Hi all.

I designed one of these - a basic one, followwed the instructions and put it in my Public_html directory on my server - same as the index file

you can call up the url and dispaly it, but the browser doen't add it in like it's suposed to.

also added this code to the as well

"link rel="icon" href="" type="image/x-icon" /"

"link rel="shortcut icon" href="" type="image/x-icon" /"

ignore the " marks where there should be an < or >they are there to show the code - any ideas why it doesn't work ???

I just saved mine as favicon.ico and uploaded into my public folder and it displayed properly ... or it did until I closed my site!

Peter, you could try adding in the http: etc to the href bit. Bit of a long shot, but I know that works on mine.

CB... To the left of this page URL in your browser is a little icon - a red 'e' in a little square. That is known as a 'favicon'. Most web pages don't have them.

The reference you have added works, I can see your favicon (looks a bit like a star with dark background).

But some browser simple ignore favicons. I use a old Mozilla and the favicon will be displayed, but with the IE explorer not.

I'm using IE 6 ay work and IE 7 at home and it don't show up :-(((

EPZ's works at home so too does Alamy etc - odd !!
