How do I add my own favicon? (logo in address bar)
A favicon is the small icon image that you generally see toward the top of your web browser, either next to the web address of the website you're visiting in the address bar, or next to the website name in the browser tab for the website. In order to replace the PB icon that displays on the forum with one of your own, you'll first need to have a 16x16 .ico image; you can use an online converter like this one to convert a regular image to a .ico format.
Once you have a .ico image ready, visit your admin panel then navigate to Settings > Forum Settings, then scroll toward the bottom of the page and you'll see the category for "Favicon". Use the "Upload" button here to upload your .ico image (or if you have the .ico image uploaded to an image host, use the "Link" button and paste in the direct link to your image there and then press enter). Once the image is in place, the changes should save automatically!
If you follow the steps above but you still see the original "PB" favicon, try clearing your browser cache and that should take care of it!
