Adding a favicon to your Webflow website is a simple yet effective way to enhance its branding and make it stand out. A favicon, short for “favorite icon,” is a small image that appears in the browser tab when visitors browse your website. In this tutorial, we will explore how to add a favicon to your Webflow site using HTML.
Step 1: Choose or Create Your Favicon
Before we dive into the technical steps, you need to choose or create your favicon. A favicon typically measures 16×16 pixels or 32×32 pixels and should be saved as a .ico file format. You can use various graphic design tools like Adobe Photoshop, Figma, or online favicon generators to create one.
Step 2: Upload the Favicon File
Once you have your favicon ready, it’s time to upload it to your Webflow project. Follow these steps:
1. Log in to your Webflow account and open your project. 2. Click on the “Project Settings” button in the left sidebar. 3.
In the “General” tab, scroll down until you find the “Favicon” section. 4. Click on the “Choose Image” button and upload your favicon file. 5. Webflow will automatically generate different sizes of favicons for different devices.
If you prefer a bit more control over the code, you can manually add the favicon using custom code.
1. Go to Project Settings > Custom Code.
Scroll down to the “Head Code” section. Add the following HTML code snippet:
Replace `”path/to/favicon.ico”` with the correct path where you have uploaded your favicon file.
Step 3: Publish and Test
Once you have uploaded the favicon, it’s time to publish your Webflow site. Click on the “Publish” button in the top-right corner of the Webflow Designer.
After publishing, open your website in a web browser and check if the favicon is displayed correctly in the browser tab.
Adding a favicon to your Webflow site is a simple process that can greatly enhance your website’s branding and user experience. Remember to choose or create a favicon that represents your brand effectively.
You can either upload it through Webflow’s Project Settings or manually add it using custom code. Don’t forget to publish your site and test it in different browsers to ensure everything is working as intended.
