By adding a short amount of code to wikipage.zpt favicons would be displayed at least with mozilla (does not work with internet explorer for me).


 <link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="favicon"
 tal:condition="here/favicon|nothing" />

just after:


works for me.

questions --Simon Michael, 2003/05/14 16:26 GMT
Thanks - I actually had saved the same code snippet (from Mailman) for use later.

My favicon questions: Is there any disadvantage to using this everywhere ? When should this or a site icon (/favicon.ico) be preferred ? Is there some useful way we could use both ? What kind of zope object will favicon have to be - a File containing an .ico ? Should this default to the zwiki icon ? Or the current wiki logo ? How do I get rid of the blue background that appears in's current favicon ?

there is no disadvantage to using this (except it takes some server-processing and a few bytes).

Use /favicon.ico for lame IE 5.5 (and later?) clients that just assume the favicon is located there.

Using both is fine. Just place the favicon.ico in the root of the webserver

I think using the microsoft name is the best to do so favicon.ico instead of just favicon.

I used to remove the green colour. You can find it on


better --SimonMichael, 2003/05/30 12:41 GMT
Thanks Pieter! It appears to have a white background now (still not transparent like some I've seen).
