Add a favicon

adding a favicon
"What's the best way to add a favicon to my online store website?"

Adding a favicon (that little icon that is displayed in a web browser next to the page's title and in its bookmark) can be completed simply by following these steps:
  1. Add your favicon file to your template package's directory.
    Template packages are located within the directory named "template_packages" in your store. Locate the directory of the specific package your store is using, and upload your favicon file into it.

    If you need help creating a favicon file, there are several favicon creator websites available, including some that will create a favicon from an image that you create. An example of one such site is:
  3. Create a link to the favicon in your templates
    After the favicon file has been uploaded, edit your store's templates to add the HTML code to link to the favicon file. This link should be placed within the <head>...</head> location in the HTML code, and it should look something like this:
    linking to a favicon
    The HTML code to link to a favicon will look something like this:

    <link rel="icon" type="image/ico" href="favicon.ico"/>

That's all there is to it! After completing the steps above, all web browsers should be able to find your favicon file and start showing it in the various locations that they display favicons.
