    My favicon doesn’t seem to be showing up and I’m not sure what’s wrong. Here’s what I did:

    1. Created my favicon.ico at
    2. Downloaded the created favicon.ico file to my computer
    3. Uploaded the created favicon.ico to my root directory: which shows up in the favicon location when you visit the link.
    4. Inserted the following code in my header.php:

    After some poking around on google I found the following Favicon Validator (and others) and it tells me everything is good to go as well.

    I should also point out that although my favicon doesn’t show up, the wordpress favicon is gone and there’s a box with a dotted border in it’s place.

    What am I missing?


    Not sure if this is your problem but some times I find you either have to visit the image directly and then go back to your site for it to display or clear your browser cache.


    Thanks for the suggestion Mike, but after trying both it’s still not loading (for me). Did it load for you?


    It’s loading fine for me. Try clearing your cache.


    Tried clearing the cache again and this time it worked. Thanks.


    If your favicon is not showing on Safari only you also need to go to the safari library and delete the icon database, that did it for me =)
