What is a Favicon? A favicon is short for "favorites icon" or a page icon. A favicon is an icon that is associated with a particular website or webpage. Web browsers that support favicons might display them next to the site's name, in the bookmarks list, next to the title of the webpage, in a tab if tabbing is allowed, or also in the browser's URL navigation bar. This all depends on the type of web browser your are using.

How do I make a Favicon? Favicons have to be in .ico file format, so you will need to make a .ico file
  1. Create an image that is 16x16 pixels in size. It's small, but so is the actual size of your favicon. 32x32 should also work, but it will be scaled down to 16x16 in the file type conversion.
  2. Save your image with any desired name. It should be in .gif or .jpg format
  3. Go to this website

    and use the tool there to browse for your image, then click the "generate Favicon.ico" button to have your image converted to a .ico file
  4. Upload your .ico file to the internet
    • Many free image hosting sites do not support .ico files
    • If your image hosting site does not support .ico files, try making an account with

      You should be able to upload your .ico file there

  5. Copy the URL to your uploaded .ico file
  6. Go to your Admin Control Panel on your forum
  7. Go to the "ForumUp Theme" under your styles admin section
  8. Paste your favicon.ico file into the Faviocon Url field and click the "Change FAVICON" button


You should now have a brand new favicon associated with your forum!

Note: The favicon does not show up on Internet Explorer (IE) up to and including IE version 6.0. It does show in the new Beta Version of Internet Explorer.
