Hi Gareth

Yes! See the screenshot below. . .

To add your own favicon to your site
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.

To see what your favicon will look like, save and preview your page.

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 who do show the favicons in all three areas!

Please let us know if you have any trouble adding your favicon.

All standard formats, .gif, .jpeg, .png, should work. Are you having any trouble uploading your favicon?

Hi Gareth

Remember that if you are using Internet Explorer, the Favicon will only show up if you add the site to your favorites list. This is the way Internet Explorer works, and there is nothing we can do about it.

If you have published and bookmarked your site and the favicon is still not showing up in your favorites list, can you email me a copy of the image you are trying to upload and I will try to get it working from my side?

Send it to support@synthasite.com.

We would like to help you with this, but we are going to need a little more information. I apologise for the inconvenience.

Best wishes
Monique

Hi Gareth

SynthaSite does support favicons. Just click on the properties tab and select the file that you want to use.

Hope that helps!
