  • [Forum] Favicon is changed on Forum but not in Forum Admin Panel

    I managed to change the Favicon on the Vbulletin 4.1.7 forum home page at:
    But the Favicon in the admin panel is still the original Vbulletin favicon.
    I would like to change it also, to make it less confusing where my forum's admin panel is in my tabs, versus where the Vbulletin support forum is, as I usually have many pages of both them open in my tabs. So does anyone know how to change the favicon in the Admin panel, which is this basic URL,
    Thank you.

    So your admin panel has a different url than the rest of your site? You need to upload the favicon into the root of that server directory.

    Also, sometimes it takes a while for the favicon to show up in your browser. Are you sure you aren't just seeing the cached favicon?

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

      The Admin CP doesn't use the value set in the stylevar. To change the Admin CP favicon you need to overwrite the existing file favicon.ico in the root with your own favicon.ico file. It MUST be called favicon.ico.

      It may still take some time for your cache to clear after making this change,

        Thank you both. It doesn't appear to be a cache problem. It does appear to be what BirdOPrey5 describes above. Apparently, I will have to do the Favicon that way, instead of just changing it in stylevars, which is what I did.
