Manual Install Instructions for SMF


This modification adds the header tags necessary to enable display of a favicon.ico icon on your site. The favicon.ico is a small 16x16 pixel image that appears in the URL bar in some browsers and is shown in the bookmarks in most browsers. Your icon must be named favicon.ico and should be placed in your website root directory.

Many browsers detect these icons automatically. This modification adds two meta tags to the head section of your forum's pages to aid the browsers that do not auto-detect.

Revision history

Version 1.3 (Mar. 11, 2016) Revised to use integration hooks, no files are edited. This version should be compatible with all SMF 2.0 versions and probably with SMF 2.1 too. SMF 2.0 users should try this version first.

Version 1.2 (Mar. 3, 2016) Compatible with later SMF 2.0.x versions, tested on 2.0.11.

Version 1.1 (Dec. 9, 2009) Verified compatible with SMF 2.0 RC2 and works with both default/curve and core themes. It's likely to work on all SMF versions but other themes may require manual modification.

Version 1.0 (Aug. 27, 2008) original release.
