Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

Change icon in tab

How can I change the icon in the tab that appears in the attached photo?


I have searched everywhere in the Vanilla community but cannot find a solution.

I've looked through /dashboard/design/style.css file and tried editing the following code:

ul.Tabs li a.EntryTabFor_password {
    padding-left: 22px;
    background-image: url('images/icon.png');
    background-position: 3px 4px;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;

but changing the source of the image does not change the icon.

    It's a favorite icon. On Vanilla 2.1+ you can upload that in the dashboard. In your theme, it's probably in the master template file in the header and looks like this:

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