Jcink Forum Hosting Favicon Tutorial

Many websites you visit may display a small Icon in the navigation bar tabs of your browser (also known as a favicon); You can add one with a small edit to the Board Wrappers.


  1. In your Board Wrappers, just below the <title><% TITLE %></title> line place:
    <link href="youriconname.png" rel="icon"/>
  2. You can edit the youriconname.png to link to your icon image.

Try and keep the icon the correct size (16×16 pixels is most common) and in the png format.

You can host the image at any site but we recommended that you use the built in Filemanager of your Jcink Forum for optimal speed/reliability/insurance that your image will remain hosted. See the Filemanager tutorial for more info on how to do this.

Favicon Not Working?

If you can't see your newly added favicon, try these troubleshooting steps:

  1. Check your board wrappers for any HTML errors such as:
  2. is there more than one <DOCTYPE> tag?
  3. is there more than one <body> or <head> tag?
  4. does the <head> tag close correctly?
  5. Try a known working image: https://jcink.com/favicon.png if it displays, the problem may be the image.
