Here is two very simple tips to let you add your own favicon in your admin area.

In both cases, we will use the admin_head hook.

The first one let you define the favicon for your whole admin area. You have to use it within you theme/child theme functions.php file.

function bweb_admin_favicon() {
    $favicon_url = get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . 'img/icon_bweb.png';
    echo '<link rel="shortcut icon" href="' . $favicon_url . '" />';
add_action( 'admin_head', 'bweb_admin_favicon' );


The second one let you define your favicon for your own plugin pages only. You have to use this function within your plugin files.

function bweb_plugin_admin_favicon() {
    $screen = get_current_screen();
    if ( $screen->id != 'toplevel_page_' . 'plugin-ID' )

  	$favicon_url = plugin_dir_url(__FILE__) . 'img/icon_bweb.png';
	echo '<link rel="shortcut icon" href="' . $favicon_url . '" />';
add_action( 'admin_head', 'bweb_plugin_admin_favicon' );


You have to edit the plugin-ID and replace it by your own plugin ID. If you don’t know it, just go to your plugin page and look at the URL.

  1. Without more information, I’m not able to help. Take care of your favicon’s URL and it should works out of the box.
