Tagged: favicon sizes
I have searched these forums for 'Favicon' but haven't found a single 'guide' on what should be a reasonable approach to setting up a favicon in a Genesis child theme (mine is MagazinePro).
I have only found mentioning of 512x512 size favicon not showing in this thread Link
So, my question is do we really need 7-10 or whatever favicons to cover Windows 10/IOS/Android/Catalina for MAC and top 3-5 popular browsers Chrome/Safari/Firefox/Internet Explorer/what have you?
Initially, I thought I could just upload 512x512 PNG and I will be fine but after some research on Google stumbled across various articles recommending 7-10 various size favicons for various systems.
I don't aim to help all users on the planet with every single browser to see my modest favicon/webssite but if 70-80% of those who are up to speed with the technology can get see it properly, I will be happy. So, could you tell if a single 512x512 favicon can work and why we don't need 7-10 different favicons (if we actually don't need them)? Also, is PNG ok for favicon and if I can compress it safely using some website (like tinypng.com).https://moneysaurus.com
Site Identity is a WordPress feature, not Genesis. If you go to the Apearance / Customize page in the WordPress Admin area, SIte Identity should be the first option at the top of the menu on the left. Upload a logo 512x512 and WordPress will automatically generate the required sizes for the favicon and mobile devices.
Of course, if you choose not to use the WordPress feature, your child theme can still use a traditional favicon. Copy it into the child theme's root directory.
Thank you, that makes perfect sense. Sure, I will use WordPress feature to make my life easier.
Do you think I will be ok with PNG file format for 512x-512 image or it is better to use SVG/something else?
Great to know that. Thank you so much!
Go to the themes section of your development area and create a new folder under themes . If you're using the default Genesis theme, or you're using a specific theme, you'll want to choose the name of the theme and add “-child” to the folder name. browse around here to check details.
