I still don’t truly know how to pronounce the word (I currently say fave-icon) but I do know that they’re cool. I’m talking about the little icon that appears next to the website name/title tag in a browser tab.
They’re teeny tiny graphics that you can upload to your website files to set yourself apart from every other website. And they’re cool.
Rather than give you my own step by step instructions, here are a few resources that should help!
- Creating a Favicon on a Self-Hosted WordPress Site (via The Athlete’s Plate) *uses a plugin
- Favicon.cc (allows you to create the correct size and format for a favicon)
- How to Create a Favicon (via Matt Mullenweg — aka, one of the daddies of WordPress)
