Setup your website icon

Posted: 01/01/2011 10:58:20st January, 2011 at 10:58 AM


If you want to set/display a custom icon for your website, this will appear in the URL bar or as the shortcut icon, you will need to create a favicon.ico and upload it to your website.

There are several guides as to the dimensions of favicon but the most favoured seems to be 16x16px.

There is much debate over what file formats are supported, the more modern browsers support png and gif, but the icon may not be recognised by many other browsers. All browsers recognise the icon format and Dreamgenie has built in support for this.

Create and upload your website icon

The icon will need to be called favicon.ico and can be created using any tool that supports the icon (.ico) format. A free online tool is available at http://www.tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/

Once created login to your website, in the back-office click the [file management] icon, navigate to your [uploads] directory, click the [select] button and choose your favicon.ico file.

Press the [UPLOAD ALL FILES] button. Thats it. You may need to close your browser or log/off on for the icon to be picked up by your website.
