How do I add a Logo

I’m new here and coming from the Drupal world. I built some WordPress sites back in the day before moving to Drupal so I have a little background but need to hone my skills

I installed a few different themes but under the theme not all of them seem to let you add a logo. Is the answer that I have to find a theme that allows for a logo or is there an easy way to add it to a theme?

Thanks.

    Hey Jeremy, it really depends on the theme/framework you’re using has it integrated into the header.php. With some you can add it via custom code, some will have a specific function to upload a logo and others will only have the generic Appearance > Header option where you can upload a custom header and include it as part of the header. Some themes may have the option of using text or a picture and use the Site Title / Tagline boxes in Settings > General dashboard menu as the text option, others may have it built in separately and only use those hooks for page title information. Hope this helps.

    Hi Jeremy-

    Welcome to the wordpress world! I’m relatively new here too and have also tried many themes. Generally if you search around the “Theme Options” there will be a place to easily customize the logo (eg under branding or header or similar). I believe (though I could be wrong) that all of the WPMU DEV themes have this option, though as Gabe said, it can depend by theme how it’s done.

    Hope that’s a little bit helpful :slight_smile:

    Thanks,

    Cynthia

    Gabe and Cynthia,

    Thank you for the amazingly quick response. I’m not used to this. I have become accustomed to posting a question, moving on to other dev and a few days (or weeks) later having someone help me out.

    I will take a look at some of the other themes and see if one fits before diving into the custom code arena. I really want to just get my friend’s e-commerce store ported over from Drupal quickly and then over the next couple weeks I can do a deeper dive into the custom code and the guts of wordpress.

    Thanks again. You have quickly reinforced my decision to migrate from Drupal.

    Greetings Goelji,

    Thank you for the great question and though indeed most of them do, I cannot say that all of them do – saying all would certainly come back to haunt me.

    Have a GREAT week and thank you for being a WPMU DEV Community Member!

    Cheers, Joe

    Thanks Joe. As I continue my journey of learning everything that I possibly can about WordPress, I’m sure that I will be posting quite frequently. The plugins look great, as do the themes, but the selling point for me was having the support when I inevitably get stuck trying to fit a round peg in a square hole.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
