For some reason the social site does not want to use my own favicon for my website unless i completely delete the existing favicon files in the main directory and the selected theme directory. after loading the main page, i open the page source and notice that the code that gets generated, puts a link element in the source, however it is labeled as shortcut icon. i have found that when i want to set my main website's favicon, i have to add a link element labeled 'icon' in the source. I have tried to find where the page's source is generated, but i have begun to get frustrated. Maybe add a setting in the admin page or installation page for us to select our own favicon.
