer and newticket snippets.
