Alternative way to Change Site Logo

OOTB SharePoint allows you to change the logo of the page from the default:  titlegraphic.gif image to another image by going into site settings > Title, Description, and Icon.

The following method is a way to add a new logo to your page with just CSS. If you wanted to make this more global you will need to use an alternate method to override the default CSS classes.

  • Upload your new logo to either the server or to a list on your site.
  • Add a Content Editor webpart to the page.
  • Add in the following to the source viewer.

background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: top left;
visibility: hidden;
width: 126px;


  • In the example above I have uploaded the xyzcorp.gif logo to the images folder on the server.
  • Make sure you modify the elements above in bold green: logo name, height, and width (of logo).
  • Save the page and you should now have the new logo on the page.
