Today’s Tech Noodle question is all about favicons. It took me so long to figure out how to change that awkward little icon.
The favicon is the icon that appears next to your website title in a tab, window, or on a bookmark. Favicons are another way to distinguish your website from all of the other bookmarks in someone’s toolbar. It’s a tiny detail that can go a long way.
But, how do you change the favicon?
It’s actually easier than you think. A favicon image is any image that is 16px x 16px with the name favicon.ico. There are some browsers that also allow favicon.gif and favicon.png.
You can use my favicon as a template: hopestarbound.com/favicon.ico
Once you’ve created your own image, save it as favicon.ico
There you go!
You have your own favicon ready for your website. To use it, you can install the All in One Favicon WordPress plugin, or just upload it to your server using an FTP client like FileZilla.If you have a tech question you want answered, please submit it here.
Looking at the footage from the Oklahoma tornadoes has been crazy. It rings extremely close to home. Two years ago, My husband, many of my friends, and I were in the EF-4 tornado that devastated Alabama.
Just yesterday it hit me that Tuscaloosa has come so far. Just yesterday I felt all of the emotion from that series of days without power and without safety.
While prayer is wonderful, let me tell you just a little action goes a long way.
Get in contact with the Salvation Army, United Way, Red Cross, etc and give what you can. The footage for disasters like these only last until the next tornado drops elsewhere in the South. But, the damage for those involved lasts a lifetime. Please don’t forget the people impacted once the news coverage drops in a few days.
Please do what you can to help Moore, Oklahoma and all of the outside cities impacted.
Drawn using my new prismacolor fine line markers. Yay!
Also, Photoshop wasn’t kind to some of my outlines, hence the sketch-y look. Boo!
