Advanced Showcase, Unlimited Showcase and all our E-commerce packages can change their favicon with their own image. This little square icon is used by most browsers in the address bar, in favourites and next to the website title in the tabs. This tutorial explains how you can change your website's favicon and where to find pretty favicons free of charge.
A favicon (short for 'favourite + icon') is a small square icon associated with a website. Browsers display them in the address bar and next to the name of the site in the favourites. Browsers with tabbed interfaces also display the favicon next to the name of the page in the tabs.
With SiteW, changing your site's favicon is quick and easy. Go to the My websites page, click on the Dashboard > Settings > Favicon(*).
You can choose one of our available favicons, or send your own image. If you send a large image, it will be resized to be small and square.
(*) This option is only available for Advanced Showcase, Unlimited Showcase and all our E-commerce packages. Sites in the Essential Showcase or Starter packages can only have the favicon .
If you want to customize your favicon, upgrade to the next package (domain name, more pages, interactive blocks, professional designs, etc.).
You can download free icons from a number of websites. Here is a list of websites where you can find icons and favicons:
Once you've found an image you like, right-click on it and choose "Save file as..." to save the image on your computer. You can then use it as a favicon using the form described above.
