Manifest
« on: January 17, 2019, 10:59:21 am »
Hi,


I can't get the new website manifest option to work.  I've loaded a 192x192 PNG into the configuration box under Admin, then when I add the site to my favourites under Safari (MacOS or iOS) the icon that comes up is one of blue, red and green cubes.   Can you help?


thanks
S

Sorry.  What I meant was that it starts https rather than http but the forum does not use SSL.

That shouldn't impact it.
I think you need to setup a favicon There is a setting in the admin area to upload a fav icon

The manfiest is mainly used as an app icon on iOS and android when you add your forum as an app to your home screen

I've got a favicon loaded too but doesn't show.  It's 64x64.  Do the size or name matter?

Tried uploading a 128x128 favicon (PNG) but the image showing is not changing.  Do I need to go and delete it from somewhere first?

Any ideas on what to try next?


The first favicon I uploaded is still there, so it perhaps add new ones rather than replace the old one?
