I uploaded my favicon via the Appearance interface of my Drupal theme. It shows up in Chrome and Firefox, but not IE.


How can I get it to display in IE 7+ ?

It may just be cached, try clearing the cache or do a hard refresh or visit the image directly.

Be sure that you are using an .ico file and not a .png, .gif, .bmp, etc. You must use an ico file for IE.
