What's the proper way to add a favicon in Wordpress without a plugin?
Do I just place a file called favicon.ico with my icon grafik into the root of my site?
Do I also need this code or is that necessary?
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://example.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
Some say it's this code:
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="http://yourblog.com/favicon.png" />
And this is for iPhones?
Any suggestions on software to create it or to convert it from a thumbnail? And what types of files are supported - just .ico?
I saw another thread (below) with so many methods and I was unclear what is the best practice for this simple task. How to change the WordPress favicon?
