How to Add a Favicon in WordPress CodeUnit 30 MAR 2010

Favicons as we all know are extremely important to a site, because a) it helps people identify your site brand quicker and b) it looks totally groovy when someone actually bothers to bookmark your site.

Now creating and setting a favicon for a website isn’t particularly difficult to do in the first place, but thanks to the team behind the WP Favicon plugin for WordPress, it is now pretty much a case of download, install and activate to set one up on your beloved WordPress blog.

It accepts either a classic .ico or .gif  icon file ranging from 16×16 to 32×32 in dimension, and the only other work you have to do is physically upload your favicons into the pointed out directory. (Note you can make use of the clever site to generate a favicon if you’re feeling a little creatively stumped.)

And that’s it. Once activated and assuming that your current theme forgot to set one, you should now have a nice and shiny favicon staring back at you in the address bar.

Simple as that.
