    Hi,

    i’m trying to use a small png with transparency as a favicon on my blog. After uploading it in the blog settings the 3 preview images show up with a black background and so does the final favicon on the blog.

    Any idea what’s wrong with my png?

    The source image is here:

    http://subcommander.tigris.org/images/Subcommander.png

    and it properly shows the transparency when used from here:

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

    That’s correct. Do not use transparent backgrounds on Blavatars. It will always do this.

    Actually, that’s not true, rain. I use a transparent png for my blavatar.

    @hauner – if you have a blog at wordpress.COM please provide a link. The only site that you referenced is not hosted here.

    Hi,

    hmm, I didn’t add the blog address because there was a drop down menu with my blogs address on the support form. So I thought it would be included automatically.

    The url is:

    http://subcommanderblog.wordpress.com

    I wonder if that is theme-dependent. What I said is what the Support files say and also the other threads in the forum I was able to find. Same with avatars.
