1.admin panel==>general==>forum==>configuration(left side) click on that there is a option called forum favicon url- then put the url there.
2.sorry i dnt knw how to create a favicon.(i guess if you resize a image to very small resolution and upload to any filehosting site.. And then give its url in the forum it may work ) , also there are many site providing these service search in search engines as ''create favicon'' you might get some good sites

Hi,

When saving your new favicon, ensure it has a file of .ico or otherwise it won't work Wink

ok i already got my favicon but i dont know how to put it there:
it says:

How to add the favicon to your page ?
-Download favicon
-Put the favicon.ico file into your webserver directory
-This favicon is an animation. Internet Explorer doen't support animated favicons yet. For that reason you need to generate an additional non-animated favicon.ico file.
-Add the following lines between the <head> ... </head> tags of the page:
Spoiler:
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/PATH_TO_STATIC_FAVICON/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
<link rel="icon" href="/PATH_TO_ANIMATED_FAVICON/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
-Replace PATH_TO_STATIC_FAVICON and PATH_TO_ANIMATED_FAVICON with the correct paths

-"and what is webserver directory"-

help thanks.

Administration Panel/General/Forum/Configuration/General/ 3rd line down, Forum favicon :
Put the url of the image in this box, click save. That's it.

You'll need to upload the favicon to a image host server such as Photobucket or image shack. If it's an .ico file, you'll need to use FileDen. But I see by your instructions it's an animated file so it's an animated gif.

Edit: Since this topic is closed, I'll add this info here

I see the instructions you've posted are so
Internet Explorer can see an alternate (static)
icon since it doesn't recognize an animated gif.

You can use that method by adding this to your Css...
#1 is static icon (IE) #2 is animated icon (Firefox etc)
Code:
a[link href='http://wimg.co.uk/27v.ico' rel='shortcut icon type='image/x-icon'/]

a[link href='http://wimg.co.uk/RSh.gif' rel='icon' type='image/x-icon'/]
Edit the image addresses
Technically... uploading pics on your
Admin Panel is your webserver directory. Cool

You can host images at tinypic, photobucket etc
but they don't allow icon .ico images...
A good site to host .ico files →wimg.co.uk
