Yeah, but I don't think we ever got the favicon to work, did we?

I  can see it on the front end of the site - http://grogheads.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/favicon-1.ico

It shows up in the browser tab. Not in the bookmarks though. These things can be a PITA to get to display properly.

I see it on the <start encryption>home page</end encryption>. Don't see it on the forums.

I did a little research on this and the favicon on the front end is working correctly - http://grogheads.com. If you are not seeing it in your bookmarks, you may have to delete the bookmark and then re-bookmark the site.

There is no favicon for the forums that I am aware of (didn't see anything in the page source). The forums and the rest of the site are two completely different platforms. I have no idea what the forum software allows for favicons.

That's OK, I think I've just found a favicon customiser addon for Firefox, so I'll grab one of bbmike's and use it for the forum. :)

Here you go.

It's a little idiosyncratic but it works fine.  There's a gallery of stock images to use as favicons.  If you want to use a custom icon, you have to click the addon's icon in the Firefox menu, then "open user images folder in profile", then dump your custom icons in there.  Then after restarting Firefox you can again click the addon's icon and select "set bookmarks favicon images" followed by the bookmark you want to edit, then finally select your image.

bbmike's favicons are in this thread.
