I've searched on "how to create a bookmark/URL icon" and came across the EE post:
I believe I've followed the directions of the (accepted) answers:
1. I download a 16x16 ico (sample) from http://thefavicongallery.com/
2. I placed the .ico file in my root directory (where my index.html file resides)
3. Added the following code to my index.html file (between head tags)
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
Unfortunately, the icon does not show in the URL or bookmark. When clicking on the small "white box" (using Firefox Mozilla browser), I get the following pop-up window.
"This website does not supply identify information." Well, for testing purposes, I've checked Verizon.net (my ISP) and they show the same info "Website does not supply..."; however, their company logo shows up.
What could be the cause for not displaying the favicon.ico file?
