View Full Version : Favicon not working right
Mar 8th, 2004, 01:38 PM
Hey. I placed an icon in my home directory to be displayed in Explorer's address bar. The icon is 16 colors and is 16X16 in size. When I load my page it doesn't show up in the address bar, but it does appear after I bookmark the page. How do I make it show in the address bar without having to bookmark it? I've also used <LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://www.mysite.com/favicon.ico">and that didn't help.

favicon.ico is set to work when the page is bookmarked - otherwise it will not show.

Well, that settles it. Thanks.

Although IE will only display favicons that have been bookmarked, this is not true for mozilla or opera. To display your favicon for these try;
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/favicon"/>
note the addition of "type". Never mind the "/" before ">", this is only for xhtml docs.
