April 2, 2009 at 1:59 pm #332166 slowcathMember I’m pretty sure it is not possible to add a favicon to WordPress.com blogs. You can easily add a favicon if you’re hosting your blog yourself and using WordPress.org, however.

April 2, 2009 at 11:59 pm #332170 ellaellaMember A favicon is called a blavatar at wordpress.com and it is possible to have one. http://support.wordpress.com/avatars/blavatars/ April 2, 2009 at 11:59 pm #332171 slippi1Member um… i dunno how to do this but if you put your blog domain example: brayden550.wordpress.com/favicon.ico it shows an icon!! but i dont know how to change it :( April 3, 2009 at 12:00 am #332172 raincoasterMember Follow the instructions on the link ella just gave you. April 3, 2009 at 12:00 am #332173 slippi1Member Sorry , follow ellaella, use http://support.wordpress.com/avatars/blavatars/ April 3, 2009 at 12:01 am #332174 slippi1Member wow , this post is popular :D April 3, 2009 at 12:01 am #332175 tellyworthStaff This explains how to do it. There’s even a video: http://support.wordpress.com/avatars/blavatars/ “A Blavatar is an image associated with a blog. It will be displayed as the favicon for your blog, which shows up in a browser’s address bar and on browser tabs.” April 3, 2009 at 3:35 am #332176 vikasjnuMember I guess this topic is resolved! Kristiehewlett has not confirmed it though, alas! Adding a favicon is so easy! It appears after some time though so some patience is needed (and in most cases you need to clear your cache). :) April 3, 2009 at 3:36 am #332177 vikasjnuMember Whoblogger 555, as I said in the previous reply, it takes some time; clear your cache and wait for some ten minutes. April 3, 2009 at 3:19 pm #332178 slowcathMember Oh I was totally mistaken then; it is indeed possible to have a favicon on WordPress.com, so my apologies for previously stating otherwise. Good news! I’ll try this out now. Thanks. Author Posts The topic ‘Adding a Favicon?’ is closed to new replies.
