I've been making a few DOM modifications to the SuiteBar in 2016 using javascript/jquery and I've noticed that sometimes on first load the changes don't take at all or only some do. To fix it, reloading the page solves the problem.

I think our main issue is that we aren't using master pages but Control delegates instead and for some reason I haven't be able to force this script to load at the end of the page instead so I'm facing a timing issue on first load, likely cause the file isn't in the cache by then.

I'm trying to find a more consistent approach. This is what I'm doing:

$(function () {
    // Wait for resources, then do stuff
    SP.SOD.loadMultiple(['init.js', 'sp.core.js', 'sp.runtime.js', 'sp.js'], function () {
        // Prepare page
        var siteTitle = $('a.o365cs-nav-appTitle > span.o365cs-nav-brandingText');
                'href': myobject.currentPath(),
                'title': myobject.returnHomeTitle

    // Replace site logo and set link to home
            "src": myobject.siteLogo,
        .attr('href', myobject.currentPath());
  • Have you thought of injecting the code in the pagelayout? Commented Jun 1, 2017 at 20:20
  • @AhmedMahmoud what do you mean, editing the master page?

  • I was thinking that you can create a page layout and inject this code inside it, then create your pages off that page layout! Commented Jun 12, 2017 at 19:04

With the Release of the SharePoint 2016, Microsoft Introduced new PowerShell cmdlets which will set these things in a couple of lines.

If you are ok with PowerShell, you can follow below approach.

  1. To change Suite Navigation Branding Text

$webapp = Get-SPWebApplication “http://ca.krossfarm.com
$webapp.SuiteNavBrandingText = “Central Admin (Dev)”

  1. To Set the Logo

$webapp.SuiteNavBrandingLogoUrl ="http://ca.krossfarm.com1/Shared%20Documents/leaf-and-flames-logo.jpg"

$webapp.SuiteNavBrandingLogoTitle ="KrossFarm"
$webapp.SuiteNavBrandingLogoNavigationUrl = "http://ca.krossfarm.com"
