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:

1. Click Settings > Properties. 

2. Click the Edit Favicon button.

3. The File Manager will open up, allowing you to either click Upload Files to add a new favicon image to your File Manager or browse for an existing favicon image. Select the image file you'd like to use and click Select.

The favicon 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.
