    I am new to WordPress and just purchased GP Premium. GP Premium 1.9.1 is installed and active, and the theme GP 2.4.2 is installed and active. Cache has been flushed in all places.

    Chrome Inspector Network tab shows favicon.ico and w-logo-blue.png for the url http://mpotkin.com/hiking-in-oak-park/, yet I don’t see any reference to favicon.ico or w-logo-blue.png in the Chrome Inspector Elements tab HTML. gtmetrix.com, for this same url, refers to these same two files as http://mpotkin.com/favicon.ico and http://mpotkin.com/wp-admin/images/w-logo-blue.png. These two files are referred to by gtmetrix.com under “Minimize Redirects” and recommends removing the redirect chain if possible, referring to http://mpotkin.com/favicon.ico and http://mpotkin.com/wp-admin/images/w-logo-blue.png.

    I must be missing something when I am looking at the HTML page under Chrome Inspector Elements because I don’t see either of these two files. Both of these files are WordPress logos. Is there a reason why these two files don’t appear to be referenced in the HTML shown by Chrome Inspector Elements? And, is there a benefit to these two files downloading with the rest of the webpage?

    Hi there,

    favicon.ico is requested by the browser I think. You can upload your favicon.ico file to your root directory so it at least loads the icon.

    Otherwise, you can upload a site icon in Customize > Site Identity, which should prevent the favicon.ico request.

    A for the w-logo-blue.png – that almost looks like the WordPress logo on the login page. I’m not seeing it referenced on that page at all (not even in any of the resources). Very weird.. Does it happen if you have no other plugins activated?

    I uploaded a site icon as you requested. Now I get one file showing up which is the site icon I uploaded auto-cropped. Question answered.

    Thank you,

    Michael
