Support » Fixing WordPress » Favicon?

  • Resolved LisaKay03


    I would love to add a favicon.ico to my website, but am completely illiterate with coding and almost everything coding related.

    Please help me! I have a picture I just don’t know how to upload it to my site and where/how to put it in the code.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Look in the plugins here for a favicon one…

    You can also google for sites that will help you create one….

    Put the favicon.ico in the root directory.

    Add this code to your header.php, <link rel="shortcut icon" href="" type="image/" /> just after all the meta data.

    Then wait. It takes a while to propergate.

    How do I put the favicon.ico into the root directory? And how do I know where the meta data ends? (You’ve been so helpful, thank you very much)

    You would FTP the ico file to the root directory just like you did the WP files?

    Open your header.php file that is in your theme. There will be lines of code there starting with “meta name.” After the last of those put the data I had above.

    For those who don’t speak geek (like me)…This is how I found my Root Directory and my image file: I went to my Hosting Company Control Panel (like Blu Host, Go Daddy, or whoever you have), Then “File Manager”, then “Document Root for “www.My”, then “wp-content”, then “themes”, then “name of your theme”, then “images”.
