In progress Favicons not showing after domain change?

Post by Yous000 on May 30th 2014, 3:01 am

When I go to wolfpacksx.forumotion.com my favicon shows
When I go to forum.wolfpack.sx my favicon shows
When I go to wolfpack.sx (my actual domain) no favicon shows not even for the admin control panel. Also it does not even show the forum name.

How it should look:

Hello,

Did you try re-uploading your favicon on your AP?

Hello ^^

You will never get favicons on wolfpack.sx since your board is loading as a frame. The URL in the adressbar remains the same wherever we are on the forum.

Source code of "your" index page :
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html>
  <head>
    <title>wolfpack.sx</title>
  </head>
  <frameset>
    <frame src="http://forum.wolfpack.sx" name="redir">
    <noframes>
      <p>Original location:
        <a href="http://forum.wolfpack.sx">http://forum.wolfpack.sx</a>
      </p>
    </noframes>
  </frameset>
</html>

I think it may be a disaster for your SEO
No description, no metatags, no title, nothing.

Checked it and yeah, as Neptune said, this is something to do with them.
Using iframe as source is really a disaster.

Then what is the best fix to keep my domain url wolfpack.sx while not being a disaster for SEO and get my favicon working?

Hello,

just add in your index page, after
Code:
<title>wolfpack.sx</title>

this line:
Code:
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="FAVICONLINK" />
and replace FAVICONLINK with your own favicon :rose:

I'm not finding the line you are mentioning. By index page are you referring to Index_body?

I mean the index page of your domain.. the index page of the page that doesn't have the favicon

It's not only the favicon though. It does not change to the forums actual title of 'The Wolf Pack' if I go through wolfpack.sx

Also even when I go to my admin CP through wolfpack.sx the little greenbox next to 'Welcome to your admin' does not show it shows that same blank paper looking thing.
