Hello :)

Is it possible for the favicon to show up next to the url in IE? ( Like what happens in firefox) E.g. see pic:

http://www.webstarters.co.nz/stuartw/favicon.gif

The code I am using is:


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

Any ideas? :confused:

Does the server support favicon?

Does it work if you have it added to your favorites?

I think in IE the site has to be added to the IE favourites for it work. Personally I tried many ways to get IE to use my favicon for my site but nothing I did made it work so eventually gave up. Firefox finds it and uses it easy as we all know.

I use a different code though....

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.cncnz.com/layout/cncnz.ico" type="image/x-icon">A Google search gives you heaps of info so have a look http://www.google.co.nz/search?lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=favicon.ico

LOL, most server support would support this, as itís a browser thing not a server thing

Yep

Like Sonic said use the full path to the icon.

Maybe you could include a wee message or link to "bookmark/add to favourites" on the page.
