How do I add a favicon in WordPress?



The small symbol with a big effect

A favicon is the small but important icon that appears in the browser tab next to the page title. It gives your WordPress website a professional appearance and improves recognizability. In this blog post, we show you how easy it is to create a Favicon to your WordPress website.

1. select the right image

First of all, you need a Image for your Favicon. Ideally, it should be square and at least 512 x 512 pixels be large to ensure good quality. You can use a Logo or a simplified Icon that your Brand represents.

2. customize the favicon image

Sometimes the image needs to be converted to the correct format. You can use online tools or graphic editing software such as Photoshop or GIMP to make sure that your image looks best in the .ico-format, which is supported by most browsers, but .png format is also possible.

3. upload the favicon

  • Go to your "WordPress dashboard"
  • Click on "Design" > "Customizer" > "Website information" > "Select website icon" > "Select image" > "Publish"
  • Depending on the theme you will find the option for the favicon in different sections, often under
    Website information (identity) or Site Identity.

    There you will see the possibility to Upload favicon image.
    Select the prepared image and save the changes.

4. clear cache and check

After uploading your favicon, clear your website's cache so that the changes take effect immediately. You can then open your website in a new browser window and check if your favicon is displayed correctly in the tab.


That's it! Adding a favicon may seem like a small task, but it can have a big impact on the perception of your website. A professionally designed favicon gives your website a polished look and boosts your brand's credibility.

With these simple steps, you can easily add a customized favicon and give your WordPress website the finishing touch.

What we guarantee

You will only receive an invoice if we have been able to help!

Our team works hard every day to solve problems quickly for our customers or to achieve optimal results during implementation. As a result, bedemy is now known for its first-class service and has many happy customers. Our past experience and belief in our abilities enables us to offer new customers a unique promise that underlines our commitment to customer satisfaction.

We only issue an invoice if we have really been able to help!

If we are unable to help with a problem or implementation, we will not issue an invoice. Even if we have already invested time. You have no risk, because even in the event that we have implemented everything as requested, our costs are transparent, agreed in advance and never exceed the planned budget!

What our help costs

No nasty surprises

We charge according to a fixed hourly rate, which we will inform you of in a written offer before we charge you for the use of our team. This means that implementing a small feature or fixing a problem is usually quick (often within a few minutes) and therefore doesn't cost much. The implementation of a complete site, on the other hand, can take a few days (depending on the scope).

But you don't have to worry about the costs.

Firstly, you will always receive a quote from us in advance via email, even for smaller support requests. Secondly, we always stick to this cost estimate unless we tell you otherwise. If, during implementation, we realize that the task assigned to us is more complex and will take longer, we will contact you with a revised cost estimate. You can then decide whether you are prepared to accept this revised offer or not. If it's too much for you, we'll stop the project and you won't pay a penny. Not even for the work we have already invested in the project up to that point (according to the initial estimate).
