Favicons are the small images displayed in a browser on the tab (as pictured below), shortcuts, and bookmarks. School Loop is working to create an easy way for webmaster to upload a favicon. For now, here's how you can do this on your own.
Create a Favicon
If you have one already, great. If not, there are many sites that will help you create a favicon from an existing image or from scratch. The most common image format for favicons is ICO, but JPG and GIF will work just as well. Favicons are 16 pixels square.
Place your favicon in any of your website locker folders. You may do this via the "My Locker" icon at the top of any page in your portal. Once uploaded, search your locker for the file you just uploaded. On the search results page, right click on the link for your favicon and choose the option to copy the link (wording varies by browser).
Add Favicon Code
Use the code sample below that matches the format of your favicon. Replace "URL_TO_XXX" with the link to your favicon.
<link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="URL_TO_ICO" />
<link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="URL_TO_GIF />
<link rel="icon" type="image/jpeg" href="URL_TO_JPG" />
Copy and paste this code into the Inserts field for your site. Be sure to use the field that inserts the code just below the opening <HEAD> tag. Learn how to use Inserts.
