    I cannot seem to find the documentation on favicons for OEM version. We have more than one OEM license and it would help to be able to identify each application in browser tabs.

    Best regards,


  5. myDBR Team, Key Master

    To use OEM favicons, override the $mydbr_defaults['oem']['favicons'] array which has format of:

       'oem' => array(
    'favicons' => array(
    'favico' => null,
    'apple-touch-icon' => null,
    'apple-touch-icon-72x72' => null,
    'apple-touch-icon-114x114' => null,
    'apple-touch-icon-144x144' => null

    The original entry is defines in defaults.php and you can override it in user/defaults.php.
