PageLines Favicon Shows Up During WordPress Administration

I've not seen this issue in the past, but after starting to use PageLines themes, I notice that the PageLines Favicon is showing up while in WordPress administration. Is there any way to make the WordPress favicon show up while in WordPress Administration?

I think the PageLines favicon is the default favicon for the theme - unless you upload a new favicon - or perhaps delete the PL favicaon from the theme's image files. There are numerous free favicon generators on the web if you want to create your own, btw.

Yes, the PageLines favicon will show up as your own website's default favicon if you don't change it in settings. However, what I'm referring to is when I'm using the WordPress Administration console for my website. If I switch to using any other theme, and my site is set to that theme, when I go to the WordPress Administrative console, I'll see my own favicon rather than the favicon for the developer of the theme that I've chosen. I just tested this out. What makes sense would be to either see a WordPress icon, or my own site's icon. So, I'm not sure why the favicon for Pagelines is showing up.

I just loaded iBlog2 2.8.1 and this anomaly went away. So, apparently it's a quirk with iBlogPro 3.

In the options framework for the latest theme updates, there is an admin initialization which sets pagelines favicon in the admin. We feel this is ok, since by default the admin doesn't have a favicon.

yes arpowers, but some sites have many contributors and authors. To them, the back end is every bit a part of the site. Or are you suggesting its only when an admin logs in?

ah, I see. Great point. Well no worries, we'll change it to reflect the favicon option- which should be a cool feature :) ap

But until then, what file do I modify and where do I put my favicon icon so that when I log in to wp-admin I see the favicon I want to see instead of the pagelines one? Thanks,

btw, I feel the same way about the pagelines logo on the main page. I can understand the free versions having advertisements and I can understand the desire to promote your products, however these are expensive commercial themes.

I understand your viewpoint. That's why we do allow users to remove the 'attribution' we just don't make it super easy. Most competitors, for instance Thesis, don't allow you to remove the link at all.

I'd like a vote for my own favicon in wordpress admin as well please -- I uploaded my own favicon and it seems to be working on the external version of the site, but internally I still see the leaf. I like it to be honest...but it's more helpful to have my own logo so I can differentiate between my many open tabs. All the best, Jason

We've fixed this; if you add your own favicon (to the favicon option) You should see your own favicon on the site and in the admin.
