You can change or remove the Lyris Logo, Lyris Face and Lyris Home Button. See Lyris Face Graphic, Lyris Logo Graphic and Lyris Home Button .

Every page of the Lyris web interface is created on-the-fly by a Perl-based program. If you want to customize the Lyris web interface beyond these options mentioned above, you can modify the Lyris web interface to do anything you wish by editing the Perl source code. You will need to be a moderately experienced Perl programmer to do this. The entire Web Interface is contained in the source file You are welcome to modify it as you see fit to suit your needs.
