Woohoo. Just figured out how to add a favicon to my blog.
A favicon is a small image that appears in the browsers address bar. This is how to add one to your wordpress blog.
Make it in Photoshop – must be 16 pixels by 16 pixels.
Save it in format gif or png with file extension .ico
Upload it into the folder of the theme you are using. Will have to use FTP for this.
Copy the following code into the “header” section of your site. That is, use the wordpress editor to edit the “header.php” file. Check for the head section, and paste it in there!
<link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”<?php bloginfo(‘template_directory’); ?>/favicon.ico” />
PS – you dont have to call it “favicon”.
