Change the Site Title or upload a Logo

Longevity starts you off with the Site Title and Tagline, but you have a Several options:

  1. Site Title & Tagline – Text based title and site description
  2. Site Title – You can hide the tagline and just go with a title
  3. Logo – You can opt in for just a logo
  4. Logo with Title & tagline – You can have a logo above your Site Title & Tagline
  5. Logo with Tagline – You can have a logo with the Tagline, but no Site Title

By default, the first option is set for the Site Title and Tagline, but everyone will have their preferences. I will start with adding a Logo to your sidebar.

Uploading a Logo

  1. Prepare your logo image – ┬áThe size you choose should fit next to the site title without pushing things out of the way too much. I wouldn’t go more than 100px in width.
  2. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Site Identity
  3. Click on “Select Image“, browse or upload your logo.
    select image setting
    If all goes well, it should now look like this. You get the option to now change it or to remove the logo.

  4. Click “Save & Publish” at the top of your customizer column.
  5. When done, your site should show the logo and title similar to this:

NOTE When using a logo with your site title and tagline, it’s recommended you keep your logo image small enough that it does not cause obscure layouts. I would keep your logo somewhere up to around 100 x 100 pixels, although this is not required. Your logo will float to the left of the title, but remember you only have 490 pixels of horizontal space for your logo and title because your menu to the right will take up 690 pixels.
