Adding favicons in masked forwarding
Last Updated: January 11, 2022
Favicons are the tiny logos for websites that show up in browser tabs. Unfortunately, favicons are not explicitly supported in masked forwarding. In some cases, you can add favicons using the meta tag field, but there is no guarantee that it will work and we cannot troubleshoot it if it does not. To try adding the favicon to a masked forward, paste the following into the meta tag field:
<link rel="icon" href="(URL of the favicon)" type="image/x-icon"> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="(URL of the favicon)" type="image/x-icon">
If this does not work, switching to a regular redirect will allow the site to use the favicon of the site you are redirecting to. If you need a refresher on setting up forwarding, refer to our article here.
