Hi All,

I have been reading about “favicon.ico” on the net and have tried it, but can’t seem to get it working.  Can someone please help me?

I have it in the root directory of my site, but IE7 isn’t seeing it… I doubt if anyone else can see it…

Any and all help GREATLY appreciated!

TIA,
Brenda

Make 100pix x 100pix image in any image application like Photoshop or PaintShopPro and in the end resize to 16pix x 16pix (suitable for the browsers).
Download for example Photoshop Plug-Ins\Filters to be able to save the file in ICO format because otherwise it wont work.
Name it favicon.ico and place it in root (unix) /public_html
Additionaly you can add this in head of the HTML document but it is not necessary

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

See the example here http://www.msdeurope.com/favicon.ico

A better way of going about creating a favicon.ico is to use a Freeware piece of software called png2ico.  It takes a PNG and creates a ICO file from it, I’d hardily suggest you google it.  Cheers.

Thats a definite negative.  I’ve read other sources that have suggested alternative methods which involve renaming, but a lot of other sources (the more hardcore) blast this method to pieces.  I have also seen someone specify a shortcut icon as a gif in their meta tags, but I imagine this isn’t best practice, and it was weird seeing an animated favicon in my address bar.  Cheers.

If you are using WP, there is a plug-in available that simplifies the favicon issue.  Thanks.

Once your Favicon.ico file was producted via any generator. Upload it to your website and add <link rel="shortcut icon” href="/favicon.ico" />
code into your HTML. The code should be placed after your <head> tag

Getting favicons to work can be a real pain. I used to try to get them to work on Blogger.
After finally getting this to happen, I switched to Wordpress. It always seems like Favicons
are one big battle. Finally, I just gave up. But I do know there are some awesome Wordpress
Plugins (for those of you using Wordpress) that makes them work really easily. :)

You can use your favorite graphics editor and save it as favicon.ico
