    no, you can read. what the f*ck? why should ANYONE have to spend their time re-writing something that is already available to you? Are you too damn lazy to click 2 links.

    FFS. Get a babysitter if thats what your deal is.

    Won't you just follow the link whooami gave you? And read it? Instead of just complaining and whining of why the answer wasn't SPOON-FED to you. Come on, you're not a toddler. Learn how to feed yourself instead of being fed.

    I'm wondering if you had a IQ=0 moment.

    [Edit]: Just read Whooami's comment. Nice one! :D

    dude, what are you two, obnoxious trolls that like picking on new people because they've got nothing better to do than complain?
    well, F*** you both then.

    ...picking on new people because they've got nothing better to do that complain?

    you hit the nail right on the head. You have nothing better to do than complain. Youre welcome for your support -- do come again.

    Wow.. I thought this was a help forum. Why are people irritated when someone asks a question. If you were working in a store.. let's say Macy's, and someone asked you where the bathroom was and there was a store directory right in front of them, would you get pissed off and tell them, "HELOOO! There's a freaking diretory right there, READ IT." Umm.. no, you probably wouldn't want to do that.. because it's rude. People who are not familiar with this forum shouldn't be treated like children just because they don't use the search first.. assist them to use the search, don't yell at them.

    no-one was yelled at. and this isnt Macys. this is a support forum for free software run by volunteers -- and additionally, garo isnt unfamiliar with the forum.

    Forgive, but using the search before asking is a common practice in all forums, not only here. And reading the documentation before using a software should be also a common practice.

    Hi all, I have to agree with the above comments, its essential to search as the vast majority of these type of questions have answers in previous posts. Also, never forget our good friend google.
    This for example from google.
    Results 1 - 10 of about 10,100,000 for favicon.

    Once again I'd like to point out that the question asked had nothing to do with WordPress. How to use a favivon is an HTML question and is done the same whether you're using WP, some other blog program, or plain old HTML.

    Yep precisely. We're not being mean, but not using the Search function and post meaningless question that hog the precious WordPress.org system resources is a definite no-no. Haven't the 'search before you post' rule in effect for most forums online?

    Plus, thisisedie is right about favicon having nothing to do with WordPress. There are a hell lot of favicon tutorials out there. Looks like he didn't even bother to Google it. Wow.

    how, garo, did you get ur answer? here it is: http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Favicon (if you're 2.8.4 it for sure works -- note, view your handiwork in a different browser to avoid the complicated step of flushing your wp cache); also, this worked in a different wp blog for me: <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">...not sure how both codes can be similarly effective.
