Implementing $wgFavicon (1.31 KB, patch)
2006-01-04 17:13 UTC, nekocue

Description T. Gries 2005-12-17 11:32:04 UTC
Everytime after new installations, I have to patch function initpage.php in module Skin.php to adapt MediaWiki 
according to me needs- my wikis' favicons' live in their _script_ paths. 
To make it better configurable, I propose to implement one of two methods. 
(1) drop the constant filename in Skin::initpage and change it to become another variable $wgFaviconPath of 
	function initPage( &$out ) { 
		global $wgFaviconPath 
		$out->addLink( array( 'rel' => 'shortcut icon', 'href' => $wgFaviconPath ) ); 
(2) (alternative method) change the filename to become dependent on the current $wgScriptPath, so that every Wiki 
installation can have its own favicon.ico in its script path 
	function initPage( &$out ) { 
		global $wgScriptPath; 
		$out->addLink( array( 'rel' => 'shortcut icon', 'href' => $wgScriptPath . '/favicon.ico' ) ); 
[ Because of the alternatives, I did not attach a regular patch file ]

My inclination is to stick in a $wgFaviconPath.

The only reason we have the link tag in there is that Mozilla requires it to follow the 
preexisting (IE-based) /favicon.ico convention.

Implementing $wgFavicon

Enables configuring favicon by changing $wgFavicon.

# I think $wgFavicon looks prettier with $wgLogo, rather than $wgFaviconPath.

Applied to CVS HEAD for 1.6.
