Introducing Site Logos: Personalize Your Blog, Display Your Brand

We’re excited to announce our new Site Logo feature.

One of the most common requests we’ve received from WordPress.com users is the ability to add a logo to your site. While some premium themes have their own type of logo uploader, as soon as you switched your theme, the logo would disappear. But not any more! Today, we’re excited to announce the new Site Logo feature.

With this new feature, you just need to upload your logo once. Your logo will appear on any of our supported themes, regardless of how often you switch themes. Each theme has been custom-tailored to ensure your logo will look its best and display appropriately, whether on a mobile device or a large screen.

In addition to offering support for over a dozen themes — from our best business-styled themes like Motif and Forefront to all-time favorites like Oxygen — we’ll continue to add support for even more themes over time (as well as new ones upon release).

To get started, check out the Site Logo support page for details on adding, changing, and removing a logo to your WordPress.com site. Enjoy!

    Why wouldn’t a business want to make its favicon and blavatar be its logo?

      Favicons and blavatars are always square, so having the two features separate at this point makes sense. Of course, setting the same image as your logo will certainly work.

    I’ve just realized there’s no Site Logo Option for the Traveler theme. Will you add one in the near future?

    Thank you. I’ve immediately set mine up.

    For anyone trying to make a circular site title only to find that the surround is square, remember that a jpeg always has a solid background.

    A png image, however, can be saved with a transparent background, so you can get a circular image.

    Look at the video and you will see that the ‘espresso’ image is a png.

    Great feature, thanks! Now I just wish one could search for themes that have this feature (the way one can check Custom Header, Custom Menu, Custom Background, etc. on the Change Theme page: http://en.wordpress.com/themes/).

    It is the easiest way to add a logo to your WordPress website. WordPress provides great support and that’s why people love to use WordPress. Thanks a lot for sharing awesome information.
