Now that you have installed OpenCart and configured the general system settings, you may want to add your store logo to the website. Adding a store logo can help with branding your business and add personalization to your eshop. Uploading your store logo is easily accomplished from the OpenCart Dashboard. 

  1. Log into your OpenCart Dashboard.
  2. Go to System > Settings
  3. Select your Store Name by placing a check mark next to it and click "Edit"
  4. Go to the Image Tab
  5. opencart_settings_7
  6. Go to the first section labeled "Store Logo." Select "Browse Files" and the image manager will open a new window.
  7. opencart_settings_8
  8. Click upload. Select the image file you want to use for your store logo on your local computer and click "Open"
  9. opencart_settings_9
  10. A popup will verify the upload was successful. Click OK.
  11. Now double click on the image you just uplaoded and you've now successfully set up your store logo.

When you visit your website in a web browser you should see the logo in the upper left corner.

Hello Rehan,

Were you able to upload your logo in the OpenCart admin dashboard? If it does appear to be working in the admin area, is it just completely missing from the front-end? Or is there a missing image icon there indicating your browser couldn't download it?

If you'd like to provide your URL we can remove it from your post before posting it in public. If it's showing up in the admin, we can take a look to see why the image might not be getting loaded in.

Thanks Jacob ! Thanks for your reply. I have uploaded my logo to my dashboard and select it. But not showing in the front-end. It's showing alt text instead of the logo on the front end.

Please have a look. Here is the URL:

Hello Rehan,

No problem, it looks like the image is linked properly in the HTML itself:

However trying to go directly to that image results in a 500 internal server error. Which is odd, because it seems like any URL you type in that doesn't exist is giving a 500, instead of a 404 error page.

Your image slider pictures are loading, albeit from a /image/cache/data/ data directory.

But like I said if you type in a file that doesn't exist it throws a 500.

Have you possibly recently setup anything in your .htaccess file or a plugin to redirect 404 errors to a PHP script for handling, and that's causing a 500 error somehow?

If you have access to your error logs, you should be able to see the actual 500 error instead of the generic one viewed from the front-end of the site.

Hello Rehan,

This doesn't appear to be an issue directly with OpenCart, it sounds like you have something go bad at the server level before that.

Are you able to view error logs on your server to see what might be the issue? You might need to contact your host to have them look at the Apache error log if not.

Hi Rehan,

Unfortunately I was unable to access your OpenCart admin menu with those login details.

But looking at your site I see the logo is showing up now! That's great, were you able to figure out what was wrong in OpenCart, or was it a server problem?

I see the URL is the same.

But trying now results in a proper 404 error, instead of showing the 500 error.

Glad to see it's working for you!

Just wondering if there's a way to change the address that the logo links to.  It's currently linked to root directory, but i also have a index.html which is taking preference.. and I'd like it to link to index.php.

any ideas?

Hello Gethin,

You would need to modify the header.tpl file for your theme. This file for the default theme is located at catalog/view/theme/default/template/common/header.tpl

The line (approx line 55) looks like this:
<div id="logo"><a href="/support/<?php echo $home; ?>"><img src="/support/<?php echo $logo; ?>" title="<?php echo $name; ?>" alt="<?php echo $name; ?>" /></a></div>

Replace the <?php echo $home; ?> with the URL you wish to link to.

This will reflect all across your site so that when someone clicks the logo it will go to the front page of your store.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
