Topic: [Release] Custom Board Favicon

This extension allows you to have a custom favicon (the little icon in the address bar of your browser to the left of the address) defined for your forum. Normally, you can just put the "favicon.ico" file in the root of your web directory, however sometimes you want to have multiple favicons on different parts of your site.

For example:

http://parallaxlan.com (see the white favicon at the root of the domain)
http://parallaxlan.com/uc (see the dark favicon specified with this extension in a sub-folder of the domain)

To use, simply install this extension and look on the main settings page of your administrative control panel:


Just put the full URL of the favicon you want to use there, and save changes. It should instantly update, but sometimes you have to restart your browser (since they cache favicons).

For more information on favicons: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon

As always, please comment on how I can improve my code if you notice anything wrong! (although I hope it's all right tongue)

Re: [Release] Custom Board Favicon

Minor fix: Favicon now renders on redirection pages.

Re: [Release] Custom Board Favicon

can you reupload?
sory for my english smile


Re: [Release] Custom Board Favicon

Because it's for 1.3, not for 1.4.

You can just upload favicon.ico file into root of your board, or/and add this line into include/template/main.tpl:


<meta charset="utf-8" />

And add after:

<link rel="Shortcut icon" href="Icon Adress" />

Re: [Release] Custom Board Favicon

Old thread, I know, but I've tried to read up on this favicon but never got it to work.
I got the correct name(favicon.ico) and it's in the root of the domain name also tried some code that I found in here, but nothing sad
Using 1.3.4 and FF 16.0.1

FF work for other places.

UPDATE: Turning OFF these two: browser.chrome.favicons & browser.chrome.site_icons, restart browser, turn them on again,
restart again then then at least the TabBar icon worked. So weird sad
