hi-

i was wondering how i can change the default favicon to something else?
what file format should it be saved in?
where is the original file located?
do i simply delete original and replace with mine, and use same name?

thanks...

Hello,

You just need to remove and replace the favicon.ico file on the server with your own icon file using the favicon.ico name.

i deleted the existing favicon.ico file in incline templates and replaced with my favicon.ico file, but my new icon is not popping up.
did i insert in the wrong location?

cleared cache on ff and chrome, but still coming up as old s5 logo.
please advise.

Hello,

You may need to clear some /tmp browser files on the computer you are using. If you fully replaced the favicon.ico file and it appears that way on the server files it means the browser is pulling from an old cache of the site. There are tutorials online that explain how to clear each different browser cache completely.
