When I moved my blog over from blogger to WordPress, the first theme I tried is the theme I still currently use on this blog, I wanted to customize it to my taste and add that very refining touch to make it look different from the default Eleven40 theme, I successfully did that but got stucked on adding a favicon to the theme, I tried the genesis favicon uploader plugin it didn’t work either, I’ve seen a lot of blogs who run the genesis framework still using the default favicon that came with the theme, and I think they got stuck too, so here’s a guide that will teach you how to create and add a favicon to your blog.
Follow this steps to create a favicon
First thing you should do if you want to create a favicon is get a logo for your blog, the logo would be your blogs logo and should be unique, if you can’t create an icon then go over to www.iconfinder.com and search for an icon that relates to what your blogging niche is about and download it. Then head over to Dynamic Drive to convert the .png icon you got from icon finder to a favicon in a .ico format. Once there you would see an option to choose file, click on it and choose the logo you downloaded from icon finder and the click Create Icon. All done after that download the favicon to your pc and save.
How to Add the Favicon to your Theme
Adding the favicon to your theme is just as easy as creating it, only you have to access your cpanel and get your ftp details from it, on getting the ftp details use either the filezilla software or an online ftp client which you can get at www.ftplive.com. After successfully login in the ftp details go over to the images folder of the genesis framework and upload the favicon you can get it on public_html –> wp-content –> themes –> genesis –> images
After uploading it there you should also upload it in your child themes images folder you can get to it on public_html –> wp-content –> themes –> [your child theme] –> images.
After uploading it you are done. All you have to do next is Hard refresh your blog page and see the favicon above.
