phpBB How to change web icon or favicon.ico

Post#1 by tim » 27 Sep 2016, 03:21


also known as the favicon.ico
How I changed this on this forum phpBB version 3.1.9
I first found the file forumroot/styles/templatename/template/overall_header.html
find code

Code: Select all

</head>
after, add

Code: Select all

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">
Then i manually deleted all files in forumroot/cache/ (except .htaccess and index.html)

It worked but I wasn't happy with the icon it was over transparent background so I wanted it over some black background to make it stand out a bit.
But when i re-did above steps it didn't refresh for some reason not sure where it cached the favicon.ico
So what i did was named this second version favicon2.ico and changed the code to

Code: Select all

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon2.ico">
and manually deleted cached files and it worked and i am happy with the web icon (favicon now).

I used http://www.xiconeditor.com/ to create ico file. I just clicked import and uploaded a 64x64 png file. Then exported to get .ico file.
Here's the icon:

Pretty sweet, I think. You can see it on any browser tab that is pointing to anywhere on this forum..and if users book mark it it also shows up on book mark on book mark tool bar. :D
