Uploading a favicon
Reinforce the visual identity of your site by using a favicon. Pictures can speak louder than words!
To add your own favicon to your site this is what you need to do:
- Click on Site > Site Properties.
- Click on the Favicon button.
- Click on "Upload a new favicon" to load one from your computer or "Browse for a favicon" to select a picture from the File Manager.
- To see what your favicon will look like, save your changes and click on "Preview".
Once you have selected your favicon, this will appear in the address bar of the web browser and in the browser tab for every page of your site.
Please note that Internet Explorer does not allow favicons to be displayed next to your URL or on the tab of the window. The favicon will be displayed if the site is bookmarked and in your Favourites folder. The best option would be to change to Firefox which does show the favicons in all three areas.
If you would like more information on how to create a cross browser favicon, please check out this thread where one of our Champs has given some instructions on how to do this: Cross Browser Favicon.
