Customize the Favicon

In Chirpy, the image files of Favicons are placed in assets/img/favicons/. You may need to replace them with your own. So let’s see how to customize these Favicons.

With a square image (PNG, JPG or GIF) in hand, open the site Favicon & App Icon Generator and upload your original image.


Click button Create Favicon and wait a moment for the website to generate the icons of various sizes automatically.


Download the generated package, unzip and delete the following two from the extracted files:

  • browserconfig.xml
  • manifest.json

Now, copy the remaining image files (.PNG and .ICO) from the extracted .zip file to cover the original files in the folder assets/img/favicons/.

The following table helps you understand the changes to the icon file:

✓ means keep, ✗ means delete.

The next time you build the site, the icon will be replaced with a customized edition.
