favicon is very important now it’s a nice way to put your logo, or what ever you want. on the browser address bar.

  • 18,000+ Animated Favicons Source Added

That’s great and new source for free and animated icons, you won’t need to design your own icon and loos any time any more, thanks for iconj.com Go there and browse.

Step 2: (OR ) Make your own favicon.

now you have to make your icon 16×16 pixels. I usually use photoshop to do it and save it as any image format. like [ jpg, gif, png, …..].
call it favicon.jpg , favicon.gif or favicon.png. just choose one format, not all of 3 types.
and we’ll use program called “imagicon” you can search Google to download.its free and only 950 KB.
setup the program and find the icon image that you made it and saved it by photoshop, favicon.xxx
load the image and choose 16×16 win32 icon. save it as .ico.
so it’ll be favicon.ico.
Recommended : it’s recommended to name your icon file – favicon.ico –

Step 3: Upload it.

Use you favorite image upload or file service to upload you favicon.ico file.
and keep the url at save place cause we going to use it in step 4.
the url should be something like.


Step 4: Add a code to your blogger xml layout.

log in to your blogger account. Now find the blog you want to edit if you own more than one blog. And click โ€œlayoutโ€ table. then choose โ€œEdit htmlโ€


Add favicon to blogger

Search for :


<data :blog.pageTitle/>

    (where # is the URL to your image)

  15. Christy says:

    I finally got the code, easy peasy, when I used http://www.iconj.com as my host for my tiny jpeg file. This website will convert for you and you don’t have to download that program. My image hoster wouldn’t allow the .ico file type.
    This website gave me the full code to paste in right where you told us to.

  16. xerexz says:

    can you list the website that can upload image .ico..??

    because i use photobucket and imageshark,there`s some problem that can`t upload image .ico

    forget ico – upload png or jpg – they also work as a favicon.

  30. Ehtesham says:

    It didnt worked for me ๐Ÿ™ plz help me :'(

  31. Zac says:

    ok. The error happen is because you didn’t put / at the end on the code.

    for example:

    Above code will have error.

    see i add / after image/gif’

    This work

  32. Zac says:

    Sweat.. this website delete the website url. It is ok. I try to write in different way.

    images/favicon.ico’ rel=’shortcut icon’>

    Above code will have error.

    images/favicon.ico’ rel=’shortcut icon’/>

    above code is corrected, no more error.

  33. Zac says:

    I read the previous comment here, he said he can have animated favicon on his website and his website is http://nokiafever.blogspot.com/. But I cannot see the animated favicon there, firstly I guess it is my mozila version issue, but since my mozila can show the animated favicon on http://www.2aek.com, so I know it is bot mozila issue, is that blogspot not allow to display gif image? Anyway to solve it? Thanks.

  34. Zac says:


    anyone can tell me that how can he make so many links (each link can go to his other post) and how to make his top menu? is it the top menu is made by Adobe Flash?

    when I hover the link, it shows “search post by date=8/june/2009 time=03pm”, meaning he just post a new topic, then href the link to the new topic with searching date and time of the post. Anyone can tell me how to make the blogspot page display only 1 post? Because my blogspot display all the posts together on 1 page. How to make the page display only 1 post?

  35. Max says:

    hi, all, hi ZAc
    thanks all for your comments, and special thanking to zac, btw zac, i was sooo busy view weeks ago, and i usually don’t remove any links, ( but i remove spam ) and i didn’t remove the links that you provided as example, it’s the site spam comments fitter,
    i just saw your comments today and i added it here with the links,

    and about the menu, and the hacks that you mentioned. It’s all easy and we’ll add it all and more in our blogger tricks section soon, i’m sorry for any misunderstanding,

    And finally, about this hack, favicon, I’ll fix it all today at late night, and i’ll try to add how to make animated favicon too.
    thanks for all.

  38. beben says:

    huheheheheheh…good good…but i have do it before…thank’s for ur share by email

  39. Zac says:

    I guess blogspot doesn’t block the gif file. It just need about 2 hours to display my animated favicon. Wow, my blogspot has animated favicon now. Cool.

    I know how to make horizontal top menu already, and each menu link to different blog that i created. so I have to create 5 different blogs – 1)2aek_homepage.blogspot.com 2)2aek_product.blogspot.com 3)2aek_contact_us.blogspot.com 4)….

    I saw the nokiafever blogspot, he don’t need to create so many blogs, he just create 1 blog and upload many posts onto the blog. All his post can be separated by page, 1 page 1 post. and his top menu can link to each post. How he do that?

    My blog shows all the posts in 1 page. How to separate the posts into different page?

    • Max says:

      hi zac
      you can control the posts number that appear in each page at your blogger account dashboard.
      or you can do it in another way that’s a little bit complicated. you give each post a unique label and then link to this label at your navigation bar, i’ll absolutely add a tutorial about it soon.
      i hope that can help you.

  40. Zac says:

    Hei, Max. I use the control number of post method that you teach me. Wow, I did it. It works. Cool man. Thank you so much.

  41. nice post. I applied your tip and you can see it here. Windows Technology Blog

      hi jaydeep,
      pelase note that the favicon may take a long time to appear in some browsers,
      so please wait till it’ll work correctly for you, it’s history and cookies issues.
