Customers visiting your site from mobile devices — iPhones, iPads, Android devices, etc — can choose to bookmark your site for easy access later. Using the Vimeo OTT Site Editor, you can set a custom image that will appear to your customers whenever they bookmark your site. This is similar to the "browser icon" that appears in all modern browser tabs but appears in a slightly different context.
Ideally, they will choose the option to Add To Home Screen. When they select their Share menu, they will see an option for "Add to Home Screen." Once they click that, your site will appear alongside all their other favorite apps.
How do I set my Custom Bookmark Icon?
First, prepare a Square Image that you'd like to use for the bookmark icon. As a best practice, keep it simple since your customers will be seeing this as an icon. We recommend using only your logo and as little text as possible.
Save your image with no transparency or animation as a PNG or JPEG at least 500x500 pixels in size. Once you've got that ready to go, head over to your dashboard.
From your dashboard, go to:
- Distribution -> Platforms
- Click Edit Theme
- Open the Global Options settings
- Find the "Bookmark Icon (Square)" setting and upload your image
- Click Publish
Now when anyone adds your site to their Home Screen they'll get to see your custom icon.
