Favicons are the small icons for your website that are typically displayed in your web browser.
Favicons can be created using various image editing software. Easier solutions involve generating a favicon from an image using a website such this, or creating your own favicon using Faviconer. If you would like to change the favicon of your theme, follow these instructions:
- Log in to the server of your site using an FTP client such FileZilla, or within your hosting options.
- Locate the images folder within your themes directory. The path should be similar to wp-content > themes > sw_theme> assets>img.
- Upload your favicon.ico file in to the images directory, overwriting the existing favicon file.
- You are done!
Note: Favicons are registered deep in your browsers cache. So you may not see the change right away unless your browser cache is cleared and/or restarted.
