 Make your own favicon for your forum
Attachment:

Changing favicon icon is in fact very easy… but involves a lot of work.

First of all you will need a file host site, which allows ico files to be hosted.

A .ico file is in fact an image file, but not all host sites allows it to be uploaded.

You can google for a good one, but I think you can use for example: http://www.DivShare.com or

http://www.50megs.com

Then you can do your own favicon using these sites: http://www.favicon.cc or
http://www.degraeve.com/favicon

or another way, converting an image file into a .ico file with the help of some software, for example: InconWorshop


After making the favicon file you will upload it into the host site I indicated before (or another site if you wish).

Then copy the URL of the hosted ico file , you will need it forward.

Then, back to you forum admin panel…

1 – create a BBCode for your favicon:

BBCode
Code:
[Favicon][/Favicon]



Html

Code:
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://YOUR ICO FILE URL" type="image/x-icon" />


2 – put the tags : [Favicon][/Favicon] in the forum description --> submit… (see an example) Sorry but it´s in portuguese.

3 – paste the tags [Favicon][/Favicon] into a main forum, in the rules and description area (choose one) --> submit… (in the main page of your forum, not in the portal, it´s very important)

4- paste the tags again, but this time into the rules location of all the forums and sub-forums you have --> submit.. (see it at the Portuguese support)

DONE… Just see it working! Isn’t it great?

This great job was made by “facha”, an administrator of the Portuguese support forum, also a user of this forum…

Any question, just ask facha, or myself in this topic.

Tutorial edited by me.

Hope you’ll enjoy it.

Place it in the "Description" area, and in the "Rules" area ;)

It should do it =)

Sorry my friend, I apologize cause I forgot to mention where you should put the tags.

What I meant by “main forum” was: a forum existing in the main page (principal page) of your forum.

So, you just have to choose one, and paste the tags into the rules area and the description, as Trebbien says
