Choose Favicon in HTML Title


TL;DR: Where can I configure MediaGoblin's favicon , and how can I tell it to stop showing my PID in the page title?

I noticed that mediagoblin.ini allows you to configure the title of the page by exposing the html_title variable. This does work, and it changes the default GNU MediaGoblin text to a title of your choosing.

However, the MediaGoblin logo remains present as the favicon. Also, when you hover over the tab, the PID is exposed to the end user. For example, if you go to https://unclepaul.info, you can hover over the tab and see UnclePaul.info - (PID 17306) [A]. I would love to hide this information, as it provides no benefit to the user unless they're an attacker wanting to enumerate my running processes.

Please let me know if it's possible to change these two things, and if so, please let me know how.

Just an update: somehow I no longer see the PID of MediaGoblin in the browser tab. I didn't change anything, but it appears to be gone.

I would still like to keep this issue open for the favicon configuration question.

Thanks ~bxbrenden, I've updated the ticket title so that it now only mentions the favicon.
