A company logo is an essential part of any new website. Having memorable, clear branding is a great way to make your brand more recognisable and known to your customers. Great branding helps to create trust in your company and should be displayed proudly on your website, social media and any physical items such as business cards or flyers. If you'd like to give your logo and branding a refresh, our team will be more than happy to help - for a no-obligation quote, contact our team today.
Before adding your logo, we'd highly recommend optimising it so that the file size is as small as possible without damaging the quality of the logo. Larger file sizes can cause your website to take longer to load, so it's vital that every image is optimised on your store.
How to Add Your Logo
First, login into your OpenCart admin area and navigate to System > Settings. Here you'll see a list of each of your stores - edit the store you'd like to change the logo on.
Once in the store settings, navigate to the "Image" tab and click on the "Store Logo" image. Click the blue pencil button to edit the image and the image manager will display.
Upload your logo to your desired folder. After you've selected your logo, click save at the top right of the page. And you're done!
A good tip from us to you: Make sure to name your images! Rather than uploading a logo called "logo-final-2.png", try something descriptive such as "welford-media-logo.png". Applying this logic to all images across your site will go a long way in helping with SEO.
Custom OpenCart Themes
If you're using a premade theme, it's possible that the method to change your store logo is now controlled through the themes control panel, so if following this guide hasn't had the effect you wanted, try the theme settings.
If you're using a custom theme, your designer may have hardcoded the logo meaning that any admin changes you make in an attempt to update the logo won't work. There may have been a reason for hardcoding the logo, such as to ensure consist styling, so if possible, speak to your web designer to get this changed.
