Hopefully this is the correct forum for this question. If not, let me know.
I want to use an icon (.ico) with pages in a website. In an html-coded file, the icon must be at the same level as the html page(s), NOT in a different folder. The link to the icon would be: <link rel="icon" href= "icon.ico"> and must be in the
<head></head> element of the page.
Within WordPress, can someone tell me where the icon needs to be? I tried everywhere I can think of, with no success. It seems to me that this should be easier than it is.
