KB User's Guide - SitePref Tab - Uploading a New Site Logo

NoteInformation symbol

You must have full administrative permissions in your space to perform these steps. This means access to the OwnerDocs, GroupDocs, SitePref, and Users tabs.

KB Admins, if you want to replace the group logo that displays in the upper left-hand corner of your internal and external KB sites, you can upload a new one under the SitePref tab. Follow the steps below.

If your KB site has the UW Theme for KB applied to it, please contact us at kb-team@doit.wisc.edu with your specifications. We are happy to help.
