Admin Favicon Update:

A lot of popular WordPress plugins have not been properly updated for several years now, and contain deprecated code. While the plugin may seem "fine" when its activated in wp-admin, deprecated code often means that it's not functioning properly. This tends to only be noticed when you enable debug mode in the wp-config.php file.

Admin Favicon gives the following error when activated:
Notice: has_cap was called with an argument that is deprecated since version 2.0! Usage of user levels by plugins and themes is deprecated. Use roles and capabilities instead. in X:\...\wp-includes\functions.php on line 2722
This refers to permissions based on user levels (old, wrong) vs permissions based on capabilities (new, correct).

Where to Download ?

You can either download our ready-to-use files...

How / Where to Download the Files?
You'll find the attached file downloads at the bottom of this top post. Files are provided for the convenience of our members. To get download access, simply join the forum as either a Free Member or Premium Member. We don't send spam or sell your email addresses. If you're not sure what to do with .zip or .rar files, see this help post.

What Was Changed ?

... or you can make the edits yourself.

Line 36 of adminfavicon.php refers to user level 1:
add_options_page(__('Admin Favicon'), __('Admin Favicon'), 1, __FILE__, 'favi_options_page');
It needs to be changed to reflect an admin capability like activate_plugins():
add_options_page(__('Admin Favicon'), __('Admin Favicon'), 'activate_plugins', __FILE__, 'favi_options_page');
And that's it.
