Hey everyone,

 

Like many other users, I can't seem to change the logo on my SPO site.

 

I created this site via Team -> go to Sharepoint site.

 

I've tried the many solutions:

  • change the look
  • change logo in site information
  • replaced logo file with __siteIcon__.png in site assets, gets automatically re-written by system

 

I get this error when I try to upload the picture via site information. Does anyone recognize how to adjust this setting?

 

Thanks!

Hello @MitchMicro2020 

Try to change the site theme, close the tab or browser, then open SharePoint site go to Site information and change the logo.

This resolved my issue.

Hi @Alireza Rahimifarid,

 

I've had no success, since the creation of the group, changing the logo while changing the theme as well.

 

Thanks for the reply!

@MitchMicro2020 take a look at 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/troubleshoot/sites/error-when-changing-o365-site-logo

 

"Make sure the O365 group property "HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled" is not set to True. Exchange or Global administrators should use Set-UnifiedGroup to set HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled to False."

 

Teams for example sets this to True by default on sites created thru teams

@Bruno Aleixo Thanks for the reply! I'll give this a try and let you know if it works.

 

Cheers!

This sounds like you are hitting a cache issue so try hitting ctrl-F5 in the browser. If that doesn't work, make sure that the new logo image is properly checked in and published (assuming it is in the SharePoint site and not in /_layouts/). ... That will bypass almost all caching.

Try clearing the broswer memory. I closed the browser I was working in (Edge), opened the Sharepoint Site in a different browser (Chrome) and then the logo changed successfully.  I have had this happen a few times and I think the last time I resolved it was by clearing the browser memory.
