Customize favicon for your Blogger's blog

For many bloggers, having a custom favicon (the tiny image displayed in your browser’s window or tab) is the finishing touch that ties together the design and identity of a great looking blog. Today, Blogger's team announced that Blogger in Draft users can now add a customized favicon to their blog. Many bloggers have waiting this customize for long time.

You can add a custom favicon from the Design | Page Elements tab (or, from the Layout tab if you're using the new user interface), by clicking Edit on the new “Favicon” setting above the navbar element:


A new window will then open where you can select an image from your hard drive to replace the default favicon image. This initial launch only supports .ico files, but you can easily convert your JPEG, PNG, or other non-ico image file using your own image software. There are also many conversion tools online, and a quick Google Search brings up a handful of options such as http://www.icoconverter.com/.


Once you’ve selected the .ico file for your favicon, click Save. Blogger will automatically resize the image to the correct dimensions, and you’ll then see the Page Elements updated with your selected favicon image:


When you save your template changes, you’ll see your newly-added favicon image displayed in your browser window or tab. That’s it!

  4. Good covered point, lots of people simply put something weired theories in front of public.

    But it doesn't work i think because know one sure how it will going to happen

    It looks like just coping ideas which someone has already written. I found even on

    popular blogs guest bloggers bring same theories which I already know. I observed they

    just try to spice up their article without knowing what really audience want to read.

  5. I get up to the last step and it looks like your picture. My icon with the Favicon tab, but it's not showing up on the actual browser window.

    Is there a time delay or should it be instant?
