This extension saved me a lot of time... I use Gantry framework, and worked easy, i didn´t even need to resize the Favicon. Works on Chrome, Firefox und IE...
Sorry about my english, hope is not a disaster...

If you need basic favicon functionality, this is the extension to use.

Install and have working in 5 minutes or less.

I particularly like the way you can upload a decent size graphics image, and all the tedious work of creating the 16x16 favico is done for you.

Many thanks for a great piece of extension design.

I have been coding and working with websites for years. Never once have I ever come close to the masterful design of this component. All you have to do is install it, open the component, upload a picture, and clear the cache! Now that I use this, I look back and laugh at myself when I was spending hours creating a .ico document, hunting down to find the directory... All that's over, and it is thanks to this brilliant extension!

I had a Joomla 1.5 site with a badly customized Yoo Theme template that was stubbornly refusing to display the favicon no matter what I did. (Just how long would you spend trying to sort something like this out?)

So I installed this, FTP-ed the image to the required folder and the plugin did the rest!

Thank you!

Review title says it all, but also be clear this component does a fine job of taking most any size image (I've thrown at it yet anyway) and it makes it into one of those teeny weeny little pics for the fav location/spot.
The perfect component for the job it does and it does not require any other add-on frameworks or such either to work.
Thumbs-up!!

too bad transparency is not supported for joomla 1.5. It's great that it is supported for 1.6 though

I like this little extension as I always create and add tailored favicon's to the sites I am developing.

Couple of wishes though:

1) It would be good if one could add favicon to the admin (backend) templates aswell as the frontend templates.

2) Would be great to see what the "current" favicon is on a template. (while in the component in the Joomla backend)

Other than that it does exacly what is says and will definitely be of benefit to many fellow Joomla users.

I'm new to Joomla! and website design in general. I followed a youtube video earlier on how to make a favicon and it didnt work. I installed this just now, followed the directions and had one right away!

If you want your site to have a favicon, use this and it'll have one in minutes! :)
