To change the fav-icon color for dark mode in WordPress, you can follow these general steps. Keep in mind that these steps may vary slightly depending on your WordPress theme and the tools available in your WordPress installation.

      1-Identify Dark Mode Styles:

    • Some WordPress themes come with built-in support for dark mode, and they may have specific CSS styles for dark mode. Check your theme documentation or inspect the dark mode styles using browser developer tools. 

      2-Inspect Fav-icon Code:

      • Use your browser’s developer tools to inspect the HTML code related to your favicon. Typically, you’ll find it in the <head> section of your HTML.
        3-Add Custom CSS:

        • Once you’ve identified the dark mode styles and located the favicon code, you can add custom CSS to change the favicon color specifically for dark mode. You can do this using the built-in Customizer or a custom CSS plugin.
        • In the WordPress Customizer:
          • Navigate to “Appearance” > “Customize” in your WordPress dashboard.
          • Look for a “Additional CSS” or similar option.
          • Add CSS code to target the favicon in dark mode. For example:

            @media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) {
            /* Your dark mode favicon styles here */
            #your-favicon-id {
            filter: brightness(50%); /* Adjust the brightness as needed */

            • Replace #your-favicon-id with the actual ID or class of your favicon.
        • Using a Custom CSS Plugin:
          • Install and activate a custom CSS plugin like “Simple Custom CSS” or “Customizer CSS.”
          • Go to the plugin settings or a dedicated section in your dashboard.
          • Add the CSS code similar to the example above.

            4-Save Changes:

            • After adding the custom CSS, save the changes, and preview your site in dark mode. Adjust the CSS as needed to achieve the desired fav-icon color in dark mode.

Remember that the exact steps and options may vary depending on your WordPress theme and any customization tools or plugins you have installed. Always test changes on a staging site or make a backup before applying them to a live site.
