Add favicon to risotto theme website

How to add favicon? I have tried using favicon generater and adding html to layouts/partials/head/custom.html and favicons to static but doesnt work

Is this is the theme?

Yes sir. That is the theme I am using

I’m afraid that you have to override the template via creating the following file, since the head/custom won’t will imported by the theme automatically.

<title>{{ with .Title }}{{ . }} &ndash; {{end}}{{ .Site.Title }}</title>
{{ with .Site.Params.about }}<meta name="description" content="{{ .description }}">{{ end }}
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<meta charset="UTF-8"/>
{{ if .Site.Params.noindex }}<meta name="robots" content="noindex" /> {{ end }}

{{ partialCached "head/custom" . }}

The simplest way to add a favicon (I don’t know about manifest files) is with

<link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="path/to/favicon.ico">

Whether there’s already a default favicon or not in a theme is simple, just search in your files for rel=icon or rel=“icon”.
Write the link tag in custom.html so it’s not overwritten by new updates, then put the icon at the root of static for simplicity’s sake…) and you’re good to go.

You have to call the partial to your head.html like @razon commented.
