What's in the HREF hashtags should be the path to the ICO file, as Libinbabu53 pointed out. Notice how going to http://www.melior.fav.cc/favicon.ico shows you the favicon, because that path is correct.

Michel: The links within the HREF tags in the code you have are incorrect. It must be a valid link for it to work correctly.

According to wikipedia, most web browsers support .png and .jpg files as favicons
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

Yes but we have to consider the old timers that still use IE. :P

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
Works 100%, Thanks :)

We can only give you support on the forum that is hosted with Create A Forum.

I do believe there is a Favicon modification for self-hosted forums though.

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


Resize the favicon you want to use, upload it to http://eypic.net and change the URL to the url you get from Eypic.


Hope this helps.

Oh No ! No one is 'getting this' are they ?


I have the favicon installed and it works on www.ukwholesaleforum.createaforum.com


My forum is then hosted/directed, whatever you like to call it, to www.wholesalechat.co.uk


The favicon works on the first but not the second domain

The main domain is a frame redirect
Code: [Select]
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Frameset//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-frameset.dtd">

<html>
<head>
<title>Wholesale Chat</title>
<meta name="keywords" content="Wholesale Chat" />
<meta name="description" content="Wholesale Chat" />
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
</head>
<frameset rows="100%">
<frame src="http://ukwholesaleforum.createaforum.com" title="Wholesale Chat" frameborder="0" noresize="noresize"/>
<noframes>
<body>
<h1>Wholesale Chat</h1>
<p><a href="http://ukwholesaleforum.createaforum.com">http://wholesalechat.co.uk/</a></p>
</body>
</noframes>
</frameset>
</html>

Which does not support favicons the best way to get it working is to park the domain with us and use as your forum's domain in order for the favicon to work.

Yep , thats what I've done, otherwise my domain address wouldn't be working - but it is.


So my forum displays exactly the same on www.ukwholesaleforum.createaforum.com as it does on my domain www.wholesalechat.co.uk

At the moment you have a redirect which is different forwards the request from that site to your createaforum.com site but doesn't change your createaforum links
