What's your favicon? It's the image beside your site name in your browser tab, see that ghastly looking red ladder thing? Ew, let's get rid of it!

Step 1: Watch the first half of this video that will provide you with a free tool to create your favicon, just watch up to the part where you download the image to your computer.

Step 2: There should either be an option in your "theme settings" to upload your favicon, in which case you just upload it. If it's not part of your theme, you will have to download a plug in. Watch this video to show you how:

May your favicon nightmares be over. Good day!

This is really cool! You can have animated .gif icons as well. Check out my animated icon on http://prosperouspartners.biz

Hi, I went to your website and saw your favicon but I didn't know what it represented and it wasn't animated. (Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Or is it Superman?) ~Marion

Thanks Lyra! I was able to change that ugly WP thing with something better. I was able to do that with just your two step description. Thanks so much for sharing!
