Post by watercat1000 » Mon Jan 30, 2023 1:37 am

I have try and look into the code but i can not understand why the favicon i created is keep being replace with default one. Even following the "plugin" doesn't change the favicon. Sorry if it's clear to everyone but i can't find answers to it.

Hello watercat1000,

welcome aboard. That's strange that the favicon is not displayed.

Replace the default ICO in the directory flatpress/fp-plugins/favicon/imgs/
Your file *must* be named favicon.ico and be a ICO file (not a renamed png, jpg, gif, etc...).

Check the file and access rights for all files if necessary.
The default access right for Apache is "www-root". Set all files and directories of FlatPress to 775 or 777.

With best regards

possibly it's your local browser caching the old favicon.
Does the icon change after "hard" reloading your blog with Ctrl+F5?

All the best,
