Uploading the logo

The logo is our brand identity, from which we get identified among visitors of the site. When Installing the theme your default logo will be a text logo.

Logos can be specific on each page or post (including portfolio items & shop products) using the Parameters and Options , so this logo you set here will be a general logo for the whole site.

To set a logo for your site, no matter if it’s image or text you will need to follow this guide:

  1. Go to Laborator > Theme Options
  2. Choose Branding from the options list in Theme Options.
  3. Make sure you have selected the Branding Settings from the tabs above.

 

If you want to upload a logo image then follow the steps below:

  1. Switch the Brand Logo to Yes.
  2. Some extra options will show, click the Upload button and upload your site logo.
  3. Make sure you have selected the Branding Settings from the tabs above.
  4. Set Logo Width, type 300px if the logo is 600px and it will show in high quality for retina devices.
  5. Set Mobile Width by setting the maximum logo width for the logo on mobile phones.

You can use a SVG logo, but you will need to install SVG Support plugin as WordPress does not allow SVG images to be uploaded in the media files, this will allow you to upload and use them.

If your logo doesn’t change on any page, then please go to that page, and click Edit Page then you will see Parameters and Options area > Logo & Menu, remove the logo.

 

To use a text logo simply switch to No the Brand Logo and enter the title of your site in the field above.
