Favicon for Joomla Site

Favicons are small images that appear right next to your site's URL in the web browser and in your favourites list. How to apply your Joomla site a decent favicon?


  1. Create your favicon file, you can use online favicon.ico generator for creating one. Make sure the file is named favicon.ico
  2. Copy it to your template's folder (yoursite.com/templates/youractivetemplate)
  3. Refresh page


If the favicon won't appear, make sure that you have a referral to your favicon.ico file in your template's index.php file's head section. Somewhere inbetween your <head> </head> tags should be a code:


<link href="/templates/yourtemplatename/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon" />
