favicon ?

Is it possible to add a favicon to ca site?

Don't know if this matters, but my CA is on a server on my lan, reverse-proxied by my public apache web server.

I tryed to add the lines

<link href="<?php print $this->request->getThemeUrlPath(); ?>/css/favicon.ico" rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" />
<link href="<?php print $this->request->getThemeUrlPath(); ?>/css/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" />

to themes/default/views/system/login_html.php, and login page now has the correct favicon, but all other pages do not... Should I add the new lines to all of my views???


  • You need to add it to themes/default/views/pageFormat/pageHeader.php as well. The login and logout views happen to be special self-contained views, with full HTML. Everything else uses pageHeader.php to generate the <head>
  • Thanks, it worked!
    Though I would expect I had do make the change to my theme's file ("themes/ks/views/pageFormat/pageHeader.php"), but I had to make it to "default" theme...
  • i tried to follow this answer from 2011 but it does not appear to be working - is there an updated way to put in a custom favicon?
  • Where are you putting your favicon file? This answer is for the old Pawtucket implementation. The path you use now is going to be different.

    You might want to try putting the favicon.ico file in the themes/<your theme name here>/assets/pawtucket/css directory of your installation and then put this in pageHeader.php:

    <link href="<?php print $this->request->getThemeUrlPath(); ?>/assets/pawtucket/css/favicon.ico" rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" />
