Upload a Custom Favicon
Have you ever noticed a small image on your browser’s tab while visiting a site? This is called a favicon, and adding one to your site is a simple way to make your branding more memorable for visitors and make your link stand out in a list of bookmarks.
You’ll find the option to upload a favicon for your site on the Website > General Settings page of your dashboard.
Click upload to search your computer for a favicon image you’d like to use, keeping in mind the following guidelines:
- The image should be square with a pixel size no larger than 64x64.
- The image must be saved as a .jpg, .png, .gif or .ico file. Other file formats won’t work.
If the upload is a success, you’ll see the favicon on the settings page.
You’ll need to publish to make the favicon live on your site, though there’s a good chance that it won’t show up in your own browser right away upon publish. This is because favicons are cached by browsers, so you may want to clear your browser cache after you publish.
First-time visitors to your site will be able to see your favicon, as will anyone visiting in a browser they haven’t used on a previous visit.
Still not seeing the new favicon on your end? Try viewing your site with something other than your usual browser - you’ll likely be able to see it then, though it may still take some time for the cache to update in your browser of choice.
