How do I add a favicon for my wiki?

Version 4.1 by Vincent Massol on 2013/11/30

  1. First, you'll need administrator privileges.
  2. Once logged in as an admin, go to the administration page, up to main menu bar: "Wiki" -> "Administer Wiki."
  3. Next find the link "Page Elements" under the "Look and Feel" tab of the left-hand side navigation.
  4. There you will find a field labeled, "HTTP Meta Info"
  5. Add the following lines in the HTTP Meta Information:
    <link rel="icon" href="$xwiki.getSkinFile("favicon.ico")" type="image/x-icon"/>
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="$xwiki.getSkinFile("favicon.ico")" type="image/x-icon"/>
  6. Then, visit the XWiki.DefaultSkin page and attach a favicon.ico file.
  7. Finally, the most important, refresh your browser cache.
