Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am trying to get a favicon to appear next to the url. I have uploaded a 16px by 16px icon called favicon.ico in my websites directory which didn't do anything.I alsoput this code after the >? in catalog/includes/header.php <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://buyncollect.com/catalog/favicon.ico"> that just got rid of default icon which is displayed for webpages that don't have favicons.

 

P.S I know that some people say you don't need any code but im using it just incase.

Check the site.

 

You uploaded it into the root folder not the catalog folder.

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

It doesn't exist.

Change the link to it to be:

 

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://buyncollect.com/favicon.ico">

Is that what you did for your website?

If not could you post what you did.

 

Thanks for your post anyway

It works on both of the browsers I use (IE7 and FF3.0).

 

Try this:

 

1. Change the link to this:

 

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

 

2. Move the code from where it is now to the <head> section of the page where it's supposed to be.

 

3. Close all your browsers.

 

4. Clear your temporary internet files.

 

5. Restart your browser and access the site.

 

If it still doesn't show up try holding the <Ctrl> key down while doing a page refresh in the browser to force the browser to reload all contents from the server.

In case you don't know the <head> section is in /includes/template_top.php

 

I'd put it just above the </head> tag.

Personally I've never succumbed to the "Mac attack".

 

You have the right code in the right place and it still works on both my browsers.

 

Maybe someone else with a different browser than I use will chime in to say if it works for their browser as well.

Clear the browser cache and delete all stored offline content.

 

Thanks!

It works :)
