Add a custom favicon to your website's template
Most Joomla! websites will by default display a favicon.
The favicon is a small 16px x16px image that is displayed next to the URL of your website in the browser address bar.
You will also usually see the favicon displayed next to the name of your site in open browser tabs and bookmark listings.
The favicon is part of the template used by your website.
Favicons can be created using any image file format but ICO is the file format we recommend.
Reason: ICO is supported by all modern browsers.
Why use a favicon?
If you have a brand then displaying a favicon in your website will help to reinforce it.
In this article we tell you how to:
- create a favicon.ico file, and
- how to display it in your website.
