the image you want to be used as your favicon.The final image will be 16×16 pixels.Simply upload your image here and it will then provide you with an example of the image and a link to download it from. I highly recommend NOT using the animated version, unless you want to annoy your visitors.The image will be in a zip file, so extract favicon.ico to somewhere you will remember on your computer.Upload the favicon.ico to your website, either via FTP or through WordPress.Either way remember/copy the URL to the file once it is uploaded. Finally you will need to edit the header of your website to tell the browser where the favicon is located. In WordPress you can do this through Design > Theme Editor and selecting header.php. Some themes will already have a line mentioning favicon.ico so you simply need to edit that line, else before the closing tag insert this line:
The image does not always appear first time, browsers are a little picky about displaying them, but you can always try in a different browser, or delete your browser cache/temporary internet files, closing the browser and restarting. If you have done steps 5 and 6 correctly it WILL work, have faith. You can even ask a friend if they can see it on their computer.@solved_answers
