More information on favicon
After you’ve created a neat favicon, it’s time to add it to your site. To do so, follow the below simple procedure:
- Upload the generated file (“favicon.ico”) to your site. Verify it’s there by typing http://mysite.com/favicon.ico in the browser’s location, where “mysite.com” is your site’s address.
- Next, insert the below code in the HEAD section of your pages, at the very least, your site’s main index page:
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico">
- That’s it! Note that your favicon may not appear immediately after you’ve completed the above two steps. In fact, it may take a few days, and in IE, sometimes the favicon will disappear from time to time due to a browser bug.
