Change SharePoint 2010 Site Logo Via CSS

I thought that I created this post before, but I guess it was either the SharePoint 2007 Logo, or the SharePoint 2010 Search Button. So here it is.

Very much like the two examples above, if you simply want to change the site logo via CSS globally, or for a single site. Without having to go to the Site Actions > Site Settings > Title and description > adding in a URL to site logo. Then simply do the following:

  • Copy your image anywhere users can access it
  • Paste in the following CSS into your custom CSS file

background-image: url(/_layouts/images/centraladmin_security_48x48.png);
background-position:left center;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
.s4-titlelogo > a > img{
visibility: hidden;
width: 48px;
height: 48px;

  • Update the background image URL path above in red to where you uploaded the image
  • Change the width and height above in Blue to match the image dimensions.

It is possible to change the logo directly in the properties of the site.
I do not have a SharePoint 2010 under my hand to point it for you but I have done it before so I am sure

Yes, if you simply go to site settings, Title, description, and icon. You can manually add in a URL path to the logo but that only changes it for that specific site. By using CSS you can easily update all sites with just CSS and it can be made globally.

Good post!

Most people don't realize that a lot of design customization in SharePoint can be done just by CSS modifications.

I would like to change the link in the logo, so once you click on the new logo will redirect to another page.

How To: Hide Left Side Navigation on Home Page

I was recently asked: "How can I hide the side nav bar on the main homepage layout ?? I want to be able to use the side NAV with in the team site etc etc, but I don't want it on the front page.. " There are a couple of ways to do this in SharePoint 2010. If you are using a non-publishing site you can add a Content Editor Web Part to the page and add the following to the HTML Source.
body #s4-leftpanel
display: none;
margin-left: 0px;
Basically the CSS above hides the left navigation Div, and then sets the content area to not have a left margin. Once you are done, simply modify the web part and hide it on the page. If you are using a publishing site for your homepage simply add the same styles specified above to a custom page layout. That way if you have a need for other pages that do not need the left side navigation you can re-use the page layout.

This will be the first of many SharePoint 2010 posts. I will be focusing on a few of the main CSS classes used for SharePoint 2010 Public Beta.

The default CSS given below are just highlights of the full CSS attributes for that class.I will be using a basic team site as my base for the screenshots.

I hope this post will help many of you feel comfortable with using the Content Query Web Part.In this post I will walk you through the process of creating a content query web part and configuring it to show custom field types. I will also give details on how to use XSLT to stylize and format the data being pulled. I will be using the following scenario as an example. Say that you had a site collection with a top level publishing site. This publishing site would display a the most recent blog posts from all blog sites within its own site collection. To solve this problem we will use a Content Query Web Part and a customized ItemStyle.xsl using XSLT.Please note that the “SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure” needs to be enabled at the site collection to display the content query web part.Step 1: Add a Content Query Web Part to PageNavigate to the site that you want the blog posts to show up and click on edit page.
