Favicons often go unnoticed by webmasters, but I like to think theyâ€™re an important part of any website, because they can be the symbol of your website and can leave a message to your audience about what they can expect from your business or blog. Favicons are just the small icons that appear in your browserâ€™s address bar, just to the left of the web address itself.
The default favicon for any Joomla-built website is the Joomla logo, which can be really annoying to webmasters who want their business or website to reflect their own style and preferences. For example, if you already have a business logo, youâ€™d rather see that as your favicon instead of the Joomla logo, right? Itâ€™s just more professional and gives your website an overall feel and design.
So letâ€™s change the default favicon in Joomla to your own personal favicon!
1. Build Your Favicon
Visit a Favicon Generator website, such as Dynamic Driveâ€™s Favicon Generator. Browse your computer for the proper image file and then click â€œcreate iconâ€. If you like the way it looks, download your favicon. It will auto-save it as â€œfavicon.icoâ€, which is good.
2. Delete and/or Replace
In your /images folder, you can find the default Joomla favicon, which is called â€œfavicon.icoâ€ as well. You may either delete the old file completely or simply FTP your new favicon into the /images folder and replace the existing favicon.
3. Clear Cache and Voila!
Clear your browserâ€™s cache and refresh your website. You should see your new favicon displayed immediately.
