I used to have an Icon like you do on this site for my site before switching to Nuke...I have been looking for the "where to put the info. I am guessing it's in the header but either I'm really Bleary eyed or just plain Blind ? Smack

How Do I get .ico to Show in Address Bar & Top tabs in Browser like above on your site ?

I my header.php is the code:
Code:


if (file_exists("themes/$ThemeSel/images/favicon.ico")) {
   echo "<link REL=\"shortcut icon\" HREF=\"themes/$ThemeSel/images/favicon.ico\" TYPE=\"image/x-icon\">\n";
    }


and the favicon.ico is in the folder:

themes/DeepBlue/images/favicon.ico


I use irfan view it´s a great tool for icons also Laughing

I have a weird issue with the favicon. I transferred ownership of a domain that used to be my primary. Now I have switched the primary to a different one. I went through the nuke config and changed the domain everywhere I can think of to the new one.

The transfer to the new owner was completed lastnight and now when I open my site in firefox the favicon shows the new domain owner's favicon next to my url when you go to my site. I'm at work which uses the old IE Sad still so I had someone else test IE and they tell me that they see the correct icon on their screen. So, it looks like firefox is the only one having this issue of some how picking up the new domain owner's icon.

What puzzles me is that all my other content on my site is showing up correctly. What the heck would make the icon change if I don't even have the guys favicon file in my Dir?

Do you have your favicon in the themes/your_theme/images folder?

Not sure it matters but I have mine there and also in mysite/root as well as theme/theme/

It could be a cache issue, maybe delete temp files?

horrorcode,

Thanks for the reply,

I found what it was, I had the following code in my header.php
Code:
echo '<link rel="shortcut icon" HREF="http://www.mysite.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">'."\n";


It was still set to the old domain.

Thank you for your ideas though Wink

As long as you have your own favicon in your theme folder (target folder), no problem at all.

For IE, it keeps heavy caches in your local machine. Therefore, try to clean out all caches from "Internet Option --> Delete All."

I experience this from time to time because always I move the folder for my developments.

By the way, for your favicon, most phpnuke employes the following code which is not recommended:

Code:


   if (file_exists("themes/$ThemeSel/images/favicon.ico")) {
      echo "<link REL=\"shortcut icon\" HREF=\"themes/$ThemeSel/images/favicon.ico\" TYPE=\"image/x-icon\">\n";
   }


This code is found in your <nuke-root>/header.php
Unfortunately, it might be wrong. Why?
reason 1: when you move, add, or delete your themes, your favicon will be gone together.
reason 2: to change your favicon, you should copy the same favicon to every theme/images folders. Think about you are running 20 mulitple themes in your site? It sounds like stupid.

So, the best place to save favicon and to read in your header.php, In my opinion, it is <nuke-root>/images/ folder.

For instance, make favicon folder under that directory as follows:

<nuke-root>/images/favicon

then change the code slightly.

Code:


   if (file_exists("images/favicons/YOUR-favicon.ico")) {
      echo "<link REL=\"shortcut icon\" HREF=\"images/favicons/YOUR-favicon.ico\" TYPE=\"image/x-icon\">\n";
   }


From this, you will make multiple favicons and you may change this code while inserting random display and selection. Then, your site will may have random favicons. But this is really bad trick because you know what the primary purpose of favicon.

Oh, by the way, handy favicon editor in web is here. You don't have to use indenpendently running favicon editor in your local machines.

I agree with alot of that, but, I like being able to have multiple favicons, one for each theme Smile

Better yet, we can satisfy both parties:

Code:


   if (file_exists('themes/' . $ThemeSel . '/images/favicon.ico')) {
      echo '<link rel="shortcut icon" href="themes/', $ThemeSel, '/images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />', "\n";
      } elseif (file_exists('images/favicons/favicon.ico')) {
            echo '<link rel="shortcut icon" href="images/favicons/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />', "\n";
      }

Edit: changed elseif to else...and back again..cant be else

So if its in the themes folder, display it, if not look for it in the images/favicon folder...

That's what I expected you to do.

I must admit, you did give me the idea Smile

What do you think about it though, is it worth the time to look for both?

Absolutely, that is worth!
Actually, I had used my favicon in that way.
