1. Amazing find Jeff. I’ve been searching for something like this for quite a while :)

  2. Last but not least, copy the code provided to you and paste it within your sites head section.

    No, please don’t do this. The favicon you just worked so hard on will go bye-bye when you switch Themes. instead, put the code in a site-functionality Plugin,:

    function sitename_favicon() {
    <!– HTML Code goes here –>
    add_action( 'wp_head', 'sitename_favicon' );

    (Hoping the PRE tags work here…)

    1. I would still stick it in the theme usually, as I’d almost always want the favicon to change at the same time as the theme.

        1. I rarely work on anything but custom themes which never get updated.

    2. Well, I don’t know how to create a functionality plugin. Perhaps Philippe could add this technique to his generator. We won’t be changing themes for a long time but still, wouldn’t want to forget about it if we did.

          1. It looks like it just spits back a URL to the image, so you could simply grab that, place it in the uploads folder and link to it directly. So it should indeed be possible to make a plugin handle that without putting the file(s) in the root.

      1. I must admit I don’t know much about WordPress. Creating a plugin is not in my plans. However, what I’m going to do to add an API to RFG. With such API, a plugin developer will be able to ask you (the WordPress admin) the master picture you want to use, then redirect you to RFG to customize the favicon, and finally get the result (pics+HTML) to integrate it to the blog with whatever method.

  3. I’ve always used All in one Favicon, it saves an iOS style icon I uploaded when I bookmark the page. Can’t beat that.

    That being said, the tool itself does look and work as described. It is a good find!

    1. I’ve been reading through that ticket and it’s hard to understand why it’s been over three years since something like it has been added to WordPress. I see it as just a Favicon but apparently it was more difficult than that. What were the major hurdles in implementing something?

  4. It’s a neat little website, but I find it a little odd that the site reports errors with your favicon setup, even if you use exactly what it just generated…

  5. Works with

    So in my parent template (or template, but not a child) each link appears like this

    <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="57×57" href="/apple-touch-icon-57×57.png”>
