    This is probably a really basic question – and I know there are some other posts related to this – but could someone please explain how I can ad a favicon to my site, which uses the default buddypress theme. I’m very new to this, so please use basic language and if you talk about folders, let me know where they are!

    Thanks
    Harry

    I’m assuming you’ve already generated an icon. If you haven’t, you can try a site like:
    http://www.favicon.cc/

    Next, upload your `favicon.ico` to the root of your WordPress install. (This is where files like wp-config.php reside.)
    You’ll most likely need to connect to your site via FTP in order to do this.

    Sorry it got kind of late in Spain when I posted that!

    I uploaded it using wordpress and it’s in this folder:
    wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Favicon.ico

    Is that ok?

    no no no, you should upload it by using an FTP program, like FileZilla for example (it’s free).
    just upload it on your root folder (which is where the files like wp-config.php and the folders wp-admin, wp-includes, and wp-content are). after that, you can use this plugin to set your favicon:

    It works, as I’m using it for myself.

    Ok thanks, I’ll try that. My hosting is with ipage so i should be able to do it through their FTP program.

    Does that plugin work for buddypress including on member pages?

    well i’m not sure if it’s implemented to work especially with buddypress, but i’ve been using it with BP and it works just fine.
