Update the favicon

Posted by Taylor the Chosen One of Fire on Nov 17 2012 - 12:50 PM

I notice that the current favicon, while compliant with modern size standards, is somewhat...iffy. Mainly, the largest size has awkward aliasing, and the gears are the wrong color. Plus, the tiniest size could use transparency

Thanks to BCboy and X-Icon editor, I was able to do such a thing myself. I'd post it here if attachments were possible

What are you talking about?

Well, for the 'smallest size' of the favicon, I can confirm it; it's white around the edges, instead of having transparency. You an tell it in stuff like Firefox on XP.

I can't see any of the larger sizes, however, they are used for things like, IIRC, apps on mobiles phones or so. I don't personally have anything that really uses the larger favicons, or at least haven't run into a situation where I could, so I don't know much about the bigger versions.

I have made a brand new, pretty (I hope) favicon, and uploaded it. I am hoping it's just cached though, because I'm not seeing the new one. If anyone sees one with transparency let me know.

I see it on the homepage, but not the forums

Visiting the following two urls should refresh the favicon that is seen when visiting the site.

http://www.bzpower.c...ard/favicon.ico
http://www.bzpower.com/favicon.ico

However, the favicons in bookmarks and history may still stay the same - at least, this is the case in Firefox. These will probably refresh over time. But if you want to force refresh them immediately, I believe there are some addons that can be installed to do this.

Works like a charm here

Kovolta's link works. Well, for the forums; there's still a white border thing around the favicon on the homepage, though. I'm sure that'll go away with time, though. =)

You must visit both links. One is for the home page, and one is for the forums.

Hmm... Oh, I see. I had to cache refresh the second link. It seemed to work; but it's still showing with a border on the homepage... 0_o Ah well... I'm sure it's just my computer storing it, like why the bookmarks don't update right away.

Excellent! Thanks guys.
