Change Thumbnail Icon

  1. Hi! Is there anyone who can tell me how to change the icon that appears next to the URL at the top of my browser next to the search bar? (like the W icon that shows up next to WordPress.com) I am using Google Chrome which shows only the default page icon and the WordPress logo. Is there a way I can upload a custom picture for the thumbnail or will I need to pay/get a plugin/upgrade membership to do that? Thank you so much!

    The blog I need help with is thatsabrainful.wordpress.com.

  2. Hello there,
    That's a favcion and favicon = blavatar
    See: http://en.support.wordpress.com/avatars/blavatars/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/avatars/gravatars/
    For best practices for uploading gravatars, avatars and blavatars scroll down to below the video here: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/01/24/gravatar-avatar-blavatar/

    Gravatars/blavatars do not show up instantly after uploading them. Gravatar images are cached and frequently take several days to display after a change. Do not keep uploading!

    To enable Gravatar display and hovercard display on your blog go to > Settings > Discussion and scroll way done the page to "Avatars".
