How do I change the Favicon of my Joomla Website?
The Favicon (or site icon) is the small logo or image that is displayed in the address bar and tab of most web browsers. It’s a good way to help visitors to your website recognize and remember you. If you’re running a Joomla website, you might want to change the Favicon. Here’s how to do it.
How to Change Your Joomla Favicon
The easiest way to change your Favicon with Joomla is to use the Favicon Manager plugin. This is a free add-on that allows you to upload or select the image of your choice.
- Step 1: Download and install the Favicon Manager plugin. It can be found in the Joomla Extensions directory.
- Step 2: Once you have the plugin installed, navigate to “Extensions” in the Joomla control panel and find the “Plugin Manager.” Here, you can search for “Favicon Manager” and enable it.
- Step 3: Now, you will be able to access the plugin in the “Components” menu of your Joomla control panel. Click on “Favicon Manager” and upload or select the image you want as your site icon.
- Step 4: Finally, click “Save” and you’re done! Your new Favicon will appear when visitors enter your website.
That’s all there is to it! If you’re having any trouble with the Favicon Manager plugin, there are also a few other options available. There are several third-party Joomla plugins designed specifically for managing site icons as well as external services like Favicon.io. Both can help you to quickly change or customize the Favicon of your Joomla website.
