shortcut icon - explorer?

by goodfly » Mon Dec 06, 2010 5:20 pm

Hello everyone,

my shortcut icon works with Firefox and Opera, but does not show up when browsing with Explorer. Why is that? What can I do about that?

<link href="favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" >

Thanks for any advice!

cheers,
goodfly

The code looks ok. Try to clear the Explorer cache and history information.

Try to clear all temporary files etc.: http://www.earthnet.net/support/general ... che.htm#ie
It might do the trick.

I have changed the icon size from 16x15 to 16x16 (992 bytes). Added " />" to the code.. cleared cache, cookies, history... restarted..

Strange. Maybe it's a bug in IE9 beta. If you post a link I'll be happy to test it Internet Explorer 7/8.

It's not working in IE 7 & 8.

How did you make the favicon? It seems to 28x30px. I believe it has to be a square (16x16 or 32x32 px)?

You might try to create a new and see if that help. You can use a online generator: http://www.favicon.cc/
