How to change the Joomla! 3.x favicon?

The favicon for Joomla! 1.5 templates is kept in the templates/template_name folder. The file is called favicon.ico and to change your favicon, it should be replaced with your new favicon file.

You can create a favicon manually on your computer or you can use an online favicon generator. Here are several such generators:

Dynamic Drive Generator

Graphics Guru Generator

1Favicon Generator

Once you create the favicon, upload it to templates/template_name and rename the file to favicon.ico, replacing the old one (it is recommended to keep a copy of the old favicon, just in case you wish to restore it at a later moment).

Clear up your browser’s cache and your Joomla! 3.x’s cache (if it is enabled) and reload your website. The new favicon will appear in your browser’s address bar.

If you have problems changing your Joomla! 3.x favicon yourself, ask your host for assistance.
