i added favicon in header template but it is not displaying i also try with hard refresh.
i added the below codes.
<link rel="icon" type="image/ico"<a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/images/favicon.ico">
favicon should be placed on the root folder not inside the images folder...
I added favicon in root now i make setting
<link rel="icon" type="image/ico"<a href="/favicon.ico">
Is this right
just place the icon on the root folder and hard refresh the page a couple of times. if you don't see it, clear the cache and refresh again. nothing else needed.
not working in my opera browser
What's your forum URL?

For example the favicon used here is located at:
Notice that this is in the root directory and that no link tags are needed.

Anyway you can use your method with the link tag, however your problem is probably due to you adding "<a" in the middle of the tag: <link rel="icon" type="image/ico"<a href="/favicon.ico">
You should really use:
<link rel="icon" type="image/ico" href="/favicon.ico">
Or if you are putting your favicon.ico file in your MyBB images directory use:
<link rel="icon" type="image/ico" href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/images/favicon.ico">
Its working now thanks Smile
