Are you exploring yourself with WordPress free blog? Then it’s the time to explore you more.
Yes, I am also using self hosted WordPress free blog and was trying to make my free blog site more efficient.
I was trying for a long time to use my favorite image (as Favicon icon) on my free WordPress blog.
Any idea about Favicon icon?? Ok…Favicon is a small image which is shown in the left most side of the URL in our browser address bar.
I have got various links and sites but, I didn’t get any solution for the Self Hosted WordPress free blog.
At last I got the solution and I am going to share it with you.
What you have to do???? Just follow the steps…..
First: Login to your WordPress free blog account.
Second: Then Select Settings->General
Third: in the General Settings page find out the Blog Picture/Icon (Upper right hand side of the page)
Then choose the image file using Choose File button and then click Upload Image.
Fourth: After clicking the Upload Image button, you will get a new window from where you have to crop the image by clicking Crop Image button.
Fifth: You are done Go to Settings->General you will get your image as below
Sixth: Wait and Check it to your browser…. Note: Before checking clear the cache / history/ temporary internet files of your browser otherwise you will found your uploaded image (Favicon) is not appearing in the address bar. Or, you can use different browser to check your WordPress free blog site with new Favicon icon.
I am trying to make my WordPress free blog more effective. Hope I will let you inform about more useful information.
