How to upload a Favicon

What is a Favicon and how do I upload a Favicon?

A favicon is a small icon that represents a website in web browsers. It is a critical part of a website’s identity and appears next to the website’s name in the bookmarks/favorites bar and on browser tabs.

Favicons are used to enhance user experience by helping users find web pages faster, add a touch of professionalism, and build trust in users. They are also a branding tool that emphasizes the uniqueness of a brand. Favicons are found next to anything that identifies a website, including bookmarks, tabs, toolbar apps, history results, and search bars. 

A favicon is not the same as a logo, but it can be a visual representation of a website and business that users will identify with the brand based on the favicon used.

Follow these easy Steps to upload a Favicon:
  1. Create a 512x512px favicon image in the editing program of your choice. I recommend Canva.
  2. Save your favicon as a .png or .ico.
  3. In your WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance > Customize.
  4. Click on „Site Identity„.
  5. Under Site Icon, click „Select Image“ and upload your favicon.
  6. Save & Publish.
  7. Reload your site to see your new favicon in action!
  8. Enjoy 😉
