I am preparing a poster for my first conference. I am using a template from internet. I need to modify it and adapt the \headerbox for my work but i got a bad result. I use th example in graphtrack and I changed just the logos and the list of mails.

When I run the poster.tex, I get the second logo in the bad place and also the mail of author did not appear. How Can I resize the \headerbox to get right result enter image description here

    It's difficult to understand where you're running into problems. Could you include the exact content of your .tex file that you compile to get the above result? Also, your reference to "bad result", "second logo", and "bad place" aren't very descriptive in terms of what you would like the result to look like. Could you elaborate on specifically what has gone wrong and what you would like to happen? – Jānis Lazovskis Apr 15 '14 at 2:18
  • Could you please add your source code in the post? It would help solvers a lot to start experimenting with your code. – Malipivo Apr 15 '14 at 3:56
  • @Malipivo, the code source is very large. So I could not include it. In fact, I tried to include it but, it was very large and I could not post ,my question. Is there any way to include my .tex – BetterEnglish Apr 15 '14 at 14:37

    The usual approach is to make a backup copy of your TeX (and other) files and cut the code down significantly to bare minimum, if possible. The code itself can be included in the post with four spaces in front of the lines which is best for readers as the code is formatted. – Malipivo Apr 15 '14 at 14:40
  • @Malipivo, Ok I included my code – BetterEnglish Apr 15 '14 at 14:55
