Solved How to change favicon on EVERY page

Post by Brian. on April 20th 2014, 1:11 am

I was wondering how to change the favicon on every page. I changed it on the Forum, but it wouldn't change it on my custom HTML page. It still shows the default one.

Try adding this to your custom html page.
Code:
<head>
   <link rel="shortcut icon" href="URL OF FAVICON HERE" />
</head>

If you're not using your forum header and footer then you must add it manually to your HTML page. What lightningterror provided above is correct.

Ex :
Code:
<link href="http://illiweb.com/fa/favicon/write.ico" type="image/x-icon" rel="shortcut icon">

Replace http://illiweb.com/fa/favicon/write.ico by the URL of your image.

I put that into the HTML page and it still shows the default image.


EDIT: Also tried a 48x48 image, still doesn't work.

You need to add this in the head tag on every html page , i see that you haven't yet.

Code:
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif" />
