How do I change/add favicon.ico of the minimalist osclass theme?

I am a novice in programming. Please, I need vivid guidelines on how i can change/customize the favicon.ico of minimalist osclass theme.

There are 2 ways to set your favicon on any website. One is through html link tag, other by putting .ico file in your root directory. Setting with html will overwrite the .ico in your root directory in case you set them both.

To define favicon with html tag:
You can use any png, gif, jpg file as icon and define it in your html header, between <head> tags. You can use animated gif as well.

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="">
<link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="">

To define with .ico file
Also you can generate .ico file using online service like by uploading any image. It will generate .ico file which you can place in your root folder so it can be accessed via url like

This will be used for all files that do not have icon defined with html link tag.

If you want to define favicon with osclass theme then edit header.php file of your theme and add <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" /> tag between <head> and </head> tags, it may be after closing </title> tag for example. And put ico file to your root folder.

How do I change the header and footer colour?

You can use regular CSS to custom color your theme. It requires some advanced knowledge. Also theme is not designed for custom colors, it will require more work and attention than regular one line color change codes.

Paste this code to "Appearance" -> "Theme settings" in osclass admin (when minimalist theme is active).

How can I add drop-down item in “region” section and “city” section ?

Hi. . .In the page “Publish your ad for free”, there is a section named “Listing Location”. . .There is a drop-down menu in Country Section. . .How can I add that type of drop-down in “region” section and “city” section ??

We built Minimalist Osclass Theme based on default Osclass theme, and selecting city is not there for default themes. That is why it is not available in Minimalist as well. It is more Osclass question rather than theme question. So cannot suggest any valid solution.
