NOVICE - Displaying and icon with IE7
Posted on 2006-10-28
I am building a website, which appears to be getting there. I now want to put a my own logo on the title bar. I have create a 16x16 icon set to 16 colours, which I will refined once I know how to use it.
I saved the icon as: favicon.ico
I was under the impression that if simply put this into the same folder as my html files - it should work automatically - I can't get it to. I have also tried inserting code with variations on the following:
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"/>
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"/>
Initially I thought that it could be something to do with IE7, but I suspect it is more likely to be me as when I go onto websites - the logos are present.
As mentioned this is all running locally, from a folder within MyDocs. Also I recently inserted some checking code for Flash versions, which I thought might be causing an issue, but again I don't think this is it.
I am sure it is something simple, but now need some help.
all the best.
