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.

    I have tried adding both .jpg and .png favicons and at sizes of 16 pixels and larger, but each time I click back to the setting menu, the favicon is not displayed  It does not publish to my site either.  I have not had this problem with my wix hosted blog.  Please advise...

      I checked your  Wix account and I saw you have upgraded your site to the ' Connect domain ' premium package.

      Please note: This premium package doesn't include changing the  favicon.

      You can review all the upgrade plans as what premium packages allow uploading a  favicon. Please click  here

      I uploaded the favicon as you asked (here it looks clear but in my settings it looks blurry). Also, will I only be able to see it when the site is published?

      I've uploaded the image for you, Please disregard the pixelation as the way you will see it is how you uploaded it right here.

      And regarding your second question, yes, you will only be able to see it once you publish your site.


      Best regards.

    I have uploaded a pic to favicon but after I choose the image it becomes pixelated. I tried to reduce & even increase the size of the image but I still get the same result.

      Have you removed the favicon from your site?

      I checked your site however I couldn't find any uploaded favicon.

      Thank you,

    Hey i89607

    This issue occurs because your domain is not connected via the Wix nameservers nor is it pointing to Wix IP, as you can see here. You can also see that if you visit your free Wix url, the favicon is showing properly : i89607.wix.com/semtigchelaar

    To fix this and properly connect your domain to Wix, please follow the instructions here.

    After following these steps, please allow up to 72 hours for changes to get updated (propagate). If you are still having domain connection problems, try going through the troubleshooter here.

    your website "www.tandem-design.co.il/" is embedded on a third party server (which causes the problem you've  reported on)
