How Does It Work?
The PHP codes of this plugin lets you upload your own favourite icon to the server. Once the pages of your website are accessed by the users, WordPress loads an action hook named
wp_header on every page request. On every
wp_header action hook the plugin appends required favicon image code to all the web pages. The procedure is the same for all post types such as the home page, category page, post pages or custom pages. This enables web browsers to load and display favicon icon for your WordPress website.
