I am far too anal
« on: February 25, 2021, 01:39:38 pm »
Would it be possible to add the standard BYOAC icon to the forum? I like to have icons in my bookmarks (so very anal, I know). I have been trying to find out how to force one but have not had luck. I use Firefox for this site if anyone has ideas to force one instead.

I miss the days when Firefox would let you choose which icon you wanted to use for each bookmark. But I do agree with you. This site is just one of a few that shows up as a globe.

Here's some favicon info for Saint.

https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Favicon.ico
Quote
A favicon is the little image that is shown in a browser's bookmarks, address bar or tabs when displaying pages from a particular site. The default favicon is a file named favicon.ico and one is supplied with the SMF installation. The standard dimensions of 16x16 or 32x32 can be used depending on your needs.

Modern browsers will pick up that you have a favicon if it is placed on your site or forum root [main directory] without any code edits provided that the file is correctly named "favicon.ico".

Since modern browsers have image caching enabled by default, this could make the favicon.ico not show up in your browser until the cache is refreshed. This could take hours or days depending on the browser settings. Waiting a while for the image to show is a good idea before assuming that it did not work, since it is not shown as soon as it is uploaded.

Although if anyone wants to create a better 32x32 favicon.ico for the forum I'm all ears.

Still showing up as a globe for me. Even removed and re-bookmarked it. :(

edit: n/m. Force reloaded by CTRL+F5 and it's there now. :)

Noice! Now I only have 1 globe left. I don't think that one will be fixed ever though. :( Big corporation. Hard to get a hold of someone to ask them to fix it. :) Thanks Saint!
