Default Re: Favicon

This is how to change admin-side favicon (what you see as admin user):

Default X-Payments favicon is <xp-dir>/public/images/xpayments.ico. To change it you should simply replace this file with your one. Note: after that these changes should be approved in the X-Payments admin backend on the Dashboard section.
If you use X-Payments for Small Business or for Malls - you need to contact us using your Helpdesk account and send your favicon file - we will replace it for you.

This is how to change front-end side favicon (what customers see when they checkout):

To setup a favicon for X-Payments, you should do the following:

- create an icon file and save it as your template name is. E.g. if your online store uses "mytemplate" template, you should save favicon as "mytemplate.ico"
- upload that file into the <xp-dir>/public/templates directory
- make sure it has enough permissions (e.g. open it via browser: https://example.com/public/templates/mytemplate.ico)
- approve the changes in the X-Payments files on the Dashboard page in the admin backend

Of course.. that's why it appears to be caching -- the wrong image (xp) is loading!

I can't believe I am the first to notice this!?

Honestly, I noticed this at first installation, but then I just placed my favicon into root -- and to xp root. I assumed (incorrectly) that the reason it didn't go away was because of caching. No -- the favicon is hidden deep into the file structure. Wow. Took some real engineering to do this. This was not an accident, was it? Inexperienced engineers don't know how to put a favicon deep into a file structure. I stand by my "tree with chains" request

UPDATE: I changed the image to my own favicon (renamed my image, "xpayments.ico" - confirmed the change in the xp dashboard, purged the cache of all of my browsers, but the favicon remains. Is there an "x-payments image cache" that needs to be purged as well?

Thanks,
Jeremy

Me again.

Carpeperdiem, have you made sure that the change (of the *.ico) doesn't have to be approved in the X-Payments back-end. QT suggested that any changes to X-P have to be approved. There should be a notice when you login to the X-P back end (Dashboard) that says something like "A template has been changed you need to approve it" Check it and let me know.

Yes, of course. If you make ANY edits or changes to x-p files, it requires a trip to the dashboard to approve.

I have been unable to purge the old xp favicon image from my computer. I have tested with new computers that have never been to my site. the XP favicon continues to load, even though it has been purged from my xpayments directory.

Wanna bet there is another xp favicon hidden in xpayments?

Alex, any idea where another place for xp favicon could be?

It needs to be purged forever.

Default Re: Favicon

Found it...

<xp-dir>/public/templates/default.ico

"default.ico" ???? Nested deep into a file structure?
I stand by my "tree and chains" punishment for the engineer that thought this was a good idea.

PS -- why are there more than one .ico file in the default xp installation?

Default Re: Favicon

Sorry, my bad. I confused the admin side ico with front-end ones. I'll correct my above post.

To setup a favicon for X-Payments front-end, you should do the following:

- create an icon file and save it as your template name is. E.g. if your online store uses "mytemplate" template, you should save favicon as "mytemplate.ico"
- upload that file into the <xp-dir>/public/templates directory
- make sure it has enough permissions (e.g. open it via browser: https://example.com/public/templates/mytemplate.ico)
- approve the changes in the X-Payments files on the Dashboard page in the admin backend

Hi Alex,

Unfortunately, the engineer responsible for this prefers to see X-Cart branding in customer browser windows.

In X-P 1.0.6, /public/templates/default.ico is still the x-payments .ico

Quote:
Next time someone on your team does something obnoxious like this, I give you permission to take them outside, chain them to a tree, and force them to spend the night in the cold without food or water. That seems like an appropriate punishment.

You see -- had the engineer spent a winter night outside, they'd have learned a lesson. With spring coming early this year the punishment will not be all that uncomfortable and we may have to wait until next year.
