[resolved] WSA Favicon plugin needs Imagick.? (8 posts)

    I installed this plugin that displays a favicon but I get the following warning:

    WARNING: Currently your web server does not have Imagick installed. This will prevent WSA Favicon from creating ICO files with support for multiple resolutions or transparency. Please ask your web hosting provider for instructions on how to install Imagick.

    Well I contacted my host and they replied: "The path for ImageMagick is /usr/local/lib/ImageMagick. Please add the path in wordpress."

    I have no idea where to put this...anyone?

    Thanks, Joe

  2. No reason to hack a plugin to support imagemagick or even use a plugin for a favicon. Just make a favicon.ico and put it in root; all browsers will pick it up.

    Thanks, where in root would I put it? I don't see one in there now. Right now it is displaying an rss feed icon. Does it need to go in root under wordpress?

  4. Web root. Same level as wp-config.php.

    Is this location with my host under my WP files or do I get to it through the editor in WP dashboard?

  6. Web root. Use FTP.

    I put an image favicon.ico at the web root. Same level as wp-config.php and nothing ever changes. Driving me a little crazy!

    I also went into wordpress editor and temporarily removed the line:

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

    and then saved and the icon is still there. How do I get rid of the icon that looks like an rss feed.
