If you would like to rename favicon.ico (e.g. use static media folder on more than one site) you can simply put this into the global page template head:

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="/static/my_favicon2.ico" />

handle 404

Anyhow you will get requests to the default /favicon.ico. PyLucid raised a 404 error.
To avoid this, create a redirect entry from /favicon.ico to /static/my_favicon2.ico with:

  • Django admin site / Redirects / add

if the redirect entry fix it, look into:

  • Django admin site / PyLucid / Log entries
