Favourite Icon


Recommended Posts

Hello All,


I've been trying to add a favourite icon to a web site using the code


<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="/favicon.ico">

The icon is 16x16 and in the root directory. I read that it might take a little while for it to show ,especially in IE but it's seems like ages now!


Thank you as awlays,


Best wshes

The / in front of favicon will only work with an online page, not from a local file unless you have Apache server and are using it to view the page.


If you have uploaded your page and the favicon.ico into the root directory online, clear your cache (while your browser is looking at another page because the cache may not clear the page showing on the screen) and then download the page again.
