I've noticed, though, that a lot of blogs still have the default Genesis favicon in place. Wouldn't it be great to have your own favicon? It's good for branding.
Here's what I'm talkin' about:
I've already written a post about favicons called How to Make and Install a Favicon if you need to know the basics. The process of installing a favicon is a bit different for Genesis since Genesis uses child themes.
So if you're still sportin' the Genesis favicon, here's a few extra things to do…
Installing a favicon in Genesis
But in order to get your favicon to show up in Genesis, you should upload your favicon in your Genesis child theme images folder. And actually, I install it in my root directory (as explained in this post) as well as my Genesis images folder just for good measure.

- Create your favicon as described in How to Make and Install a Favicon.
- Fire up FTP. (Here's how to use FTP.)
- Drag and replace your newly created favicon into your root directory. Simply click on the "public_html" folder.
- Install your favicon into Genesis: public_html –> wp-content –> themes –> genesis –> images
- Install your favicon into your Genesis child theme as well: public_html –> wp-content –> themes –> [your child theme] –> images.
