Change the Site Title and Description or upload a Logo

Aberration starts you off with the Site Title and Tagline (description), but you have a few 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 tagline – You can have a logo above your Site Title & Tagline

By default, the first option is set for the Site Title and Tagline, but everyone will have their preferences. Please note that your tagline is the text below the site title.

RECOMMENDATION With this theme, the title/logo box area is somewhat limited in size, more so in height, so I would recommend keeping the title, tagline, and/or logo to a minimum if you can. Anything that has too much height will push the box down and will also move the menu out of its current location and overlap the banner transparency overlay. If you need the extra height, you will need to use some custom CSS to adjust the height of the overlay to make it bigger in height. However, the box will expand horizontally if you have a longer title or tagline. I also believe for a theme style such as Aberration offers, a text based title is better than a logo.

Uploading a Logo

  1. Prepare your logo image – I would recommend a transparent logo so that the background shows up behind it. The size you choose should fit within the sidebar, but I recommend not making it too big as you will need additional space for your social icons and menu below.
  2. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Site Identity
  3. Click on “Select image“, browse or upload your logo.
