Hello all,

 

I have about 10 sub-sites where I want the logo to link to the site collection they are sub-sites of.

 

I found some configurations in which I applied to the master page of one sub-site to test it out. Specifically the SPLinkButton command

 

However, it's not working. I'm not sure what else I could do. I am working in SP Designer 2013, saving the master page, clicking the default button. Still no luck. Anyone have any tips?

 

Thanks

What version do you have in place? SharePoint OnPremises or SPO? In case this is a SPO: are those subites modern or classic sites?

@Juan Carlos González Martín Sorry I should've clarified more! I am on Sharepoint Online

I have changed all the subsites to modern now. I noticed when I used classic, it does work. However, on the modern page does not. I believe modern pages don't have any capability with master pages, if I am correct (?)

Well, I was suspecting that and unfortunately you cannot customize the logo in the way you want when you are on modern. The only way I can think you can do this is by means of a SPFx extension that could add that link, but I'm not sure this will work
