I have made a web icon 'favicon' and placed it in the root directory (In this case '../Public_html/' but the icon doesn't seem to appear when i load the page I even put in the head of my HTML script
'<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="../public_html/favicon.ico">'
Can anyone help?
Could you provide a testcase ?
Remove the /public_html part and it should work, something like this:
<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="favicon.ico">'
Its a microsoft product thats the prob, i dunnotry running it through the W3C HTML validator it will say if the code is not compatible with a browser
I believe it only works when you save the page that has that code in your bookmarks. I don't think it will work if you don't have it in your bookmarks already.
Why is the favicon not appearing in IE? I tried viewing my webpage in Mozilla Firefox and the icon appeared but it's suppose to appear in IE not in Mozilla.
you can say that but IE like IE than other browsers.
