Re: Favicon Is Usually Simple

It depends on your themes and directory structure. Check the html source code of your page to see the location (< link rel="shortcut icon" ...).
Default is root (/favicon.ico).

To change favicon everywhere you must change all the favicons.

xoopsroot/favicon.ico
xoopsroot/themes/default/icons/favicon.png
xoopsroot/themes/default/icons/favicon.ico

If you change all these then you are good to smile.

Re: Favicon Is Usually Simple

I'm digging up the dead... xbootstrap doesn't have an "icons" directory.
And although the blue bubble thang isn't ugly, it doesn't go with my decor.

Where are all the instances of favicon.ico and favicon.png located in the bootstrap theme?

Re: Favicon Is Usually Simple

In the main folder of xoops.
see here
<link href="<{$xoops_url}>/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon">

You can find this code here

Re: Favicon Is Usually Simple

If you simply put an file named favicon.ico at the root of your public HTML folder, most of modern browsers will show it, no code needed...
