Put the favicon.ico file in the root of your installation.

That's it.

That will work for only firefox.

In order to get it to work for Internet Explorer, you have to play a
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico">
in the <head> tags of your webpage.

NOW, where's the rub: Where do you do this in ravennuke?

I'd like to know as well.

Check your theme files. Some themes override the favicon with a themed favicon...

Put it at the bottom of your includes/meta.php file. Either after the php closing tag like posted above, or before the php closing tag like this:

<link rel=\"shortcut icon\" href=\"favicon.ico\">

Yes, a theme one will automatically add the correct code

It needs to be placed in
themes/YOURTHEME/images/

Change this:
Code:
<LINK REL="ICON" HREF="http://www.worldofrsa.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">


to this:
Code:
<LINK REL="shortcut icon" HREF="http://www.worldofrsa.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

If I remember right, the favicon doesn't work like it is supposed to in IE6. I am running the beta IE7 and they show up like they are supposed to.

I found out that IE only displays the favicon after the site is bookmarked.

I've been playing with the favicon, And Heres some input I'd like to know if anyone has found:

If you put the favivon.ico in the nuke dir, It will add it whether or not the code is there.
But only for the page you bookmark,

For example if I bookmark index.php, It wont show on modules.php anything.

I'd like to see it stay up there whether or not its added to the favorites and see it travel throughout the site. GRRRRRRRRRR.

Ill even be ok with making it so that the site keeps the same url no matter what page they are on, this will undoubtedly mess google tap up but any ideas?

I dont know if there is a way, Ive been googling for about 4 hours on it.

It is indeed a major pain in the akaching!, that I've been confronted with again and again whenever trying to make a site for myself.

That being said, it is a small detail that can seperate your site from being some amateur piece of work to having that professional touch.

Have you checked other sites to see if the favicon shows on none bookmarked pages?
There source might might give you a clue.

The simplest thing to do is put favicon.ico in your root directory. I believe that's the only place it will work with IE. You can modify your theme to get it there also, but I believe Firefox / Mozilla will default there, too.

A favicon.ico file is so small, why not use it in any directory your site's visitors go to? I've copied the favicon.ico for the sites I admin to every directory users might have access to. Worked for me.

I've been determined to get my favicon to work in both Firefox and IE6.

It was easy to do in Firefox, just added favicon.ico to the root and bang, but IE was a bit more difficult.

I added the following to the header.php:
Code:
echo '<link rel="shortcut icon" HREF="http://www.mydomain.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">'."\n";


This seems to work fine for me, but what I did learn is not to create your image as a .bmp and then change the extension to .ico . I know everyone is going to tell me that it was obvious, but I thought it would work at the time and it did display correctly in Firefox. In the end I used Easy Icon Maker and bang it now works in IE.

To check your favicon is going to work in IE try accessing it directly by going to: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! If you get the red x then it won't work.

Well done!!
Now for your next task.
See if you can get it working from meta.php instead
