Easiest Way Of Adding A Favicon To Your WordPress Site

Yesterday, my friend who just started blogging contacted me to help him add a favicon to his blog WEOOL Technology. I guided him through the steps but realized if this is proving to be difficult for a new blogger then i should write a post for accomplishing this more easily. So without wasting anytime let’s get to it.

What Is A Favicon ?
Favicon is that small size image which you see in browsers next to the title of the webpage. Like the ‘T’ sign on this page above – Take A Look.
A favicon could be your Companies Logo or anything which describes your site. This gives your website a more professional look and makes it unique among others. So, in this tutorial i’m going to show how you can add a favicon to your website very easily.

Benefits Of A Favicon :

There are many benefits which you can gain by simply adding a favicon.

  • A more professional look.
  • Easy Identification.
  • Increased User Experience.
Creating A Favicon :
Before you can add a favicon to your site, first you need to create it. There are many tools which you can use ranging from Photoshop to simple image editors. Any image which is in 16 x 16 or 32 x 32 size and is in PNG or ICO format will work.
*Note that some older browsers don’t recognize PNG format for favicon.
 
How To Add Favicon To WordPress :
There are multiple ways to accomplish this but we are going to discuss the easiest one’s here.

First Method :-
  • Upload the file to the root directory of your website using FTP or file manager, if your web-host supports it.
  • Now edit your HEADER.PHP file and add the following code :


<link rel=”icon” href=”http://www.techno-nerdz.tk/favicon.ico” type=”image/x-icon” />

<link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”http://www.techno-nerdz.tk/favicon.ico” type=”image/x-icon” />

  • In the above code just change www.technonerdz.org with your website’s url and paste it in your HEADER.PHP.

If this method seems too much technical for you, keep reading :-

Second Method :-
  • Login to your wordpress admin area.
  • Goto the plugins tab and search for a plugin named All In One Favicon.
  • Install the plugin and let it do the dirty work.

Somehow your Facebook has been blocked and you can’t log-in. Facebook has implemented various security features to ensure everyone is using their original identity. But sometimes these measures could become potential problem for the end users.
unblock-facebook

 

Sometime time ago, my friend’s account was blocked and he had requested me to unlock it. His facebook account was showing the error as “Please Verify Your Identity”. I had no idea how to unlock it as i’ve never encountered the problem before but after some tinkering i found these two ways by which you can verify your facebook profile for identity.

I followed these steps to unlock it – Facebook has provided a nice and easy way of recognizing profile pictures of your friend’s to verify your identity. It’s a 3 step process and if you don’t recognize any of your friends you can skip that step and a new set of photos will be presented, this can be done only 2 times.

But what if you can’t identify your friend’s DP’s (Display Pictures) at all, there’s an alternate method.

Search For Secrets Using Google

google-knows-everything

 

Google, a search engine which serves about 80% of total search engine industry traffic could be used to find secrets on the web which is difficult to find otherwise. These secrets could be anything from Personal Information to Confidential Data which because of someone’s stupidness (Read – Lack of Security Measures Implementation) is indexed by Google.

Don’t Miss : Funny Google

It is very much possible to search for these information easily because of the vast querying capabilities provided by Google.

 

google-query-operators

 

Using single line commands one can search for personal details like email, passwords, admin accounts, webservers etc.
For just the sake of experiment, i queried Google for emails and found a shocking ‘Half A Million‘ addresses in plain text and that too without much effort – Scary huh..!!

To search for personal data following queries can be used :-

 

search-secret-data

 

Recently, i read a book ‘Dangerous Google :: Searching For Secrets‘ by Michal Piotrowski which completely changed my view of Google forever.
The author wrote a very sticky line which engaged me into reading the book :-

Information which should be protected is very often publicly available, revealed by careless or ignorant users. The result is that lots of confidential data is freely available on the Internet – just Google for it.

The above commands (queries) are from this book only, to know more give the book a quick read-through.
I don’t know the author but the information provided makes me share it (hope it’s OK with the author).

Hide Your Data Into An Image Using Python

The Python Way :-
It is possible to hide some data into an image as demonstrated in my previous post. In this post we are going to accomplish just that but by using Python. Now you must be thinking if we can do it using command prompt in Windows then why should we bother with python, so the answer to that question is Because We Can..!!
hidden-data-behind-image


Behind The Scene :-
Before i tell you how to hide the data into an image, let’s discuss what is really happening in the background :-
The process opens each file at it’s binary state and merges them into one. To view the image you can open it simply and if you want to view the hidden data open it with any archiver software like 7zip as the files must be first archived before merging into the image.

Don’t Miss :- Password Protect Any Folder In Windows (No Software)

Requirement :-

  • Python Compiler
  • Text Editor

The Process :-
Type the following lines in a text file and save it with .py extension :

  • image = open(“image.jpg”, “ab”)
  • archive = open(“file.zip”,”rb”)
  • image.write(“n”+archive.read())
  • image.close()
  • archive.close()

Here image.jpg is the image behind which the data will be hidden and file.zip is the file which contains the data to be hidden.
So, with just 5 lines of code we can easily hide our data from the eyes of an unsuspecting user. Note that it doesn’t encrypt the data in any way, a user with some know-how could still find the information that is hidden.

If you feel the need to split the files again you can create and run this python script same as above :

  • import os
  • imgsize = os.stat(“image.jpg”).st_size
  • image = open(“image.jpg”, “ab”)
  • archsize = os.stat(“file.zip”).st_size
  • archive = open(“file.zip”,”rb”)
  • image.write(“n”+archive.read())
  • image.close()
  • archive.close()
  • narchive = open(“file2.zip”, “wb”)
  • old = open(“image.jpg”, “rb”)
  • oldr = old.read()
  • data = oldr[-archsize:]
  • narchive.write(data)
  • narchive.close()
  • old.close()

Just run this script and your file will be splitted in no time.

Have an interesting point to add, do let us know in the comments section below.

Enjoy..!!
