It will take some time for browser to cache your website.
Try clearing your browser cache!

Does Joomla expose any settings for changing the logo and favicon? Many CMS do, and most of those CMS don’t let you change the logo simply by uploading a file to a folder.


#5

@UnknownLolz yes. time to time but its same. not working.
@Admin Does Joomla expose any settings for changing the logo and favicon? i dont know. how to see it. im newbie. :slight_smile:
yeah. most of CMS don’t change the logo simply by uploading a file to a folder. i try every time but its same. What should I do?. i think i must change to wordpress. for easy.

I’m not a Joomla expert myself. But it can’t hurt to click around the settings screens to see if it’s something you can configure.

hello @abanggalau
oh this is my 300th post :o

@Admin But it can’t hurt to click around the settings screens to see if it’s something you can configure. I can not find it. or there may be no setting for it. or maybe the default joomla template cannot be replaced. the only way with htdocs-templates-protostar. or htdocs-mores. but its same. not working. its ok.
@OxyDac yeah. i follow step by step but no working. its ok.
(All) I enjoy building my little website. sorry to disturb your with this problem. im from indonesian. my english speak little bad. nice to meet your. tyvm for helping.

@abanggalau

your browser is deifnitively cached favicon.ico

In addition, you must be clear when you are logged in as an admin
your joomla uses a different template and favicon.ico
(it use isis and hathor style for admin view)

while visitors see the protostar style/template

how to change favicon.ico if active style is protostar

P.S. first part is just for logo img

after that…
try some other browser/device
who has never visited your site
(I must kill browser and clean cache to see new favicon.ico)
also do not be logged in as an admin when viewed!
uses this link directly http://ag69.ml/

@OxyDac i ever try with xampp. but my windows block some programs from xampp. i no know why. maybe a antivirus or no support on my windows or other. so i cannot instal xampp. so only with infinityfree and web admin.
ok I will try with ampps. tyvm boss :slight_smile:


#11

@abanggalau
forget about ampps
it’s just an example to see where to change your favicon!

I did it on my pc just to record video for you okay?

you go to joomla and find all here on infinityfree

@Admin @OxyDac how about free ssl? i found on github. free domain maybe freenom to infinityfree and,

You can’t get a free ssl from LE if you use file verification.
You must use dns txt verification to get your ssl.

You can just change your name servers to Cloudflare or your domain name provider and add a DNS txt record.

@abanggalau
There is also a side-effect that will happen if you use Cloudflare,
You can’t receive email.
