favicon location?

under advanced customization in the template design section, i can select 'show favicon'. There is a dropdown menu referencing images with the instruction Select from images uploaded in Templates > Upload Images.  i cannot find /templates/upload images.  where should the directory be?

Re: favicon location?

Hover over the Templates Menu item and you'll see a fly-out with the Uploaded Images link. Upload images from that page.

Re: favicon location?

Did you also go to the page template > Advanced Customization > Favicon and set Display Favicon to On?

Re: favicon location?

Thanks.  As Rod asked, did you enable Favicons in the page template designer?

Looks like he's figured it out. I see a favicon when I visit the link.

Re: favicon location?

I have enabled the Favicons under Advanced Customization in Templates/Backlight Standard Page/Design too, but I cannot find any folder named Templates>Upload Images.

???

Re: favicon location?

Not a folder. In Backlight's menu, look for Designer => Templates => Upload Images.

Re: favicon location?

I'm also using an favicon with the .ico extension. Works fine for me.
Is it appearing in the list on your Uploaded Images page?

Can you post a link to your Backlight site?

Re: favicon location?

Is it a 32px favicon? Have you tried a 16px favicon?

Is it appearing in the list on your Uploaded Images page?

Re: favicon location?

i got it to work.  though safari on mac os 10.11 does not display the favicon in the address bar any longer.  only if you click in the address bar (or bookmark a site).  this is not a backlight issue, it is just the way safari displays it now.

Re: favicon location?

I can now approve this. It works only if you click in the adress bar. Both 16 and 32 pix. But not on IOS.

Re: favicon location?

The favicon is included into the page in the standard fashion, in accordance with HTML5 specifications. How or whether individual browsers choose to make use of the item is beyond our control.
