Favicon in Dashboard Different Yet Nothing in Functions.php (6 posts)

    I changed the favicon of my site http://www.johnrothra.com. When I did, I wanted to change the favicon for the admin Dashboard as well. I deleted the old favicon, yet it still shows up. I've done the following to no avail:

    - Completely cleared out my computer's and the website's caches
    - Checked the functions.php in the themes (both parent and child) and there's no mention of "favicon" in them
    - Deleted all instances of the old favicon image on the server (at least that I can find anywhere, incl. the WP media library)

    What could be causing it?

    Not really because I'm trying to remove the favicon, not add it. I've already searched all functions.php files and none contain any instructions regarding favicons, so there's no code to remove or adjust to point to a different image.

    If I understand you correctly, the old icon appears in the tab when you are logged into the dashboard and the new icon appears when you are logged out?

    I use a plugin called Multicons by Doc4 that allows me to setup my dashboard ans site favicons from the Dashboard/Settings menu.

    Actually, no. Whether I'm logged in or logged out, the backend stuff shows the old favicon in the browser tab.
