Header logo

Last updated: Feb 21, 2019


A logo in the header of a website showcases the brand and usually also acts as a home navigation link. In this example, the store logo should be saved as an image file, ideally an SVG, in the Assets directory of your theme. The purpose of wrapping with an h1 only on the homepage is to ensure a top-level heading is available on that page. Subsequent landing pages should feature a unique, visible h1 heading describing the page purpose, and therefore the logo only outputs an h1 on the homepage of a store.

  1. Place the following code in within the <header> element or container of your theme, or wherever you wish the logo to appear.
  2. This code assumes you have a file called logo.svg in the Assets directory of your theme. Alternatively, you can replace this with a settings variable, define those settings in section {% schema %}, and allow a merchant to upload a logo image through the theme editor.
  3. itemscope,itemtype and itemprop are defined as per the specification for organizations.
{%- if == 'index' -%}
  <h1 itemscope itemtype="">
{%- else -%}
  <div itemscope itemtype="">
{%- endif -%}

  <a href="/" itemprop="url">
    <img src="{{ "logo.svg" | asset_url }}"
      alt="{{ }}"

{%- if == 'index' -%}
{%- else -%}
{%- endif -%}
