Good news, folks! It doesn’t get any easier than this! Follow these super easy steps to add a custom favicon to your WordPress site. These instructions will work if you’re using any Dinosaur Stew theme, and they should work for most other WordPress themes, too.
In your WordPress admin area, go to Appearance >> Customize, then click on “Site Identity“.
Here you can change the site title, tagline, and site icon. The site icon will be shrunk down and used as a favicon. The icon that you upload should be a minimum of 512px x 512px. Upload your icon of choice and save!
* Please note that it may take a few refreshes for your new favicon to appear for you in your browser bar. If it’s still not showing up after a couple times of hitting that refresh button, you may need to clear your cache, both within your browser or within WordPress if you have a cacheing plugin installed.
