Adding a logo and favicon

One of the quickest and easiest changes you can make using our theme settings is to add your company logo and favicon. This guide covers how to add both and subsequently resize your logo, if required, to make sure you’re presenting your company brand in the best way possible.

By default, the logo is displayed within the header of your theme. The favicon is the small image displayed in the browser tab and next to the URL in the browser’s address bar.

Add a logo and favicon

To add or change the logo and favicon of your help center theme:

  1. In Zendesk Guide, click the Customize design icon (Customize icon) in the sidebar.

  2. Click Customize on the theme you want to edit.

  3. In the Settings panel, select the Brand section.

  4. Click the Replace link in the Logo setting to browse for and select an image.

You can change back to the default image for the logo or favicon at any time by clicking on the Revert link.

Once you’ve finished making changes, click Publish to save them.

Company logos, like people, come in all shapes and sizes. Depending on the image you select, you may want to adjust the size of your logo in the header of your theme to ensure that it looks its best. You can control the size of your company logo using the Logo height theme setting and, if necessary, adjust the height of the page header using the **Header

If you need to make direct changes to the size of your logo or change its aspect ratio you can do so in the header.hbs template of your theme.
