your browser (most of our browsers) must be convinced first to show It! 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 again
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, here you could use:
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /> or
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /> or
<link rel="icon" href="pictures/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /> (I use it)
<link rel="icon" href="animated_favicon1.gif" type="image/gif">
I don't know if this will help or not, but make sure that your link to your favicon is site root relative (put the slash at the start of the path). Here is the code I use in my Template (note that my favicon is located in my images folder):
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/ico" href="/images/favicon.ico"/>
Thank you very much. I apologize for the tardy thanks, but this really did help. Once again, thank you.
you are very welcome, I am very glad that it now works, your favicon.
