Favicon: how to change

What is a favicon? A favicon is a small icon (16x16 px) in a browser address bar (near the url of your website). All uCoz websites have the following default favicon:



How to replace the default icon by a custom one?

http://faq.ucoz.com/faq/29-1#220


If this explanation is not enough then follow the steps below:

  • Download or create (by means of special programs) an icon - .ico file 16x16 px.

  • Name it favicon.ico.

  • Upload this icon to File Manager or via FTP to the root folder of your website (the first folder where you see the original favicon.ico). You don't need to delete the original icon, just upload a new one and the old one will be replaced automatically.

  • If you have done everything correctly, then you will be able to view a new icon at _http://your_site.ucoz.com/favicon.ico. Go to your website and refresh the page. If the icon hasn't changed, clear browser's cache or simply wait for some time.


IE may not display the icon. To solve this problem try to paste the following code between < head> and < /head>:

Code
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">                   
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

You mean the Favicon? Go to your File Manager and upload a file with a name of "Favicon" in .ico file. The whole name should be "favicon.ico". Or you can just add this on the Head of your html template.

Code
<link rel="icon" href="LINK_OF_FAVICON" type="image/x-icon" />


Edit the code to your liking. The dimensions of favicon should only be 16x16.

Hope this helps! If you didn't get my point, search it up on Google for more detailed tutorial. biggrin

16x16 px


That's the dimensions a favicon must have. And your current favicon is 256x256 px.

Hi there uCoz community,
I have done the steps to change the favicon.ico but it has not been replaced yet. I saved it favicon.ico but when I upload it, it shows favicon.ico.ico. I tried changing it to favicon.ico but says name already exists. As the steps suggested i went to link mysite.ucoz.org/favicon.icon and it shows the default icon. However, I can view the icon when I go to msc-ccsf.ucoz.org/favico.ico.ico. BTW that is my site that I just opened. Can you guys help me out?

thank you cool

pawnmn, rename the icon on your PC to favicon.ico (if you use Windows, name it 'favicon' and select the 'icon' file type when saving it - the '.ico' extension will be added automatically). Then upload it to File Manager and it will replace the current one. By the way, your favicon image it too big, it must be 16x16 px.

I tried it but it seems to be appearing only in the main page?
The site: http://dimensionz.ucoz.com/
Is it that I have to wait for sometime or do something else?

Mugen_Boy, I can't even find the favicon code on any of your other pages. Have you put the code on all the other pages? Maybe an idea would to put it in the header so that it is global. smile

Hmm look, this is what I had done before:


Did I do something wrong? Or is there something else to do too?
Thanks~
