I have been trying to get this to work, but have no luck.
My root folder name is "Course"
Image is in "Course/images"
The htm page is located in "Course/Module_01_Activity_01"
I have this code in the head tag.
in additiom to Mylenium's advice:
Upload the favicon.ico file to your server's root directory.
Insert this line of code between the <Head> </Head> tags on your home or index.html page:
If you wish to use an animated icon too, upload the animated_favicon1.gif as above and add one of this code lines:
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="icon" href="pictures/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /> (I use it)
<link rel="icon" href="animated_favicon1.gif" type="image/gif">
Most of our browsers must to be brought to show the icon, might be you have to do this too:
Clear ALL your caches!
Check with another browser, the new icon will be there.
- If set, delete the bookmark to the page or re-create the bookmark.
- Quit browser
- Empty the Temp Internet Files Internet Options
- Clear History
- Delete everything in general, where the browser remembers visited sites.
- Clear Site visit
- Clear Bookmark
