I can't change my favicon (2 posts)

    I am trying to upload a new favicon.

    I recently switched from just host (they previously had a JH favicon displaying in my browser for the blog - http://www.thehairychef.com.

    I found a previous question on this and uploaded my new favicon (labeled favicon.ico) which I believe I resized correctly to 16x16 pixels (in fact I resized the icon in picassa to 256 pixels (which i assume makes it 16x16).

    following the other post I added:

    <link rel="icon" href="http://www.thehairychef.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

    under <head> in header.php.

    As far as I can tell the favicon hasn't changed - not can I find the old favicon in my home directory to delete it - so I don't really know where its coming from or if I have the code wrong.

    Any ideas?

  2. When I click on the favicon link in the source code, I can't see it.
    I've always have trouble with these unless I use a favicon maker like this one - http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/
    For some reason, when i use this tool, the favicon somehow works.
