Install your own favicon

Last Update: February 23, 2015

I just want to share some of the tricks I've learned creating my own favicon, the image which makes the tab in teh browser unique:

  1. Check if you already have the favicon function under customize or settings.
  2. If not, install and activate the plugin, I recommend "All in one favicon"
  3. Prepare an image in square format.
  4. Go to settings, open dashboard and upload the image - done :-)

It looks much more professional!

Hope it helps, Stefan

It worked! Just make sure to upload the .GIF file to the back end in the settings in the .GIF back end and your your URL in the Front end .GIF section (remember the http:// [no www])

Hi

It's the little image/logo next to the website's name/page in the tab of your web browser.
(see picture - I've highlighted them in yellow)

Hope that helps :)
