Favicon Anonymous 04/08/2019 (Mon) 02:51:38 No. 600
Is there a global setting to set a favicon or should I manually edit it in every file?
Upload it to mongodb using mongofiles to /favicon.ico.

From penumbra's readme:
>mongofiles -h localhost -d {dbName} -p 27017 -l {/path/to/yourfavicon} put /favicon.ico
is there a recommended size?
can we use emoji for a favicon
or a .png instead of .ico
I don't know, that's up to browsers. You can upload any file to mongo and it will be served as is.
>can upload any file to mongo and it will be served as is
i want to use a png but isn't the engine looking for favicon.ico cos i see
> "GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1" 404 464
in the error log
Is not the engine looking for it, is the browser.
>I don't know, that's up to browsers.
long story short
> png put png doesn't show
> png put ico does show
> ico put ico does show
mystery solved
its not going to work if the file is not a .ico. its what the browser always looks for and you get those errors because it cant find a .ico file
idk tested in ff n chrom, werkd
