Create highres favicons and implement them
Confirmed, NormalPublicTO DO

Description

On most Blender.org websites the favicons look bad, compare this website to b.o for example.

Currently, we only have 16x16 icon which is below todays modern recommendations.

Below are the sites that need to be updated. (There maybe be more)

Below are updated icons:

Included are bonus icons that can be used for other purposes:

<link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="180x180" href="/apple-touch-icon.png">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="/favicon-32x32.png">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="/favicon-16x16.png">
<link rel="manifest" href="/site.webmanifest">
<link rel="mask-icon" href="/safari-pinned-tab.svg" color="#da532c">
<meta name="msapplication-TileColor" content="#da532c">
<meta name="theme-color" content="#ffffff">

Thanks for this! I'll ask Mike to have a look at it.

Francesco Siddi (fsiddi) changed the subtype of this task from "Report" to "To Do".Wed, Jan 22, 12:20 PM

Had a chat with Pablo and Mike. Currently we are not able to apply these changes for a couple of reasons:

  • the proposed favicon is simply a downscaled version of the Blender logo – we can work on a more suitable variation for this
  • integrating such change in some of the website requires careful work (further customization of the mediawiki bootstrap skin for example) for which there is no bandwidth currently

This proposal goes on the todo list for now.
