The implementation of favicons is incorrect for types other than .png.
Tiki currently renders the favicon as:
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.png" />
Notice that there is no declaration of MIME type (very bad). If you goto Administration | Look & feel | Other, there is a pull-down box to select the favicon icon MIME type, which gives choices:
None of these selections actually effect the LINK tag! In other words, someone forgot to implement the MIME attribute of the link tag. Even if it was implemented, these choices would be wrong (see solution).
Also on the Look & feel | Other page, there is a 32 character limit on the favicon icon file name. This limit is too small and is problematic for sites where the favicon is not located in the tiki root directory.
(1) Correctly implement favicons. Here are 3 excellent resources for that purpose:
For standard browsers the correct rendoring should be either:
<link rel="icon" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon" href="http://example.com/image.ico"> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="http://example.com/image.png"> <link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="http://example.com/image.gif"> <link rel="icon" type="image/jpeg" href="http://example.com/image.jpg">
For Internet Explorer, versions 5 to 7
<link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="http://http://example.com/image.ico"/>
I dont know about IE support for non-.ico type favicons.
(2) Menu choices should be updated to:
(3) The character limit for favicon URL (it should be called URL not file-name), should be extended to something like 132 characters.

Unable to connect to show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
