Add a Favicon to Google Sites
Well, that was easy! I just tried out the new feature to add a favicon to Google Sites. The favicon is the little icon on the tab when you’re visiting a website.
Until recently the favicon was the Google Sites logo. You can now easily customize the favicon to whatever you want. I will admit I do NOT miss the old process for adding a favicon to a website page. (If you don’t know what it is, you don’t want to know.) This was so easy. Literally, browse your computer for a picture.
No Save Button
This is a little unsettling…. after you add the image there is no save or “ok” button. You have to click the X in the upper right of the pop up. It feels like it didn’t work, but it did. And then… nothing happens. The favicon for the edit screen remains the Google Sites Logo.
Tiny Triangle Next to Publish Button
You will need to click on the tiny triangle next to the Publish button to “View published site.” The published site will show your favicon. Check out mine at alicekeeler.com/events.
