    I’m trying to use the favicon uploader and it’s not working for me. I’ve renamed my file to favicon.ico, made it 16×16, and it’s still not working. Any suggestions?

    You could try uploading it to the your theme directory via FTP and see if that works.

    Go to /wp-content/themes/my-theme-name and then probably the images folder and just overwrite any one that might already be there

    If still no luck try regenerating the image, maybe at some larger sizes too. Just do a Google Search for hi res favicon generator.

    (Also any old one might be cached by your browser but I assume you already guessed that).

    I also offer Genesis theme setup and Photoshop (PSD) to Genesis conversions



    I’ll try your advice and let you know what happens. Thanks Nick!

    All that will probably work. If not, one other thing to check. In my custom themes, sometimes I use this line in functions.php to remove the favicon:

    remove_action(‘genesis_meta’, ‘genesis_load_favicon’);

    If that’s there, it defeats the favicon uploader, and sometimes I forgot that it’s there. :-) If so, you could just comment it out.
