Add a Favicon to Your Site

A Favicon is the small logo found on website address tabs and bookmarks in your web browser to make them more memorable.  You can customise this and make your link stand out in a list of bookmarks.
 

Examples of some favicon's

If your site is upgraded to one of our paid Weebly Editor plans (Starter, Pro or Business), you can do this very easily.  You'll find the option to upload a favicon for your site under the General section of Settings.

Settings Page in Weebly Editor

Click upload to search your computer for a favicon image you'd like to use, keeping in mind the following:
  • The image must be square. A rectangular image of any kind will fail on upload.  
  • The image must be saved as a .jpg, .png, or .ico file. 
  • 64 pixels by 64 pixels is the ideal size for the image, though it's also okay to have one that's larger or smaller (no smaller than 16x16 and no larger than 100x100 are good rules of thumb and will ensure your favicon looks great). 
If the upload is a success, you'll see the favicon on your Settings page.

You'll need to publish to make the favicon live on your site, though there's a good chance that it won't show up in your own browser right away upon publish. This is because favicons are cached very strongly by browsers, and publishing your site doesn't update that cache immediately.

Still not sure, try loading your site in a different web browser or on a different computer or device.
