Setup a logo or change your Site Title

Seasonal Pro 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.

NOTE For this theme, I am using the WordPress Custom Header feature as a way to include your logo. You will have the option to crop the logo if needed.

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 >> Header Logo
  3. Click on “Add new image“, browse or upload your logo.
    upload logo
  4. Click on “Select and Crop“, but 99% of the time, you will probably be choosing “Skip Cropping“.
    select cropskip cropping
  5. Click “Save & Publish” at the top of your customizer column.

Show or Hide the Title and Tagline

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Site Title & Tagline
  2. Find the “Show Site Title” and “Show Tagline” checkboxes, and to hide them, uncheck the boxes; to show, check each one.
