    Yes i got it thanx, the problem was my header.php file doesnt have the <header> part so i had tu find it through the theme files.

    It was located on a file called start.php inside templates directory of the iNove theme.

    I can’t figure out where to drop that code either! And there is no start.php in the template file under theme either. Any advice?

    Try looking for header.php in your theme.

    Yeah, put it in there and it isn’t showing up.

    Give it time…

    Aric – The way to do this is as follows:-

    1. Create FAVICON as *.ico file.

    2. Upload your FAVICON to */wordpress/wp-content/themes/inove/img/ directory.

    3. Remember no upper case letters, no spaces and only *.ico files.

    4. Copy your FAVICON file name (from step No.2).

    5. Replace XXX with your FAVICON file name in the following code. <link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”<?php bloginfo(‘template_directory’); ?>/img/XXX.ico” type=”image/x-icon” />

    6. Open your theme editor and select Header (header.php)
    – wp-admin/theme-editor.php?file=/themes/inove/templates/header.php&theme=iNove&a=te

    7. Go to the end of the code. You will see <!– navigation END –>

    9. Now drop this line of code – before the <!– navigation END –>

    10. Save changes. You will see the FAVICON.

    Awesome! Thank you! Mystery solved!

    According to ClaytonJames’s posted link ( http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Favicon ), I followed the procedure to create my favicon and uploaded it to my theme (classic) main folder AND my site’s main folder. Then I added the code with my favicon name changed to my header.php file. The result is a success for my site with my favicon shown in browser, but my favicon is not shown when I open my site’s rss feed. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks
