Ideally you would have a favorite icon that is relevant to you or your client’s business. This could be a logo, symbol or letter.
Creating a Favicon
How to create a custom favicon that can be displayed in your Genesis child theme.
- First create the image file in your favorite image editor that is 16×16 (or at least a square) and save it. Note: typically I take the client’s business logo and make sure it’s a square and sometimes its as large as 150x150px and the converter does not mind.
- Next goto http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/ which is an oldie but a goodie.
- Click “Choose File”
- Then Click “Create Icon”
- And that’s it!
Now upload it to your Genesis Child Themes image directory and add the path to the above snippet.
