Getting Rid of an Old Favicon (4 posts)

    To give you the low-down, I shift web hosts in order to use Word Press. I also managed to get my site sort of up and running despite a lack of support from my new host (a very long story). However, it seems that I have inherited a URL address bar favicon from my old website. Does anybody know how to find this document so that I can replace it with a spiffy new one?

    favicon.ico files are usally in root, but if it came over from your old host, it might be in the theme folder.

    Unfortunately, this favicon is really hard to track down. If you look briefly at my website, you will see that hideous thing in the URL bar. The original name (when I was using my old host with my old design) was "favicon." But I cannot find it anywhere.

    That's the browser default favicon because you don't have a favicon at all. Use Firebug with Firefox, or in Chrome or Safari or IE8, use the developer tools to see what's loading on your site and you'll see a 404 for favicon.ico.
