I created a favicon for my newly redesigned website.
When I tried to jam my whole name into 16 pixels by 16 pixels, it didn’t look too swell. Just cramming seven letters looked better.
A favicon.ico is a small icon that browsers use to add some flair to the window tabs and bookmark links. It’s the closest I’ll ever come to corporate branding.
I also modified my functions.php file in my WordPress theme to include the code to call the .ico on every page within the blog.
Here are some helpful web pages I found that helped me accomplish these tasks.
“How to create a favicon.ico” from PhotoshopSupport.com
“Child Themes” from the WordPress Codex
