After upgrading to 7.6 my custom favicon is gone. I uploaded it to the server but it hasn't changed. Can someone tell me how to or where to upload my custom favicon? Thanks

The favicon should be uploaded into your main UBB folder IE: http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/favicon.ico

actually, the favicon.ico is taken from the /images/general/STYLE/favicon.ico, so it changes depending upon which style is used.

if you have multiple styles, then have a copy of YOUR favicon.ico in each one that is enabled

from header.tpl:

Code
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="{$config.BASE_URL}/images/{$style_array.general}/favicon.ico">


by putting it into the forum dir or even the site root, it will look to 'work' because browsers are forgiving and hunt around for one in those directories, when one isn't in the specified directory.
