Defect Status

Issue 16384-16897 / VYG-262 is resolved for Voyager 8.1.2 and higher.

Replication Steps

Using Chapter 15 of the WebVoyage Architecture Overview and Configuration Models “How Do I Display A Favicon?”, attempt to add a favicon to WebVoyage:
1. Upload the favicon.ico file attached to this issue to your system, under /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/<skin>/images/
2. Edit frameWork.xsl (/m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/<skin>/xsl/pageTools/) and add the following two lines of code under the <head> section (line 72):
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="{$image-loc}favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="icon" href="{$image-loc}favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon " />
3. Save and close this file
4. Go to the OPAC in Firefox and/or Chrome, you’ll see the favicon display when the page loads
5. View the same page in Internet Explorer, no favicon is displayed, but the blue “E” is shown in its place.
