- Joomla!1.5, 2.5, 3 (stable or any later version).
- PHP 4.4.1 (or any later version) with GD library (graphics library for thumbnails creation).
Since version 2 (Joomla! 1.7) Favicon can have transparent background
Phoca Favicon and Joomla! 1.7 Demo:
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.
So I installed this, FTP-ed the image to the required folder and the plugin did the rest!
The perfect component for the job it does and it does not require any other add-on frameworks or such either to work.
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.
If you want your site to have a favicon, use this and it'll have one in minutes! :)
It should only be considered while preparing the original image file, that the favicon.ico will only be 16x16 pixel size. In case the original image would have the same ratio, than the result should be fine.
Thank you so much, it adds that extra bit of professionalism to the website.
