Custom Favicon

Hello,

Can you add a custom favicon option in settings? (Like the logo).

Currently we can only choose from either nothing or the Perch one. (This is something that I've been asked multiple times from clients)

If you turn off Perch branding then your site's favicon should take its place.

This doesn't happen in the Perch Admin unfortunately at the moment, well not for me anyway

You may need to look at your implementation.

I assume you mean use UI customisations, they get included at the end of the page so not all browsers play ball.

No, I mean I think your problem is outside of Perch.

I don't understand how implementing a Favicon within the Perch admin, is outside of Perch.

To implement a favicon you need to add this to the page <head>

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/my-custom-favicon" type="image/x-icon">

At the moment there is no way to add this to a /perch/* page.

If you turn off Perch branding, then Perch won't add its own favicon. When no favicon is specified, the favicon is inherited from the context. So to have the /perch folder show your favicon, make sure it's properly implemented at the root level and then turn off branding.

Favicons are aggressively cached, so don't expect immediate results.
