[resolved] Favicon not appearing in Safari and IE (4 posts)

    I created a favicon at http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/.

    I uploaded the favicon yesterday to my images folder and added the code <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.margaretandzach.com/Images/favicon.ico" /> to my header..

    The Favicon appears on Firefox 2.0.03 on my Mac (running OSX 10.4.9), but not on Safari or IE on a PC (I emptied my caches on both).

    favicons to be displayed in ie, need to be in the web_root of your site.

    1. Quit Safari.

    2. Open ~/Library/Safari/ and trash the Icons folder (which is where favicons are stored).

    The Icons folder will regenerate when you relaunch Safari and your favicon will now appear in Safari's address bar.
