    Hello Gang!

    I changed the favicon for my forum a while ago but I was wonder how to change the image that is showing up when I share my ULR on facebook, and on Safari on the iPhone bookmarks. I feel like maybe this isn't what you would call a favicon as the favicon I'm using I made at one of those 'favicon image converting websites' and it's super small? These icons are much larger. I'm sorry for probably explaining myself horribly. Do you know how to change these images?

    Many Thanks!

    @Brogan! That is one heck of a FAQ. If it's not too much trouble can you point me to the right section. I don't have the language down yet so I'm not sure what I'm looking for.

    Search for "facebook".

    Thank you for trying to help me! I'm not sure if that is a Windows thing but it doesn't seem to work for me. That would be a huge help though.

    root /styles/ default/ xenforo/ logo.og.png I'm pretty sure that is it. It looks like the Facebook servers take a while to update so I'm not sure it did the trick. We'll see!:whistle:

    logo.og.png is what you are looking for. It must be 200px x 200px and located normally in your /styles/default/xenforo directory (if using the stock style). If using a custom style it will be in that style directory.

    I see you found it. :D

    @Brogan's resources (FAQ, etc) are usually the go-to place to look first. If you can't find it there, odds are he hasn't answered it before. :p
