Favicon Administration

Post by Martin_Web » Fri May 10, 2024 12:34 pm

How do I change the favicon of the Joomla administrator area - NOT the frontend?

I have already googled, searched in forums, and I have placed a favicon.ico and .svg in:
/media/templates/administrator/atum/images/. and
/media/templates/administrator/cassiopeia/images/. and
/aministratior/templates/atum/images/. and
/aministratior/templates/atum/.

...and cleared caches.

no success.

Config:
DB mysql
DB version 8.0.32
PHP-Version 8.2.18
Webserver Apache
Joomla 4.4.4 Stable [ Pamoja ]

I have copied the three custom favorite icon files namely favicon.ico, joomla-favicon.svg, and joomla-favicon-pinned.svg to the directory /media/templates/administrator/atum/images/

AND

I could see the new favorite icon when I go to the administrator back-end.


Note:
I could mimic the same behavior when copied the three files mentioned to the directory /media/system/images/
I would not prefer doing this as these files may be overwritten by future releases of Joomla

That's it! I had no idea about joomla-favicon-pinned.svg and joomla-favicon.svg.

Solved!

thank you!
