How to I set the default image for my BLOG thumbnail (NOT a post thumbnail)

    I want to set the graphic for BLOG (not post) thumbnails for my blogs.

    For my blog at, my browser bookmarks and tabs, the WordPress ribbon at the top of my post pages, even Facebook posts all show the same thumbnail graphic. It’s the only one in my media library for that blog.

    My other blog,, shows only the WordPress “W” logo in all those same thumbnail locations.

    How do I tell WordPress which graphic to use for BLOG (not post) thumbnails?

    Blog url:

    The blog I need help with is



    Log into the Dashboard, Settings / General, on the RHS, Blog Picture/Icon.

    Upload a picture (jpeg or png) to be used as your blog image across We will let you crop it after you upload.

    I think that’s what your after.


    edgetas, Perfect! I knew it had to be somewhere, because I apparently did it once upon a long time ago! :)
