Site Icon: add option for more icons

  1. Giorgos Sarigiannidis


    The native Site Icon functionality is handy, but I believe that it lacks flexibility on some occasions, since different operating systems have different demands and sometimes a single icon cannot satisfy all the different needs.

    For example, you might need to have a transparent icon on Android and on desktop browsers but not on iOS, which doesn't support transparency. Also, on Windows you might want a monochrome version of your icon, to better match the tile's design.

    Besides that, you might want to use one very simple icon with very few details as a desktop favicon and a different one for the mobile screens, where you could have a bigger image and therefore could fit more details.

    For the time being I made a small plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/favicon-extender/) to deal with it when necessary, but I was wondering if this could be something that should be addressed from withing the Core instead.
