Is there any need for a favicon extension?
I would use it.

Have a look at this: [DEV] Favicon

But I can quote VSE here, especially part one of his post:
VSE wrote:I don't see why such an overly complicated extension is needed here, for two reasons:

Fav icons and touch icons just need to be placed in your root directories these days, and they are done. There is no longer a need for any link tags in HTML to get them working, and that's especially true with the modern browsers phpBB requires.

Second, phpBb is planning to ship with a fav icon of its own, at least there is a ticket for one.
If you have a specific extension request and you are willing to pay for, you can write me a PM.

Yes, I thought so, but for some reason that does not work on my server. Strange.


Thanks both of you!

make sure it is a .ico file and then try putting the favicon in both the site root and phpbb root to see if that helps. also, go ahead and put the html link in the overall_header file of whatever styles you use especially if it is not a .ico file.
