Home Forums CSS Favicon not showing up in IE. Re: Favicon not showing up in IE.


Good points, – – I’ve made a fair amount of (multi-resolution) favicons, and for whatever reason, IE is stubborn to show them. Rarely, they show up right away for me, – – but sometimes they take up to several days. They do eventually show, though. Seems like on most other browsers they show immediately. Having your favicon located right in your root directory rather than a folder will allow it much better odds with IE, and the image path can be simply ‘yourfavicon.ico’ . . . P.S. It doesn’t have to named ‘favicon’, any name is fine, – – as long as it’s an ‘ico’ file.
