Hello I created a favicon and need to know how to implement it into the site.

I already changed the favicon.ico but the Wp icon still appears.

Thanks,
Shawn

Hi, if you’ll go to Appearance → Editor → Header.php

Find this line:

<?php wp_head(); ?> 

Just above that, add this line:

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="<?php echo get_bloginfo('stylesheet_directory');?>/favicon.ico">

Now, if you put favicon.ico in the Breeze theme directory, you should be able to see it or you can change the “href” path if you prefer to put it somewhere else.

Most browsers cache these pretty deep, so it may be necessary to clear your browser’s cache.

Its up, I did not have to change everything. I think it was due to the cache. Thanks. On another note, when I view my page in firefox the bottom 1 footer is all weird looking. Can you take a look at it? http://acelocalseo.com/

Yes, it looks like there’s a white text-shadow.

If you go to Appearance → Editor → style2.css

Find this line:

#footer, #footer .widget {
    color: #CEDADC;
    text-shadow: 1px 1px 0 #FFFFFF;
}


change to:

#footer, #footer .widget {
    color: #CEDADC;
    text-shadow: 1px 1px 0 #315B7C;
}

You’ll need to move the favicon.ico file to the wp-content/themes/breeze folder.

I added the code you listed above, dumped the browser cache and added the favicon to the breeze folder, But the favicon is still a Wordpress icon.

I figured out the problem. You need to add both a .ico file AND a favicon.gif file, then it shows up immediately.
