What is a logo?


A Logo is a design that relates to one organization. which is used by a company for advertising material, and signs as an emblem by which the company can easily be recognized, also called logotype. The logotype is a trademark, symbol of a company name. You may also think of a Logo as a simple visual mark to identify your company product or service


What is a Custom Logo?


Custom logo is nothing but the logo of one's business. Using a custom logo it allows the website owners to update an image of their website or brand which will be replaced at the top of their website. You can upload a custom logo from Appearance > Header, in your admin panel. But note that the custom logo should be added first to your theme using this command - add_theme_support(), and then be called in your theme using the_custom_logo(). Usually, a custom logo is optional but theme authors should use this function if they include a logo to their theme.


How to enable the Custom Logo feature?


If you are looking to enable the custom logo feature then you need to contact our support team. And the reason why this feature is not enabled by default is that you need to use a specific function to display the custom logo. So if you are not using this option then the custom logo will not be enabled so it is useless if you are trying to change it.


To enable the custom logo feature you need to use the add_theme_support() function. One of the best ways to do this is by using a callback function and the after_setup_theme action. So you can use the below command in the function.php file of your theme to enable the support for custom logo option.


function mytheme_setup() {




add_action('after_setup_theme', 'mytheme_setup');


Once after using the above commands now you will be able to select a logo. But the problem is that it will still not display. To do so you can use the function the_custom_logo() anywhere you want to see the logo. It will automatically echo the right HTML code to display the logo: an image in the right size, encapsulated into a link redirecting to the homepage.
