WordPress Favicon

One of the things I wish was easier in many WordPress themes was adding a favicon. The favicon is the little icon that appears in the address bar of most websites to the left of the URL.

A favicon (short for favorites icon), also known as a shortcut icon, website icon, URL icon, or bookmark icon, is a 16×16 or 32×32 pixel square icon associated with a particular website or webpage.

Does your library website have one that’s custom to you? If not, and you use WordPress, you might like this tutorial from WPMU.org on adding a favicon to your WordPress site.

A favicon can be added to a website by several methods – by adding code to your theme files or by using a plugin. Many times, you must create the favicon off-site and then upload it to your hosting account for it to be used.
