How To Add Favicon On Your Website

by Rubie Tiburcio

Your favorite icon, also known as, Favicon, could be added to your website project.

What is a Favicon? This is the logo or symbol that is shown on your tab and when your web project is bookmarked by your user.

To add a Favicon to your site, you will first need to create a square .svg or .png format of the logo you want to use for your project. We recommend using at least 180px X 180px logo size.

Upload the image to your media gallery. Once the image is in your library, you can easily get the image URL by right-clicking on the image and Copy Image Address.

Follow the format and add these lines of code in your Sitecast project's metatags file:

<link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="180x180" href=",h_180,w_180,b_rgb:fff,bo_20px_solid_white/YOUR_LOGO_FILENAME.png">    
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href=",h_32,w_32/YOUR_LOGO_FILENAME.png">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href=",h_16,w_16/YOUR_LOGO_FILENAME.png">

Replace the YOUR_CLOUDINARY_CLOUD_NAME with the right value as well as the YOUR_LOGO_FILENAME. Be careful with the extension you are using for each icon viewport. Also, you can customize the theme-color by replacing the color and content values.

If you use an .svg for your logo, these tags will allow you to get higher quality icons in some systems.

<link rel="mask-icon" href="" color="#FFFFFF">    
<link rel="icon" type="image/svg+xml" href="">   
<meta name="theme-color" content="#FFFFFF">

With a nice Favicon, your web project will look more professional and your users will be able to recognize your brand when they bookmark your app!
