Customize Kobotoolbox Logo on the web portal own servers and edit email templates

Is it possible to modify the Kobotoolbox Logo, e.g I have installed it on my own server I would like to modify the logo, and also email templates that are sent to the users during account creation.

Hi @alexgmuriithi,

Would you mind having a look at the post discussed previously. It should have the answer to your query:

Have a great day!

The answer you’ve provided is for the form but I’m asking about the web app that we install using Kobo install on our own server. Check out the image I attached it’s the login page of the web app.

Hi Alex,
This also applies for the web app too.

I was looking for something similar, and just found a solution. Like the previous comments say, the project is opensource!

A quick and easy way would be to replace/download the image files in your server directory, and replace it with the photo name currently being used in kobo.

You have 2 directories to modify.




you can change these 3 files photo files,

kobologoS.svg — notice it is an .svg file and this is for the mobile version after you login the page
kobologo.svg – main logo in the loginpage and registration page

wallpaper takes effect in the first directory. Remember to use root privileges.

you can directly download and replace the name using the following command in your server terminal, download photo from a direct weblink

curl -o kobologo.svg weblink/picture.svg

a quick way to check if your photo is downloaded you can check it in your browser, for example:




Hope it helps, let me know!
