pFavicon for WordPress gives you and your users the ability to set a favicon for any page or post. Historically this was only set once for the entire website and would mean having one favicon for the entire website. Being able to set this per page and post empowers a deeper level of customization that presents a number of opportunities.
Set your content and authors apart from other browser tabs, even those from the same website.
Some additional uses:
- Marketing and targeted landing pages given a favicon relevant to the content, category, or author
- Single Page Applications (SPAs) saved on mobile will have an icon better representing its intent
- Marketplace websites giving vendors the ability to change the icon for their product pages
- Adding a fun enhancement to blog posts
