Most image hosting site, like Photobucket, Imageshack, TinyPic, etc., should work.

From Imageshack's FAQ:

Which file types am I allowed to upload?

Imageshack supports all major image formats including jpeg, png, gif, ico, bmp, and tiff. Imageshack also supports video formats including avi, mkv, mpeg, mp4, mov, wmv, 3gp, flv, and many others. Please note, animated gifs are only available to subscribed registered users.

Hi!

You don't actually need to upload a .ico file, simply upload it as an image file and you should be able to use it in the admin panel. Smile

Yep, that's the right place. Simply paste the direct link to your image there and it should work. Smile

Have you tried http://www.iconj.com/icon_generator.php Smile or Free favicon hosting Smile

or make it a gif file and save via servimg.com the forum photo host site

example
Code:
http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/12/93/20/79/favico10.gif
enter it in the ACP General>>Forum>>configuration>>forum favicon save and when you go to your index page reload the page Very Happy

Ok so what i got from everyone is that, it doesnt need to be a .ico file, but the thing is whenever i put a link into the favicon in my forum admin panel, it doesnt show up and it doesnt give me an error or anything, it just displays the old favicon that was there before it. For some reason only the favicons the panel has work, i cant insert my own custom link, im not really sure what the problem is anymore. Crying or Very sad and yes photobucket works just not for ico files, which i guess isnt an issue anyways.

:/ I think its 18x19 and here is the direct link off photobucket: http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g207/theblackgrl/Easter_egg.png , i really dont know what im doing wrong, can some1 provide me with a direct link of a custom favicon so i can try it ? Because none of mine are working. I can try testing a random link just to see if anything works. I also refresh my forum and my admin panel and it doesnt show up.

Thats what you get with a favicon..it shows on your bar at the top of the browser plus can also be added to your bookmark or favourites as a shortcut



For some reason only ico files show for Internet explorer... if you use mozella firefox then other formats of favicon show eg gif and png
