"What is and how to have a FAVICON!"
Look up at the top of the screen and see that your BROWSER tabs have little pictures in them?
WA has a WA image - all the sites here will have a picture of a pc window and 2 red lines running down it - until you add your own picture!
These are called FAVICONS and add branding to your website pages.
They are quite special and are named as : favicon.ico
Therefore we need a special image editor to take our image and turn it from a .png to .ico
Relax say me! Why not look at a few samples of it in action?
Create the image you want to appear sized 32 x32 or 64 x 64.
.png is probably the best option.
Remember it is very small when uploaded to the browser!!
If you are really stuck, you can give my blogs love on Facebook, and any other like feature you stumble across, comment him everywhere - and then beg the OldMule to do it for you!
Just ask nicely and he will probably do it for you by sending him your website link and let him just make what he thinks will work best for you!
...... AND THAT FOLKS WAS REALLY THE HARD PART!!!
Now we need to go and grab one handy little beast of a plugin!
Search plugins for the: - Heroic Favicon Generator - Ta-Daah!
1. "Do you want to install it??" - [ "Are you sure?" - "Yes already!"]
2. Press "Select favicon" button - and find it on pc.
3. The picture will now appear on the Left side of the screen in Media Library.
4. Select the picture by click once.
5. Box on right - Enter text : Title : Favicon
Caption : Whatever
Alt text : My favicon - Important
Description : My favicon ... more if you want.
6. Leave all boxes ticked! In fact they are in your imagination only! They are not there!
7. Scroll down to SAVE CHANGES - Done and for many up to date devices!!!!
It may take a bit of time to see them, if you login on someone else’s pc you may get to see them immediately, or open a different browser and try too.
I hope you find this informative and that I have simplified the points herein.
