Hi Duster,

Can you tell me what browser you are using?

Internet Explorer doesn't allow favicons to be displayed next to your URL or on the tab of the window. The favicon is displayed if the site is bookmarked and in the Favorites folder. Change to Firefox and you will see your favicons in all three areas.

If you are using Firefox and your favicon is still not displaying, please let me know.

Hi Nick

You will see that image when you are editing your site. It is our favicon. But you can add your own favicon that will show when you preview your site, or when you go to your published site.

To add your own favicon to your site (the little image that appears next to your URL if the browser window) this is what you need to do:

1. Click on the properties sidebar.
2. You will see a "Favourites Icon" field (the second last box from the top). Click on the browse button to the right of the box to browse your desktop for an image to upload.
3. To see what your favicon will look like, save and preview your page.
4. You will need to do this for each page of your site.

Please note that Internet Explorer doesn't allow favicons to be displayed next to your URL or on the tab of the window. The favicon will be displayed if the site is bookmarked and in your Favourites folder. The best option would be to change to Firefox which does show the favicons in all three areas.

I hope this helps. If you have trouble with these instructions, please let us know.

How do other sites manage to have their favicons displyed in the browser tab, then? Even when it is in Internet explorer? I can see the Yola favicon in the browser tab and I'm using IE!
