I am trying to change the favicon for my portal pages. I have searched for favicon.ico, but cannot find it. I did find the following line in the html source:
<link href='/wps/themes/html/IBM/images/Portal.ico' rel="shortcut icon">
But when I change the Portal.ico file, it does not show the new image.
Where do I change the image for the favicon?

Re: Favicon2013-02-14T23:10:32Z in response to SystemAdminNow, in a newer version theme (I'm using the default Portal 8.0 theme at the time of writing) I had luck with this:
I replaced the favicon.ico that is the images folder within the WebDAV base folder for my theme (or just the base folder for my theme since I am including static resources in my deployable WAR and not using WebDAV). Then I modified a line of code in bootstrap.jspf (you can see a before and after)...
//urlMap.put("portalIcon", createURL(urlFct, new URI(themeWebDAVBaseURI + "images/favicon.ico"), null, isProtected));
Now, perhaps it is the case with the newer themes that if you are using the WebDAV approach, you can just update that favicon.ico file in WebDAV and it'll work fine. I think that since I am not using WebDAV, it was defaulting to a safety icon for portal, so I had to put a relative path in there like that.
