1. You need to upload your favicon.ico to the root folder of your Q2A script.
2. In your advanced theme add such a function:
function head_custom()
{
    $this->output('<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">');
}

I think it is a lack in Q2A system, that favicon is not defined by default.
Could you add this code and default favicon to the core, GidGreen ?

Gooda! You are right, Gidgreen, favicon works without metatag when online (at least on Ch 16, FF 3.6, IE 8).

I tried to use this technique but it didn't work.
I have installed question2answer 1.5 on an offline Wordpress blog. Since I'm using the default theme, I added a qa-theme.php file to the Default directory.
I then uploaded the favicon file inside the main folder of Question2Answer.
Finally I pasted in the php file only the following content:
<?php

    class qa_html_theme extends qa_html_theme_base
    {
        function head_custom()
        {
            $this->output('<link rel="shortcut icon" href="logosquare.ico">');
        }   
       
    }

However, the favicon is not shown. What could it be the cause?
by
No idea why. Try changing logosquare.ico into favicon.ico.

Thank you, it worked, although strange.
