    Love this alternate version to Digg Digg (which I have now un-installed). However, it has deactivated my favicon? Is anyone else having this issue? What can I do about it?

    I have not seen this issue and just tested it on 2 different sites to see if I can re-create and cannot. Can you give the link to your site where the plugin is active so that I may dive in and figure out the issue? Also when you de-activate the plugin the favicon comes back?

    So, I also looked at it on Firefox, and its not an issue there. Seems to be a Chrome thing. My website is http://www.cooksmarts.com. I have not tried deactivating, but let me see if that changes anything.

    If your icon is still not showing in Chrome try the following:

    1. place your favicon.ico in both your theme directory and root of the website.
    2. Hold Shift and reload the page twice
    3. Your Icon should show up

    If the icon still does not show up:

    1. Leave the icons in both root and theme folder
    2. Add <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.cooksmarts.com/favicon.ico" /> to your header file.
    3. Hold Shift and reload twice
    4. Your icon should show up

    Let me know if either of these fix your problem and I will either continue to look into it or mark as resolved based on your answer.

    So this didn't work immediately but a few days later I have my favicon back. Seems like it's all fixed. Thx for the directions.

    No problem, enjoy the bar and let me know when there is anything else you notice. The only way for me to improve the bar is from input by users like you, thank you.
