WordPress. How to add favicon from dashboard (WordPress 4.3+)

This tutorial will show you the way to add a site icon to your Blog based on WordPress 4.3+.

WordPress. How to add your site icon from dashboard (WordPress 4.3+)

Favicon is a tiny image that appears next to your website title in the browser. It helps your users identify your website and more frequent visitors of your site will build an instant recognition for that tiny image.

WordPress did not have a feature to add site icon or site icon. Since WordPress 4.3, you can add a site icon or favicon from WordPress admin area.

  1. Go to Appearance -> Customize:

    WordPress_How_to_add_your _site_icon_from_dashboard_1

  2. Click on the Site Identity tab:

    WordPress_How_to_add_your _site_icon_from_dashboard_2

  3. Scroll down to the Site Icon section.

  4. Click on the Select File button and then upload the image you want to use as site icon:

    WordPress_How_to_add_your _site_icon_from_dashboard_3

    WordPress_How_to_add_your _site_icon_from_dashboard_4

  5. If the image you are uploading exceeds recommended size, then WordPress will allow you to crop it:

    WordPress_How_to_add_your _site_icon_from_dashboard_5

  6. If it matches the recommended size exactly, then you can just save your changes:

    WordPress_How_to_add_your _site_icon_from_dashboard_6

That’s it, now you can preview your site and see your favicon in action.
