Astroid by default provides 4 different types of layouts, that are available in the layout manager.
Each of these layout’s core files are located in the following folder.

You can copy the whole layout folder to the following path:
JOOMLA_SITE_PATH/templates/YOUR_ASTROID_TEMPLATE/astroid/elements/banner/ and modify the layout file
banner.php to fit your needs.
You MUST copy both the .xml and .php fildes in order for the override to work.
