Picking a name for your video site is an important part of your branding, as is uploading a logo for your site.
Picking a Site Name
To pick a name for your site, hover your cursor over ‘Video Site’ tab at the top of the page, and select ‘Theme Design.’ From there, navigate to the ‘Style’ tab and enter your desired site name in the corresponding field. You can then continue to make other changes to your video website, or click ‘Publish Changes’ to push your site name live.
Your site name will be in your site title (for search engines and at the top of your browser window), and in the copyright at the bottom of the page. If you don’t have a logo, it will also appear in the header of your site.
Uploading a Logo
Adding a logo to your site will help your visitors recognize your video website and help keep your site’s appearance consistent with other web properties you own. It will also enhance the look of your website.
To upload a logo, click ‘Upload Your Site Logo’ while in the Theme Design section of your SproutVideo account, navigate to the desired file on your computer, and click ‘Open.’ You can then continue to make other changes to your video website, or click ‘Publish Changes’ to publish your logo on your live site.
Your logo image will show up in the header of your site instead of your site name. Images with a transparent background (usually .PNGs) are best, but we accept GIFs and JPGs too. The max file size that we accept is 500KB.
