    Hello Thanks for the tip but please let me know where I have to place the logo in Pligg backend. I have to place in template folder or in pligg main folder. It will be appreciated if you can let me know!

      You need to do the changes through Admin panel. If you can access the template folder, you can do the changes in respective files which are in template folder; not in main folder.
