    You need to clear your browser cache in order for a new FavIcon to appear in the tabs drawn by the browser. If you don't clear the cache, it will appear for users over time. Usually takes about 2 weeks.

    Hello,

    On vBulletin 5.5.5 I uploaded my custom icon and changed the setting in Styles & Templates. The icon on the taskbar changed as expected. However when I click a photo in a post and a new windows opens it does not use my new icon. Any idea how to make it use it?

    Please can you explain where and how to upload the favicon? I was able to locate the style editor where i point to it, but not sure how to access the imagepaths folder to upload the favicon. Thanks!
    On vBulletin Cloud, you can only upload files using the vBCloud File Manager in your AdminCP. Open the AdminCP and select it from the left hand navigation.

    Page name:
    That is done in the frontend via Site Builder. Activate it (toggle "Edit Site: ON") and click on "Navigation Bar". Then enter a new "Navigation Item Name" for the Forums tab (click on the little pencil icon).

    There is no setting to remove it from that page. I would guess you would need to edit the template and remove it, or put a condition around it, depending on exactly what you wanted. If you need help with that, you should ask over on vbulletin.org, the modification site.

    For example, on this very page it is:

    You can change the first part (on some sections) by renaming the page (e.g. from "Forums" to "Board"). This is what I described above. The second part is your actual board name, which you can change under "AdminCP > Settings > Options > Site Name / URL / Contact Details > Forum Name".
    I tried that but it doesn't change the actual page name on the browser. it just changes the tab. here is an image of what exactly i need to change if it helps.

    thanks for your response!

    thank you!

    although what i actually meant by the page name,,, the name that shows up on the actual browser itself beside the favicon.
