Where to put your Favicon in Divi
In a recent Divi update (I believe it was version 3.9 or 3.10) the area where you put your favicon is gone. Have no fear though, you can still put a favicon in by going to the Theme Customizer > Site Identity > Site Icon area. Just make sure the file is 512px x 512px and is a png or jpg!
Cheers and hope this quick tip helps.

Thanks. The site icon has been there for quite a while now. The question is, does it make sense to use such a huge image for the favicon. Unless of course WP renders it to an ico file in different sizes. Not sure what’s going on in the backend there. Obviously, you need the 512 size for it to play nicely in browsers when you start a new tab and have added a URL to your favorites. Really not sure if I‘m happy about this.
Yeah I know what you mean, Tanya. I actually never knew it was there 🙂 I had always used the theme customizer. Maybe they’ll add it back in. Maybe the bigger size is for retina screens? It certainly does seem unnecessarily big.
Thanks Josh , forgot about that setting, I always used the one in theme options ironically lol
Same here, Faiek! I didn’t even know the Theme Customizer had an option for it until this week 🙂
Great, Josh! Nice tip!
I sometimes used both, just to make sure. Never got the idea behind it.
That’s a good idea, Anton. Yeah honestly I’m not sure of the difference between the two.
Thanks Josh, this came to rescue before I pulling my hair out 😀
Awesome to hear! Thanks for letting me know, Reza 🙂
Thanks Josh – I may figure this out before you can answer, but what if you want the URL for that favicon? For example, if I want to use the favicon URL for another site I manage, or to place into quickfunnels, unbounce, etc…
mmm not sure on that now that there isn’t a URL option…
Thanks another thinn learn
Thanks, Josh! Quick Google search and there was your tutorial… awesome! 🙂
Thanks. It was really frustrating….
