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.

      Hey    globallegacyfdn

      Simply change the title of your website. Please enter your editor, and proceed to "Settings" > "SEO (Google)", from here change the Site title.

      Please note that the title on the tab will be changed until the " | Wix.com " text if you are a free user.
      If you have a premium package that includes removing the Wix ads, the Wix.com text will also be removed.

      For more information click here.

      Please also note that changes will take about one month to appear in Google.

      thank you for the response....but... I did all that.

      Do you mean the tab will change in a month?

      Hey,

       

      No. the title in your tab will change once you change it through the SEO settings:

      Please enter your editor, and proceed to   Settings on the left side >   SEO (Google), from here change the Site title.

       

      If you've done that, but can't see the changes, please clear your browser's cache.

      Please don't hesitate to contact us again. Nat

    Hi Wix Team,

    I added a Favicon in both .PNG and .JPG format and it works OK when the site is loading, however when the browser stops loading the favicon disappears!

     

    Browser is Firefox.

    Any idea on this one please?

    Many Thanks

    Rob.

      Hello Rob,

       

      I have visited your site using Firefox and couldn't reproduce your issue - as you can see in the attached screen shot, the correct favicon showed without disappearing:

       

       

      Please update your Firefox to its latest version and afterwards clear its cache to resolve this issue.  You can find step by step instructions here .

       

      Let us know if you need any additional help!

    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...

      Hi,

      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

      Hi, 

      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? 

      Thanks,

      Mel

      Hi,

      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.

      Hi,

    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.
