    Did you upload the favicon.ico file to your site and try the PHP code at the end of your child theme’s functions.php file?

    // Load custom favicon
    add_filter( ‘genesis_pre_load_favicon’, ‘custom_favicon_filter’ );
    function custom_favicon_filter( $favicon_url ) {
    return ‘';

    (Maybe this code no longer works with the ‘pro’ themes / HTML5? I would not think there would be a problem, but maybe someone will try it and let us know.)



    The plugin linked below works well if you just want a quick easy method.

    You will observe it hasn’t been updated in a while, but I find it works nicely with any of the old themes as well as any of the new HTML5 Genesis 2.0 themes.



    I get the same error message when using the code above.

    I had a .ico image working and with new modern-portfolio using a png for the favicon I’m looking for other options.

    What error do you get when using the code? Please post it for me to see.

    Maybe this code no longer works on HTML5 StudioPress themes. It works on the HTML5 converted Appfinite Legacy theme.

    I’ll have to download one of the new SP themes and give it a try later today. I’ll report back.

    Does anyone know if SP dropped the genesis_pre_load_favicon filter? Is there a current list (for Gen 2.x) of filters and actions, etc. somewhere? It is still listed here, but not sure this is current:

    Had a similar issue as the original poster with a client of mine. The favicon showed up fine everywhere but Pinterest. After three months of the old favicon showing at Pinterest, it finally updated on its own.
