Favicon Maker: You don’t need any serious technical skills to learn how to make a favicon. In the Favicon Tutorial Video #1, I showed you how easy it is to make a favicon. You can make a favicon, literally from any picture or image. You don’t need any fancy favicon maker. You just need to resize, then make sure to rename it.
In the first video, I showed you how to accomplish putting that favicon on your website by using a plugin. Some themes have a place in the theme options to simply enter the url of the image after you’ve uploaded the correct size image to your media library.
In this video, I’ll show you how to manually upload your favicon to your website using an FTP client. It’s really easy and is the preferred way. Using multiple plugins will eventually bite you in the *^&%*, if you know what I mean. 😆
That’s because…many times, plugins will conflict with each other and if the creator of the plugin, doesn’t keep the plugin updated, then as WordPress updates, the plugin may become unstable. This will generally cause problems for your website. So, as a general rule…“Less is MORE” The fewer plugins you have for your website…the better.
No Need for a Fancy Favicon Maker
