Before I raise this as a bug (favicon)


Recommended Posts

IPS includes the option to add your favicon, share & application image from within the ACP. No need to have the favicon uploaded to html directory.

So we uploaded our favicon, we added our share image and we added our application image.


However, upon reloading the forum, the favicon had changed from what we had in our html directory and had now uploaded via the ACP. The favicon in acp, remains as the correct favicon (caches cleared, refreshed etc.).


The one on the left is wrong, it's taken this from applications, I removed the share image & favicon remained incorrect. I removed the application image and our favicon returned. 


Is this just me and I'm doing something wrong or is this a repeatable issue by others and should be raised as a bug?

This is interesting and seems related. You could try editing the HTML templates to move the favicon loading after the manifest file is loaded to see if this resolves the issue possibly.

Thank's, I've raised it as a bug with IPSFocus @Ehren

Well, my recommendation if you're comfortable testing was to move the favicon as suggested in the template to see if this resolves your issue first, so we know if this is legitimately something we can just move around and will resolve the problem. But if you're not comfortable performing that test, yes please feel free to submit a ticket and someone will take a look. Point back to this topic in your ticket.

Thanks @bfarber

Changed in core/global/global template

        {template="favico" app="core" group="global" location="front" params=""}
		{template="includeMeta" app="core" group="global" location="global" params=""}
		{template="includeCSS" app="core" group="global" location="global" params=""}
		{template="js_head" app="core" group="global" location="global" params=""}
		{template="includeJS" if="theme.js_include != 'footer'" app="core" group="global" location="global" params=""}

I'm not sure why, but some time ago there was something that bothered me with an ACP favicon. Even then I moved my favicon into a root and I have no problem with this icon.
But now I do not remember what was the reason - it was not soon.
