How To Use The Image Element To Add A Logo To A Header Layout
You can also use the Image Element to add a Logo to a Header Layout. To do this, you can simply insert an image as normal, or you can use the Dynamic Content option in the Image field. Under Site, there is a Logo option, and when you select this, you can choose a Logo Type (see below). You can select any of the three logo types (Default, Sticky and Mobile) in both Normal or Retina, or you can select the All option. This pulls the most appropriate logo from the Global Options Logo area as the image, depending on the size of your screen. NB. Just be aware, this method loads more content than adding a single image, and so likely affects page scores more than the simple method of adding a single image for the logo.
