Setting Up Your Logo and Header Text

Every Jimdo Template has a dedicated space near the top of the page for your Logo, a piece of Header Text, or both. These two items will appear on every page to help give your visitors a cohesive experience as they navigate throughout your website.


In many cases, you don't need both a logo and text in this area. If your logo clearly has the name of your business on it, there is no need to write the same name in the Header Text, so you can just leave it blank. If you don't have a logo yet, you can leave the Logo Area blank.


If you leave the Header Text or Logo Area blank, you'll still see a large empty block of space in Edit Mode, but this area will not appear when you look at your website in View Mode.


Adding a logo

To upload a logo, click on the block that says Logo Area. Then you'll see a prompt to select your logo file. For best results start with a .PNG file with a transparent background. 


You can adjust the size of your logo by clicking on the bottom corner of the image and dragging it to the size that you want. You can also align the logo center, left, or right. 


Please note we support the following image file types to be uploaded: .png, .jpeg and .gif.

Changing the Header Text

To change the Header Text, click on the existing text at the top or click on the block that says Header Text, and type in the text you want. Then, you can change the font, size, and color of this text using the Style Editor.
