Create a Favicon

FAQ Tips & Tricks

The Favicon is the small icon that shows in the browser tab that is showing the web page title - like this page:


Adding a Favicon helps your online shop look professional and creates brand awareness.

From a customer's point of view it makes the browser tab with your shop stand out against any others open and also makes your shop more visible in the customer’s list of bookmarked sites.

  • Create an image e.g. from your logo - a square image of about 300 x 300 pixels.
  • Internet search for a free favicon generator that will convert the image - we have used which works well.
  • Upload the icons to the root (i.e. the folder/directory that contains all the shop files) of your shop on the host server - done.

Any code needs to be in <head> section of /templates/default/includes/components/template_top.php
