There should be a set of metal cards attached inside the fireplace.
First you should read everything there.
I know you have to first light the pilot light.
And then there should be a wall switch.
The problem I have currently is that it won't stay lit when the artificial logs are there.

SOURCE: gas fireplace will not stay lit
there is a probe that is in the one of the flame... This once heated builds up enough pressure do to the heat to keep the shut/off valve open... (reason, if the flame went out the gas would continue to flow) this "thermocouple is replaceable !! contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Sometimes when you turn a gas heater off for some time, if the source tank has been turned off, the line will bleed the propane and the line will contain mostly air. This is especially true if the supply line is long. In order to light the pilot, you will have to hold the pilot lighting button down for a while (a full minute or longer, depending on the size and length of the supply line) before pure propane arrives at the pilot light jet. You should keep a lighted lighter at the jet so that when the gas arrives, the lighter will light it. After the pilot lights, you will have to keep the button pressed long enough for the thermocouple to get hot enough to set the pilot to stay on. When it is hot enough, you should be able to release the pressed lighting button and the pilot should stay on. If it does, you should be able to light the heater. If the pilot jet never lights, gas is not getting to the regulator. If the pilot will not stay lit after a period of time waiting for it to heat the thermocouple, the thermocouple or the regulator may be bad and need replacement. :-)

There is a valve which you are bypassing when you press the pilot button. It is usually a sealed hydralic valve which holds the gas on as long as a flame is on the bulb. This expands the fluid and keeps the gas valve open. If the bulb moved and is not in the flame, or near enough, it will not stay on. Also since it sat for a year the internal workings of the valve could have "gummed" up. You need to replace the valve. You did not mention the name or model of the unit. Do a search with your units brand name followed by heater followed by parts. This should return dealers who can supply the part you need. Let me know if you need anymore help.
Thanks for using FixYa

yes it is important to stack them right but just trying to figure it out by the depressions is not right you need a diagram to show you or just call service agent its better to do right or it will coast you later when it causes your heater to break down i've seen various ways that people try and do logs even following the book my best suggestion is call service agent they should know how to do it correctly
