Replace TG 1.0 favicon with a prettier one

Reported by: Chris Arndt Owned by: jon
Priority: high Milestone: 1.1.x bugfix
Component: Quickstart Templates Version: 1.1 HEAD
Severity: normal Keywords: quickstart templates, favicon


The default favicon in the quickstart templates still hails from pre 1.0 days and is ugly. It should be replaced before the 1.1 final release.

TG 2.x quickstart templates has the same icon, so it should be replaced there, too.

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by Chris Arndt

A simple idea would be to make something similar like the favicon used on this trac but with a greenish background, matching the color scheme of the quickstart templates.

For this favicon, I just used the gear image and resized it and put it on a blue background. To do it properly, one should probably draw the gear again to make it llook good at the tiny size.

comment:4 Changed 10 years ago by chrisz

I've created an icon by resizing the header image. The attached icon file contains the two sizes, 32x32 and 16x16. If nobody volunteers to draw one by hand, we can use that.

Jonathan offered to help, so I'm sure he'll soon come up with something pretty! Thanks anyway!

Jon, any progress on this? I'd like to release TG 1.1 final tonight, and it would be good to include the new favicon.

If you don't have it ready, I'll use the favicon trac uses for now.

  • Milestone changed from 1.1 to 1.1.x bugfix

Ok, added the favicon chrisz provided for now in r6789. We can replace this in a later version.

I don't think anything will happen here any more.
