Favicon / Site Icon Issue

    It seems that since I updated my WordPress to the newest version (4.7.1) my site icon has stopped appearing on the front end and only displays the WordPress “W”. It still displays on the back end however. Is there something I can edit in the code to fix this issue, or would this just be a bug? For information’s sake I am using the recommended size of 512 x 512 and it is a png file.

    Hi Paul,

    Please provide a link to your site so that we can investigate further.

    I am seeing this as your favicon:

    It’s definitely not supposed to be that. In the theme customizer I have it set to cropped-Spiral-FaviconFinal.png

    Like I said, it shows up properly on the back end of my site but when I view the front end it shows that WordPress “W”.

    Is there a way to manually change it then?

    Try setting it in Graphene Options > Display > Miscellaneous > Favicon URL.

    Okay, I tried setting the favicon that way (Graphene Options > Display > Miscellaneous > Favicon URL), but it still just shows the WordPress “W” on my site. I tried it through the link that says “upload or select image from gallery” and I also tried manually inserting the URL. As well I tried a couple different file formats (.jpeg, .png) all with the same negative results.

    You’ve done it correctly. However, browsers such as Chrome do cache favicons for sites, so you may not see them updated immediately. Here’s the favicon I see for your site using IE:

    Yes, I ended up having to manually upload the image through my cpanel and then added a bit of code in the header to manually fetch it.

    thanks for your help though.
