Hi,

I am creating a website, and giving the following line in <Head> element, after creating the favicon.ico, but my favicon is not displaying. I've tried on Chrome and Explorer.

Also some sites display a .gif as favorite icon, which I've tried but it does not work.

Code:
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/icon" href="Favicon.ico">

Kindly help..

Sanjay.

Try <link rel="shortcut icon" type="./image/icon" href="Favicon.ico"> with the dot-slash.  Also, if you're testing the site and it's not displaying try emptying your cache.

Thanks, it worked after clearing the cache.
But ./ was not required, because my icon is in root folder, where index.html is saved. Therefore the code works as:

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/icon" href="Favicon.ico"/>

Solved!!

No problem.  Just make sure all other pages are in root if you're going to keep images/icon.

Good luck!
