Favicon only appears on homepage not other sub pages [WordPress]

How to show favicon on homepage and all other sub pages?

Don’t worry we have come with a very easiest method based on single step to solve this problem. We know favicon is very important to beautify your Website or WordPress Blog. If it is appearing only on the homepage but not all the pages, this becomes a bug in your blog.

Your site or blog must be bug free in order to attract a nice amount of traffic.

Note: If your favicon is only appearing on the homepage that means you have given the relative path. Check the method below:

You have added the code as below inside the head tag in the header.php

<link href="favicon.png" rel="shortcut icon">

Here is your mistake in the href value, for home it takes the “favicon.png” because it is in the same directory but for other pages it cannot find the “favicon.png”. So, change the href value to absolute path as given below:

<link href="http://www.yourwebsite.com/favicon.png" rel="shortcut icon">

Here you go, it is done. Any other question and queries? Feel free to ask in comments.
