If you don’t know who is a “favicon”, then i can try to explain. It is a small logo image in your browser’s tab corner. Today favicon playing a very important role, this is your website or blog branding, so people can come back to your website just by seeing your favicon, your visit card in other words. If you want, that your favicon is added to all devices, you need a lot of different sizes of your logo image, so this WordPress plugin “Fresh Favicon” helps to add your branding in all devices like touch screens, mobile devices, tablets and so on.
What’s so special about this plugin?
Did you know that in order to show your favicon on the most popular devices you need to have at least 15 different favicon images (.png, .ico), one background color and an .xml config file?
Every device and browser has it’s own requirements for a favicon image format and it’s size. And let’s face it, your WordPress theme might have an option to set a favicon but it’s probably just doing the bare technical minimum (1 image, no background color, no .xml config) – which is why it will not be seen on so many devices.
Theme developers understandably do not have the time to learn all this favicon magic because it is actually very complex. That’s why we have decided to create a timeless plugin for all your favicon needs which we will keep updated as the technology evolves.
The point of this plugin is to have an always up-to-date way to easily select your favicon without worrying about all the technical stuff. You just upload one or more images to the upload-ready input fields while following the on-screen instructions and the plugin will generate all the necessary favicons for you.
