Does your site need a favicon? This post will cover what it is and how to get one the easy way.
What is a favicon? It is the website’s icon on your browser tab. On this website, it’s a happy face.
On craigslist for example, it is a peace symbol.
Here’s how to get one for yourself the easy way…
- Pick the image you would like to use. Obviously, it can’t be too elaborate. It will be reduced to 16x16px image, so it can’t have too much going on. Just a symbol or a letter like PayPal’s.
- Go to this favicon generator that makes it simple & it’s completely free.
- Download the file that it generated. Your “favicon.ico” file to your computer.
- Upload that file to the root of your website’s theme folder… /wp-content/themes/your-theme/.
Sometimes your theme will provide a place for you to upload (or link to) your file.
