Cannot change favicon--Help!

Post by allorac » Sun Mar 08, 2015 12:45 am

I'm fairly new to Joomla and have been plugging away successfully at customizing my template. HOWEVER--for the life of me I can't seem to be able to change my favicon! I'm uploaded the new image to the media manager without any results.

I would try via FTP...but I'm not sure how to set up the ftp settings for my site.

Any ideas?! I know this is probably just my ignorance and only being a beginner....but I'm stumped. :/ Any ideas would be appreciated--and here's the demo version of the site I'm working on if it helps:

You have to upload your favicon here:

/templates/theme1196/favicon.ico

Also, note that (some versions of) FireFox caches the old favicon so if you want to check the latest favicon it's better to check your website using Chrome.

Upload it how? I uploaded it through the media manager and tested it in chrome and firefox--nothing.

Hi,

try to upload the file favicon.ico in Root folder or go to Template manager and check your template configuration. Maybe template have setting for changing favicon.
