I am currently trying to change the site icon. I have uploaded the icon picture to the Style Library in a folder titled Demo.

The name of the picture is Logo and it is a .png file.

When I give the relative URL in the url box, I get a 404 error page even know the url is correct.

Is there an additional feature that has to be enabled on the site. I have doubled check that the image has been published.

  • Usually the site just displays a red cross where the picture is supposed to be if it isn't found. Are you sure there isn't anything else in the masterpage which could cause this error? – user2536 Apr 16 '12 at 13:15

Check to see if you have installed any 3rd party SharePoint add-ons that may have modified the web.config. Also check for any manual web.config changes.

  • We did, we used a branding add-on. I was unaware of this since I wasn't involved. – Patrick_J Apr 17 '12 at 17:24

Did you set the URL in the form of /SiteAssets/Photo1.png? Please note the leading slash - it's needed. I even have tested your exact location: /Style%20Library/TestFolder/Photo1.png
