Support » Fixing WordPress » Favicon not appearing in Safari and IE

    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.

    Thanks to both of you–works great!
