It appears that favicon.ico there is actually a folder as evidenced by hxxp://www.libelcom.com/community/favicon.ico/ and indeed the icon appears to be hxxp://www.libelcom.com/community/favicon.ico/34-favicon.ico

You need to move that to become hxxp://www.libelcom.com/favicon.ico
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Well, http://www.libelcom.com/ [nofollow] is my main website, but I moved the favicon.ico to that URL anyway. But after moving it, restarting my pc (twice!) and have been waiting for almost 4 hours now, there is still no favicon on my forum :'(

Other idea's?

That's because it wasn't done correctly.

The actual image is currently visible at hxxp://www.libelcom.com/favicon.ico/34-favicon.ico

You need to move that 34-favicon.ico file up a level, delete the favicon.ico folder, then rename 34-favicon.ico to favicon.ico.

I think you could make this more simple for the noobs cause I had alot of trouble figuring out this tut. Here is how I added my favicon.

1. Download the mod. http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=702

2. Follow Method #1 - Adding the calls to your template.

3. Make your favicon and upload it to a image hosting site.

4. Configuration>Themes and Layout>Themes and Settings>Pick your Theme>Theme Options and Preferences> Favicon Image URL: Add your image address from hosting site. Done!

As I say on the first post i´ve made. Before installing it says that it have found errors. So normaly we shouldn´t install.

But I´ve decided to get the risk and installed anyway. And it work. No problem.

RC3+Actuaism Theme, work don´t worry about it. :D

Simple way to  Add a favicon:

Most browsers search by default for favicon.ico in the root folder of the website / blog the access. So it’s enough to place your favicon.ico  in the root folder without adding additional code and the favicon will be displayed. However the code below should be used, especially if the favicon is not located in the root folder.

Enjoy!  ;D

Hello, is there a current mod to add favicon? I get the statement that the one stated here is outmoded.

What version of SMF? The mod should still work for you if you are on the 2.0.* branch. If there are error shown during the installation, the mod's page explains how to add the small bits of code manually.

Try simply uploading your favicon.ico file to your forum's root folder. Most modern browsers will soon pick it up and start using it.

Except for older versions of IE... which is why I'm planning on implementing this manually as soon as I have the time.
