Changing the Site Logo

You can customise the look and feel of your Confluence site by changing the logos.

You can change:

  • the site logo
  • the default space logo for all spaces
  • the space logo for individual spaces.

The Site Logo appears in the header and is visible throughout Confluence. You need Confluence Administrator permissions to change the site logo.  

To change the site logo:

  1. Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration

  2. Choose Site Logo and Favicon.
  3. Choose Browse to upload a new logo.
  4. Choose Show Logo Only  or Show Logo and Title  depending on whether you wish the SIte Title to display in the header.
  5. Choose Save

Confluence's Auto Look and Feel will detect the colours in your new logo, and change the site colour scheme to match. 

If you would prefer to use the default colour scheme with your custom logo go to  > General Configuration > Colour Scheme > Edit and then choose Reset to revert back to the default scheme.

Changing the site icon (favicon)

You can also change the site favicon (the icon that appears in your browser tab). You need Confluence Administrator permissions to do this. 

  1. Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration
  2. Choose Site Logo and Favicon
  3. Locate your image file and choose Upload.

You can upload PNG, GIF, JPEG, or ICO files. For best results images should be square, and at least 48x48 pixels.

The Space Logo appears in the sidebar and as an icon in the Sites Directory.  If you are using the Documentation theme the Space Logo displays beside the Space Title. 

The default space logo applies to all spaces that do not have a custom space logo applied - see Changing a Space's Logo

You need to be a Confluence Administrator to change the default space logo.

To change the default space logo:

  1. Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration

  2. Choose Default Space Logo in the left-hand panel.
  3. Choose Logo:ON 
  4. Choose Browse to upload a new logo
  5. Choose Upload Logo 
  6. Choose Save

Space Administrators can change the logo for their space. This overrides the default space logo and any changes to the default space logo will not appear in these spaces. See example above - 'Sample Space' has a custom logo.

See Changing a Space's Logo to find out how to change the logo in a specific space.
