    Your own documentation and even WordPress respository direct me to this barren page when I click to “Custom Favicon Plugin” FAQ and also this same barren page for Support. What’s the deal???

    Curiously enough, this comment section says “No one has commented yet”. What a surprise?

      Hi Tommy. This site was supposed to be re-designed with proper content and launched a while back, but haven’t had the chance to go about it.

      Also, no one has commented here because no one found a bug yet. If you do find a bug, please fell free to report it.

    Frustrated as well. Installed and the plugin is just not working at all for me.

    On the setting page of Custom Favicon there are four different images. Could someone please explain to me what they are and their respective size? Thanks!!

      Hello Wang. The labels are next to each upload field. Its for uploading favicon hence the smaller the better for first 2 fields (General Favicon for frontend & backend) and for remaining 2 are for Apple devices (Frontend & Backend) hence they need to be larger.

    Hi, I’ve got a problem with uploading images for my apple touch icon. I am in in the Custom Favicon Settings but the “Upload an image”-Buttons don’t work. What should i do?

      Hi. Thanks for pointing it out. There was some issue with JS file after yesterday’s changed. I have just fixed it and released and update. Once you update you would be able to upload images for the custom favicon. Let me know if you run across any other issue.

  5. I have uploaded the image and saved, yet I go back to the main plugin page and nothing is saved.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks very much for this simple and useful plugin. At first I had difficulty finding it but once I found it under Dashboard/Settings, the implementation was very easy!

  7. Hi

    Please can you advise how to carry out your installation instruction as below:

    “Upload the directory /custom-favicon/ to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory”

    Is this to be done in cPanel?

    Thanks in advance

    • Hello Neil,

      If you are familiar with WordPress, you just have to go to “Plugins > Add New” and search for “Custom Favicon” and install directly from there.
