Step 17 - Add Favicon

You should have created a logo and a favicon in a previous step.

First upload all your logo versions and your favicon to the media library.

Since version 6.1.1 of WordPress, the customizer has been removed from the WordPress menu. In the past, we used to set up the favicon by going to Dashboard → Appearance → Customize → Site Identity  and clicking on the select site icon button. 

As this no longer exists in the menu, you can still reach the customizer by changing the URL at the top of the page to the following : https://yourdomain.com/wp-admin/customize.php

Obviously change yourdomain.com to be the domain you are working with.

Once you get there you can select your favicon file from the media library As your favicon should already be square, you can skip cropping.  

More Information

Remember a favicon must be simple and easy to recognise at a very, very small size. So keep it to one colour and flat with no shading or shadows.
