Change the favicon in your website

Hello everyone! This post will help you people to change the favicon of your website in WordPress.

Well, first of all I myself had no idea on what a favicon is, until a colleague of mine asked me to change it in his site.

Thanks to him, for letting me know a favicon and I figured out how to change one using WordPress.

For those who would like to know what a favicon is,

The Favicon is an icon associated with a URL that is variously displayed, as in a browser’s address bar or next to the site name in a bookmark list.

Now in the following image do you see the google icon magnified? Well that’s a favicon.


How to change favicon in your site?

Well the steps are going to be very simple because I’ll be using a plugin to change your favicon

The plugin that I preferred was “All In One Favicon” which I downloaded from the following site:

  1. Download the plugin which is in a zipped format.
  2. Upload the plugin in WordPress.
  • Go to Plugin(left side bar) and select Add new
  • Search for “All In One Favicon” plugin
  • Select the plugin and click “Install now”
  • A pop-up window would appear. Confirm the installation
  • Click Proceed
  • Once installed ,select “Activate Plugin”
  1. Now select Settings of the “All In One Favicon”
  2. Upload your icon image(I tried an image of size 32×32) in “ICO Frontend” textbox.
  3. Save Changes

Refresh your site and check out your favicon. Cheers!
