View Full Version : favicon

I created a favicon.ico for my site, stuck it in the root and it show's up fine in Opera but not in Safari or IE.
The site I used Favicon (http://www.degraeve.com/favicon/) also gives some code to put in index page but as the index page is .php and not html it dosen't work.
Where do I put this code to get the icon to show in IE?

You can put html code in a php file. It just has to be place before the starter <? php

Thanks EcoSee, at least its showing the page now, before it reported errors but the icon still does not show in IE.
Opps.... I'm wrong, it actually screwed up the template, the footer was huge, just didn't see it as I hadn't scrolled down.

I found this......
Browser Issues: Microsoft IE 6 for Windows will not display the favicon until the URL has been added to the favorites, and Safari for the MAC will not display an updated favicon until the browser cache has been cleared. But choosing ‘empty cache’ from the menu won't help because Safari stores favicons in a separate cache.
so I maybe trying to flog a dead horse, unless anything has changed with IE7.

You need to add the <link....> code for the favicon between the opening and closing head tags in your template files (image_template.html, browse_template.html, about_template.html, etc.), not in the PP index.php file.
You are correct though about IE not displaying it unless it's been bookmarked.

It's working fine for me.
If you don't see it, it's probably due to your browser's cache.
Simply empty your cache and try again. :)
You only need to use the <link...> tag when you are specifying a favicon that is not in the root site directory.
