Adding a favicon to your site

Looking to add a favicon to you site?

Inside your WordPress theme’s functions file (functions.php) add the following to inside your PHP code.

/**
 * FAVICON
 * @WPCult.com
 */
function my_favicon() { ?>
	<link rel="shortcut icon" href="<?php echo bloginfo("stylesheet_directory") ?>'/images/favicon.ico" />
<?php }

add_action('wp_head', 'my_favicon');

That’s it, just be sure to upload an icon image or a .gif/.png. Be sure to correct the target location id the file is located somewhere else.

      Yeah, I’ve read it. Though with more browsers supporting it, I typically like to use transparent png’s these days.

    Is there a benefit to doing it this way, instead of just adding into the header.php?
