I have a number of WordPress Blogs hosted from my domain and until recently hadn’t realised that I could have a different favicon for each one. In case you are unfamiliar with a favicon, it’s the little icon that appears beside the site name/address in your browser when you visit that site. For this site, that is a miniature picture of me!
Anyway, here is how to use a specific icon for any given blog (WordPress only):
- Place a copy of the icon file (favicon.ico) in the top level area where your WordPress blog has been installed.
- Edit the
header.phpfile for the theme you are using. This is usually located in
wp-content/themes/<themename>for WordPress blogs).
- Add the following line and save the file.
- Refresh the site from your browser and you’re all done!
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" />
