    I've changed the favicon for my main site using the PAGE_CONTAINER, but I tried doing the same for the admin templates and also changing it in the PAGE_CONTAINER, but for some reason, when I'm not logged into the panel, the favicon doesn't show, but when I log in, it appears.

    You don't need to do anything to get a favicon to show.
    Just upload one to your web root.

    Okay, thank you. Although the favicon I uploaded is in the root, and it does not show with out the HTML code within the PAGE_CONTAINER template.

    Although you still need to add one code correct?

    I just checked and my .ico file is in the web root, but you still in to add the "Shortcut link rel" code to the PAGE_CONTAINER template, and that's what I've done.

    Although, my actual question is how come it is not showing it when I go to the AdminCP. I've put that same code in the admin PAGE_CONTAINER, and it only shows the favicon when I'm logged into the admin panel.

    Is your favicon named 'favicon.ico' ?

    No need for any extra code as Brogan said.

    It needs to be named 'favicon.ico' exactly?

    Yes..

    Remove the code you added. Name it favicon.ico and upload it.

    Now, for some reason it is not showing and I did everything above.

    It will be due to browser caching.
