Is there a plugin where you can upload image "logo" for use in the site's theme rather than the admin area?

No, not really. This wouldn't be a plugin since every theme is different. Some themes have this functionality built in, though.

  • I can only underline what john writes, some themes provide such a feature and then you can edit the header image in your backend -> appearance.

There is no plugin that I know of, but you could add this code to your functions.php file. It would accomplish what you're looking for:

// Add a custom logo to the admin pages.  Image _MUST_ be 30x31, located in the theme images folder and named 'admin-logo.gif'.
function admin_logo() {
    $logo = dirname(__FILE__).'/images/admin-logo.gif';
    $logourl = get_bloginfo('template_directory').'/images/admin-logo.gif';

    if (file_exists($logo)) {
        echo '
            <style type="text/css">
                #header-logo { background-image: url('.$logourl.') !important; }

add_action('admin_head', 'admin_logo');

The function will check the images folder in your theme for a file named admin-logo.gif, and if found will add a CSS call to the page header to replace the stock WP logo. As mentioned in the comment, the image MUST be 30x31 pixels.


The logo is controlled by the theme ... so you'll have to use a theme that offers that option.

Alternatively, you could edit the them to change the logo.


+1 on using a theme that supports logos. Unless you are an experienced developer you really want to do as little editing of CSS and PHP as possible.
