Hey everyone! Today, I’m going to tell you how to use a simple plug-in that can customize your blog in a big way. I’m talking about the All in One Favicon plug-in for WordPress.
So first off, what is a favicon anyway? A favicon is that tiny icon that shows up in the web browser tab that lets you know what page you are currently viewing. It’s a great way to brand your website/blog using a logo or symbol.
Favicons are generally created from a 16px by 16px .png or .ico image. I have created a few cute favicons (saved as .png files) for you to try out at home so you can follow along with this tutorial. Here are the favicon’s included in the file:
You can download them HERE. Or, feel free to create your own!
First, we need to install the All in One Favicon plugin. Go to your WordPress Dashboard and click on “Plugins” and then “Add New.”
Search for “All in One Favicon” by Arne Franken and click on “Install Now” under the name. It will ask you if you are sure and just click OK. Then, activate the plugin on the next screen.
Now you will see the All in One Favicon plugin under your “Installed Plugins.”
To upload your custom favicon so it will be present on your website/blog, click on “Settings” underneath the “All in One Favicon” title.
Find your favicon file you saved to your computer. After it uploads, be sure to push “Save Changes” at the bottom of the screen.
