Q: Is there an example? A: See "http://populair.eu" that uses the client to request icons from the server

Q: What is Dummy Mode? A: If you have not turned on the cache you are in dummy modus: all your icons will be retrieved from Google.

Q: Should I turn on all image providers? A: This will take the longest time during load but it definitely will provide you with the most correct list of icons e.g. facebook application need to have a pagescan for the favicon

Q: Does it work with all favicons out there? A: Still enhancing the code to at least grab everything possible

Q: Why dont i see all icons? A: There are several caches to slowly load the icons from requests. If you want to disable caching and BURST a lot of requests to both providers and your own database you can set WP_FAVICON_TRANSIENT_TIMEOUT to 1 in the client and WP_FAVICON_REQUEST_TIMEOUT in the server files (wp-favicons-client.php and wp-favicons-server.php). Only recommended if you have the bandwidth

Q: When should I clean the cache? A: After you make changes to the settings or if a new version of the plugin arrives that fixes more items that concern the cache

Q: Is it final yet? A: No only if it reaches version 1.0.0 it will be out of beta so if you have suggestions for improvements please e-mail me

Q: What are the PHP 5.3 or later requirements? A: these are my includes: –with-curl –with-pdo-mysql=mysqlnd –with-zlib –with-mcrypt –enable-mbstring –enable-mbregex –with-gd –with-jpeg-dir –with-png-dir –with-xmlrpc

Q: If i build my own client what is the XMLRPC call? A: default WP XMLRPC: blogid, username, password, followed by 'text', you will get the text as return value enriched with links to icons
