Address Bar Icons


Active member
Good afternoon,

I am curious as to how to put an icon at the far left side of the url address bar. An example of what I am talking about is the xF icon on both the tab and url address bar.

You mean a favicon.

Just upload a favicon.ico file to your webroot or overwrite the one in the styles\default\xenforo directory.

Just a little extra information,
Because the first time I installed xF, there were no favicons in the forum's page source,

If Brogan's advice did not work ( favicon not showing in page source ) , then you can manually add it Via templates :

Admin Control Panel =>Appearance => Templates => Choose Style => PAGE_CONTAINER => Edit

Add this between your HEAD tags :

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="IMAGE" />
Of course, replace the text, "IMAGE" , with your favicon.ico file and save the template and check to see if you see the favicon on your forum.
