WordPress Tutorial: How to Add a Site Icon

September 16, 2019 0 By Bernardo Ryan


Hi and welcome to WordPress.com. This video will show you how to add
a site icon to your website or blog. A site icon is a unique image
for your site. It’s shown across WordPress.com,
in your visitor’s browser tab, and in widgets like Blogs I Follow. You can upload a custom site icon
by going to My Site, and Settings. It’ll be under the General tab. Then, click on the Change button. Your media library will open,
and you can either select an existing image, or upload a new one. Remember the recommended minimum size
is 512 pixels wide and tall. Once you’ve selected an image,
click Continue. Next, because a site icon should
be a square, you’ll be prompted to optionally crop the image
to your liking. Use the corner handles to resize
the bounding box, or reposition the box by dragging it. When you’re finished, click Done. You’ll know that the icon is ready
when you see a notice confirming that your settings
have been successfully saved. It may take a few hours
before you see your new site icon. And that’s it! For more tips and tricks,
