Your organisation’s logo is visible in several areas across your site. This guide will show you how to add a new logo or update an existing one.
Step 1 - Navigate
You can find the Logos page on your platform by going to the following, whilst logged in as a site administrator:
Site Administration > Appearance > Logos
Step 2 - Changing your logo
With the Logos page open, you’ll now see three different logo options to choose from. Each of which can be used to alter how your logo appears in different areas of the site. We’ll touch on how each of these appear on your site below and any best practices with regards to sizing and formatting.
Logo type - Logo
This is the main logo which will be visible in the top left corner of your site navigation panel, visible on any page within your platform.
This is typically your “full” logo, which should be wider than it is tall in order to ensure the best visibility. Square logos aren’t typically used here as it can shrink the logo to fit the space provided, thus making the logo slightly less clear. High resolution images can be used here as this will automatically be scaled down for use within the provided logo area.
Logo type - Compact logo
This is your more compacted logo and will be used on areas of your site where a smaller logo is required. For this, we typically recommend using a “square” logo sizing format rather than a wider logo. Text should be kept to a minimum to ensure that the logo is easily legible at all sizes.
Logo type - Favicon
The favicon icon is displayed in the browser tabs for your site.
This is a much smaller “logo” which should act as a visual representation of your logo with no additional text included. By default, if a favicon is not provided, the Moodle favicon will display instead.
Step 3 - Save
Once you have made the required changes to the logos on your site, you can then scroll to the bottom of the page and click “save changes”.
