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've uploaded the favicon as you explained, but it didn't affected:

    I still see the favicon of my domain provider, which I've asked and they told that I can change it only via my server provider.


    Can you please help me?

    Hi ad9965,


    The upload component is a flash element.

    The solution to this problem is to update your flash player and you´ll see the upload buttom.

    Let me know if the problem was solved!

    The option to Upload a FavIcon is not available on the appropriate screen. My Package allows it. Can you help why it's missing?

    HI toremathompson,

    I just checked your site and I see that you have successfully added a favicon.

    While working on your Wix site, your computer and browser stores various information. This build up of information can sometimes cause conflict.

    Please clear your browser's cache. You can find step by step instructions here.

    @ chiefr19,


    I've just checked your site and noticed that you have a favicon which isn't Wix as can be seen in the screenshot below, are you still encountering this problem?

    With a premium account I cannot change my favicon. When you search for www.runwaysundays.com the current favicon is the wix logo. When I log on to edit the favicon I get a swirling icon as if its going to load and it never goes away. So I click change and it will allow me to choose my favicon, I then click ok and the screen goes back to the swirling icon. I waited a half hour and it has not changed so I know its not my laptop(brand new by the way). I tried from other PC's and using dffrent browsers and the problem persist. This has been going on for a few weeks now. Can you please help me out with this?
