View Full Version : Favicon not showing up

08-23-2005, 07:09 PM
So I am trying to use a favicon. I know the ropes on how to add one. I have added the favicon.ico at the root of my site. And I have also added the links to my page so that the favicon shows up. I know it is there, I can view it with a direct link. No, it shows up in most browsers, but not in Safari on my mac. The strange thing is, when I make the page secure, adding https instead of http the favicon WILL show up. I have no idea why this would be, but it is only happening in Safari. All other favicon work, such as this site. Do you think it could be something with the permissions of my favicon?

Not quite sure I I get you. You say at the end that all other favicons work. Is it just yours which doesn;t? and where yours doesn't are you referring only to the mac Safari?

Anyhoo, All I could suggest is to make sure that the favicon link, is in the head of your document. and that you have the favicon uploaded to your server.

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

making sure that the location of your favicon is as shown in the link.
