Common Questions

1. I changed the favicon, but it is still showing the old favicon.Why?

Just clear your browser cache, and reload your blog once or twice. It should now work.

2. Does it support only icon files?

You can use other images as well. Blogger will automatically resize them and convert them into the icon format. But the image should be less than 100kb.

3. Where can I download Favicons from?

http://www.iconspedia.com/ Just download the .ico version of the icon. You can download the 16x16 version of the icon if available. You will find lots of similar sites if you do a Google Search.

  1. Awesome, it works!
    I created my own. To do so, it has to be square. You can resize with MS Paint.
