Adding a Fav Icon

A fav icon is the small icon that appears in a browsers toolbar for each website.

Browser toolbar showing a favicon

To add your own custom favicon to a site, simply upload the icon to the /upload directory.

  1. Generate your favicon
  2. Ensure the favicon is named favicon.ico
  3. In the Spring Manager, click on the File Manager tab
  4. Click the 'Upload files to this folder link'
  5. Choose the favicon.ico file and upload it

You may need to wait up to 5 minutes for Spring to update the site. It should also be noted, that the favicon tends to be cached quite well, so you may need to clear your cache several times to view it.

Creating a Fav Icon

There are several free online services for creating favicons.
