Favicon.ico
Hi there,

I am creating a website with MODx Revolution. But how do I get my favicon.ico to work? With System Settings -> Back-end Manager I found the Manager Favicon URL option. I work with a subdomain and I putted my favicon.ico in "C:\domains\DOMAIN.nl/subdomains/SUBDOMAIN/wwwroot/manager/favicon.ico". But if I put this link in the system settings it won't work. Do you know what to put there instead? Because I can't find it anywhere on the internet.

Thanks a lot!

I use: MODx Revolution 2.1.3-pl (traditional)

RE: Favicon.ico
Are you just looking to have the favicon for the whole site or just for the manager?

Well, only for the subdomain where my MODx is at. So for the whole website that's on my subdomain. You get it?

RE: Favicon.ico
In the template head, you need to add the link tag to point to wherever your favicon image is located. So inside the < head> section add something like:

<link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="PATH_TO_IMAGE.ico" />

I generally find it less confusing to put the favicon image file in the root of the site, in which case you'd have

<link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="favicon.ico" />

Let me know if this works

RE: Favicon.ico
Thanks a lot!

I have a chunk called css wich I call on my Template like this:

<head>
[[$css]]
</head>

The css chunk containes this:

<title>[[++site_name]] | [[*pagetitle]]</title>
<base href="[[++site_url]]" />

<link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="favicon.ico" />

<style>
... etc.

Am I doing that right? I don't see the icon yet, but it can take a while doesn't it?

It worked!! Thanks a lot! I think you're doin a great job Mary. I also had a lot of help with your video tutorials.

I'm creating a dutch "How To" for MODx myself. Because all the stuff at rtfm.modx.com are really hard to get sometimes. So I set up a document in notepad++ and adding more and more chapters to it with a step by step explanation how to create a website with MODx.

Thanks again!
