    Hi guys,

    Im using a site to generate my favicons. https://favicon.io/ it then says to do this

    First, use the download button to download the files listed below. Place the files in the root directory of your website.

    android-chrome-192×192.png
    android-chrome-512×512.png
    apple-touch-icon.png
    favicon-16×16.png
    favicon-32×32.png
    favicon.ico
    site.webmanifest
    Next, copy the following link tags and paste them into the head of your HTML.

    <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="180x180" href="/apple-touch-icon.png">
    <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="/favicon-32x32.png">
    <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="/favicon-16x16.png">
    <link rel="manifest" href="/site.webmanifest">

    Do you see any issues doing this? And can you tell me the best way to get that code in the head?

    Thank you for your help

    Hi there,

    You can also upload favicon this way:

    To insert code in to <head>, you can try the wp_head hook with a hook element:

    Hi there,

    Will your site be a Progresive Web App ? ie. the use can add site to the homescreen of their device? If not then that code is not really required.
