Out of curiosity, What's a Favicon?
Nothing gets higher than where God dwells. If there is an upper limit to the universe, call it the abode of God

Admin CP  - > Style Manager - > Headers & Footers


Favicons' can be used as .ico .png & .gif images, the preferred image type is .ico, so I will only show you how to use .ico files.


If your favicon is an .ico image, please use the following code in your Header.


Code: [Select]
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="Image URL" type="image/x-icon">

Now, replace Image URL with the URL of the image from the image host you used. I will post an image host that you can use to upload .ico files, as most do not allow .ico images.


http://favicon.co.uk/ (Make sure to name your image "favicon")


Save your Headers & Footers, and your image should now show.


If you are having troubles with the image not showing up, please feel free to PM me

I think you have to put it in the metatags textarea, not the headers

It's supposed to be:
Code: [Select]
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://favicon.co.uk/ico/3483.png" type="image/favicon">

It should not be a png or jpg file it should be .ico!!
In ur case the image should be:-
3483.ico
not
3483.png!
Look at my code:-
Code: [Select]
<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://www.melior.fav.cc/favicon.ico" />
see!
Its favicon.ico file.
so convert urs into ico too.
Many online ico converters are available
