    Hi looking for some assistance please. I downloaded a favicon in a .ico file type. Uploaded it to Control Panel, File Manager public_FTP. Under WordPress, header.php I changed the file <link rel="icon" href="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /> to <link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”<?php echo get_option(‘home’); ?>/favicon.ico” />. It didn't work. Must have gone wrong somewhere. New to this so hoping for some step by step advice. Thanks

    Why did you change the code? Have you seen the reference on installing a favicon? http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Favicon

    First, some browsers now do not show a site's favicon...they may appear in a tab only now...

    Second, is WP installed at 'public_FTP'? This file will be in the same directory called the root of your wp installation which will have your site's .htaccess file and it's wp-config.php file.

    Third, Where did you download the file from? Be very weary of adding downloaded files to your site(s). (refer to First)
