changing favicon in wordpress theme

I am customizing a a word press theme for my blog. I am trying to change the favicon, But I do not know how to do that. I checked all settings, there is no option for favicon. Can anybody will tell me how to change that.


I usually add a favicon in my site's root directory because some browsers look there by default.

function so18074365_favicon() {
  printf( "<link rel=\"shortcut icon\" type=\"image/\" href=\"%s/favicon.ico\" />\n", site_url() );

add_action( 'wp_head', 's018074365_favicon' );

Add this function to your functions.php and upload your favicon.ico to your wordpress root folder.

If you want to add the favicon in yout theme folder, add this one:

function so18074365_favicon() {
  printf( "<link rel=\"shortcut icon\" type=\"image/\" href=\"%s/favicon.ico\" />\n", get_stylesheet_directory_uri() );

add_action( 'wp_head', 's018074365_favicon' );

–°onsidering the Wordpress Codex you'd

  1. Go to your WordPress Administration Panel.
  2. Click on Design (called Presentation in WordPress 2.3.x and below, and Appearance in WordPress 2.7+).
  3. Click on Theme Editor.
  4. Select the file called Header or header.php to edit the file.
  5. Search for the line of code that begins with <link rel="shortcut icon" and ends with /favicon.ico" />. Overwrite it, if it exists, or add the following code below the <head> HTML tag. <link rel="shortcut icon" href="<?php echo get_stylesheet_directory_uri(); ?>/favicon.ico" />

  6. Save the changes.

Note. Dont forget to upload favico into you current theme root via any acceptable way.

Hope it helps. Cheers!
