A favicon is a small icon which appears next to your site address in the browser. This is a great feature which helps your visitors identify your brand.

 

Note: Adding a favicon is a premium feature.

 

To change the favicon: From the left side of the Editor, click Settings > click Favicon > click Change.

Select an existing image or click Upload Images > click Choose Favicon > click Done.

 

Note: A favicon can be uploaded in the following formats: .jpg and .png ( .jpg is the recommended file format for a favicon). For best results, please make sure the dimensions are 16px*16px.


Note: Once a favicon has been added, it is not possible to delete it.

      If you are referring to the thumbnail which appears next to your site address in the browser, this is referred to as a "Favicon".

      Hi,

      Please use any image editor to crop your image to a square, re-size it to 16x16, then save it as a JPEG file, before uploading it to Wix.

      Should you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!

    Hi,

     

    Problem with favicon, it says 0x0 image size when I changed the logo to fit 16x16, can someone give me some details on what this needs to be? I found 1mb but that doesn't work. What size does the picture need to be to actually appear? I have changed the pixels to 64x64, 16x16, 24x24 and nothing works. If I upload my logo which is much larger, then it is a blur imagine. I am assuming 16x16 are the pixels in the logo. Can someone please guide me on how to get the imagine to appear correctly?

     

    Thank you,

    Michelle

      The dimensions should be 16 X 16.

       

      Should you encounter issues, kindly attach a screenshot of the error message that pops up. For instructions on how to take a screenshot, please use this link.

       

      To upload the screenshot, simply click on the "Upload" button and follow the steps.

      when I upload a picture with 16x16 pixels the favicon does not appear. it says the image is 0x0 under my favicon. There is not an error message. I do not know what to do to fix this issue. How to resize the image to make this work? Please help. Is the 16x16 pixels in the image for jpeg? or does this refer to something else?

      Please elaborate - what file type have you attempted to upload?

       

      Currently it is possible to upload the following image types in the Wix Editor:
      jpg, .png, and .gif.

       

      If the Editor issues a message your file size is 0X0, please take its screenshot.

      Thank you in advance.

    I uploaded a favicon that was too large and now, from what I'm reading, I can no longer change it? I have the premium package by the way.

      Hi,

       

      of course , once you upload a Favicon you can change it. 

      However with the premium plan you have, Connect Domain, you cannot upload a Favicon. You will need to upgrade to a higher premium plan. For instructions on how to upgrade to a higher premium plan read here
