How To Set Up a Favicon on WordPress

Today I’m going to show you how to set up a favicon on WordPress. A favicon is a great small touch to make your blog or website look more professional. I always wanted one, and always thought that they would be way too complicated for me to figure out. But not so much anymore.

Wondering what a favicon is?  You see that little picture in your tab next to the name of the site that your currently looking at? That’s a favicon. Just another part of branding.

There are a couple ways to get your own favicon

One: hire someone to do it for you.

Two: a WordPress plugin.

This one is super simple I promise.

Head to your plugin – add new. Search for All in One Favicon.

Once you active it go into your settings. There are four different file options. I recommend ICO. It is recognized by all browsers even older versions of Explorer.

Using Favicon.cc upload the either a 16 x16 px or 32 x 32 px image that you wish to use for your favicon.
