    I have my favicon uploaded to the root, and on my old theme it displays fine. When I switched to my new default skin the xenforo favicon displays, odd thing is when I log onto the ACP my OLD favicon which I want to use shows up.

    Any idea how I can get my old favicon to show up on my new theme?

    Url is www.enixorigin.com/forum

    I also tried Jake's method.

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html id="XenForo" class="Public {xen:if {$visitor.user_id}, 'LoggedIn', 'LoggedOut'}">
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <xen:if is="{$requestPaths.fullBasePath}"><base href="{$requestPaths.fullBasePath}" /></xen:if>
    <title><xen:if is="{$title}">{xen:raw $title} | {$xenOptions.boardTitle}<xen:else />{$xenOptions.boardTitle}</xen:if></title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css.php?css=xenforo,form,public&amp;style={xen:urlencode $_styleId}&amp;d={$visitorStyle.last_modified_date}" />
    <xen:include template="google_analytics" />
    <xen:include template="page_container_js_head" />
    <xen:if is="{$pageDescription.content} AND !{$pageDescription.skipmeta} AND !{$head.description}"><meta name="description" content="{xen:string wordTrim, {xen:helper stripHtml, {xen:raw $pageDescription.content}}, 200}" /></xen:if>
    <xen:if is="{$head}"><xen:foreach loop="$head" value="$headElement">{xen:raw $headElement}</xen:foreach></xen:if>

    It will be cached in your browser.

    I see the same favicon in both styles.

    Theme shouldn't matter with a favicon as long as it's on the root. I can see one, are you sure it's not a caching issue? I see this:

    That is really really odd, anything I can do on my part for the cache? Some of my members don't see it at well.

    Force clear your browser cache.
    Advise your members to do the same.

    Just cleared my cache, as a guest my preferred favicon is displayed, but when I logged in it goes back to xenforo one.

    It's just a browser caching issue.
    Other than force clearing all of your browser cache and history, there is nothing else you can do.

    favicons typically have really long cache times (1 year?) I've sometimes had to wait, restart apache, F5 browser cache clear, browser delete all, etc before it changed. This was 10 years ago though as mine hasn't changed since then.
