A small icon that serves as branding for your website.
The favicon on Ohio State's website displayed in a browser tab.

Measuring a mere 16x16 pixels, it’s tiny. But it can play a big part in unifying our websites. It is also a convenient way for visitors to locate your page when they have multiple tabs open, or have bookmarked the page.

The Ohio State favicon is available within the BUX assets package that can be downloaded from the Installation page.

Implementation Notes#

Favicons are implemented via a link in the <head> of your site's html.

<link rel="icon" href="link/to/favicon.ico" />

However, many content management systems and development frameworks will already have a favicon set up that you can just replace with our favicon file.
