    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes I rebuilt (both from Admin panel and CLI) as well as Clear Cache.

    Page source still showing default favicon:


    Code:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" sizes="196x196" href="client/img/favicon196x196.png">
    
    <link rel="icon" href="client/img/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="client/img/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

    Is my JSON path correct?

    Code:
    custom/Espo/Custom/Resources/metadata/app/client.json
    I didn't originally have an 'app' folder so I created it. Could that be the problem?

    Did you also rebuild your Espo instance ?

    If you did and the default favicon is still showing, check the page source in your browser (right click > page source) and make sure that the correct image file including path is being included in the page like this.

    Click image for larger version

Name:	favicon source.JPG
Views:	1799
Size:	33.6 KB
ID:	60956

    (In your case the path should be "client/custom/img/{name and extension of your image file}" instead of "client/modules/property-management/img/{name and extension of your image file}" )

    I followed the steps above.

    Created file:
    Code:
    custom/Espo/Custom/Resources/metadata/app/client.json
    With contents:
    Code:
    {
    "favicon": "client/custom/img/favicon-ficrm.ico",
    "favicon196": "client/custom/img/favicon192x192-ficrm.ico"
    }
    And saved my png's to folder :
    Code:
    client/custom/img
    But still showing default favicon.

    I've flushed cache and also removed 'favicons-journal' from browser AppData.

    Am I missing something?

    I don't think that a relative path is possible because Espo is expecting a full path to specify the favicon source - see lines 12,13 and 14 at html/mail.html script here https://github.com/espocrm/espocrm/c...7566b8aead69d9

    Thanks telecastg

    Yes, that the plan, I'm using custom favicon but was hoping if relative path possible since I can just upload the example for future EspoCRM user and since it is relative they can just exact the file and it should work.

    So instead of full path: client/custom/img/favicon.ico

    (From reading Linux "relative path"), it seem like this code might be possible (maybe):

    ../../../favicon.ico

    If you just add an image to the core folder client/img (this is where the espo favicon.ico is located) you might lose it in an update.

    You would be better off making a custom folder client/custom/img and then storing your custom favicon images there.

    If you do this, the full path would be then: "client/custom/img/favicon.ico"

    I'm planning to add favicon in the same folder. Does anyone know if a relative path way?

    Can I just do this type of code?


    Code:
    {
    "favicon": "/favicon.ico",
    "favicon196": "favicon.ico"
    }

    Replacing the favicon of EspoCRM work, I did it before but update/change installation revert it back. If you are seeing old (or original EspoCRM favicon) it because your webbrowser is using the cache icon. Just need to clear it or use a new browser and new favicon should show.

    I didn't know you can edit filepath in 5.8.3 now.
