Reasons and Causes of Logo Shrinking Issue

When facing the challenge of a shrunken logo in the header of your Dawn theme on mobile, there can be several reasons behind this issue. One common cause is the responsiveness settings of the theme, which may be forcing the logo to reduce its size to fit different screen sizes. Additionally, conflicting CSS styles or custom code snippets could also interfere with the logo display, making it appear much smaller than intended.

Guide to Making the Logo Bigger in Header

To solve the problem and make your logo bigger in the header of the Dawn theme, follow these steps:

  1. Access Theme Code: Go to your Shopify dashboard and navigate to Online Store > Themes. Find the Dawn 13.01 theme and click on 'Actions' > 'Edit Code'. This will open the theme files for customization.

  2. Locate Header Code: Look for the header section within the theme files. You may find this in the 'theme.liquid' file or under a specific header template file.

  3. Adjust Logo Size: Within the header code, locate the CSS styling for the logo. You can typically find this under a class such as '.site-logo' or similar. Increase the 'font-size' or 'height' property to make the logo larger.

  4. Save Changes: Once you've adjusted the logo size, make sure to save your changes and then preview the theme to see the updated logo on mobile.

  5. Test Responsiveness: Finally, test the responsiveness of the logo by checking the website on different mobile devices to ensure the logo appears appropriately sized.
