How can I change the Favicon in my DPD store?

  1. Select Theme from the left menu of your DPD dashboard and then Edit your active theme
  2. Click the "Drag and Drop Files to Upload" box
  3. Upload your icon
  4. You'll need to discern the mimetype of that icon and make note of it. Some common mimetypes are image/gif, image/png, image/ico. More configuration examples can be found here
  5. From the Theme Editor page select the Layout option
  6. Add the following to the head tag on line 3:
    <link rel="icon" type="image/ico" href="">
  7. Put the cursor on the href attribute and select the Insert Asset option
  8. Select the asset and add it, it will look like this when you do:
    "{{ "favicon.ico"|asset_url }}"
  9. Configure the mimetype correctly and save the change.
  10. Before and after example images below:

    This is ridiculously complicated! You really should consider making a way to upload and .ico file and have your system take care of the HTML coding afterward...

    BTW there is no "manage assets" link on the Theme page

    Hi Chase - appreciate the article...

    ... however as Zerach said this is too complicated. I also just want to add a favicon to my stores without any coding.

    I just came from editing a Leadpages landing page where it's just a button click to upload a new favicon.

    Would love it to be that simple on GetDPD!
