How do I make my favicon visible?
Did you upload it to the server?
As @Amaury stated, you have to upload it to your server, in the root of the forum and it needs to be named favicon.ico. It sometimes takes a bit for your browser to refresh the cache and show it.
I initially uploaded it to the image folder. Moved it to the root but still not showing. Will wait a bit to see if it shows up tomorrow. Thanks guys!
Mine is also not showing although it's only been a half an hour since I uploaded it to my server in my root folder. Do I need this HTML code in the page_container?
Using a favicon
After generating a favicon with this tool download and save to the root directory of your site. Then include the following code in the head of your HTML document.
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
It is not required.
The favicon will show eventually.
Try force clearing your browser cache and deleting any bookmarks and bookmarking again.
Okay. Got it working in IE but I'm assuming FireFox may take longer. Thank you!
