Can you tell me what browser you are using?

Internet Explorer doesn't allow favicons to be displayed next to your URL or on the tab of the window. The favicon is displayed if the site is bookmarked and in the Favorites folder. Change to Firefox and you will see your favicons in all three areas.

If you are using Firefox and your favicon is still not displaying, please let me know.

Is this still the case with IE, I've been wondering what I was doing wrong!

Hello Rizan,

here's something that will help

Transcript of a posting by Ed.

The built in favicon generator in the site builder presently only supports the Firefox browser. That's why you may not be able to see your favicon in IE or another browser.Here is a cross browser code for favicons. I have used it for some time myself...

I am presently using this code on my site and as you see it is cross browser compatible... http://honeybearplayhomes.synthasite....

1) Upload your favicon to your file manager. (If you already created one with the built in generator then you may not need to make another as it is already in your file manager.)

Edit the following code as follows...
1) You just need to substitute "YOURSITEHERE" in the code below with your site name
2) Chage the "favicon" to your favicon name in the code
3) Highlight the code between the <!-- & --> and copy
4) Open a HTML widget on your page in your editor and paste into it the code you have created
5) Update your site



<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://YOURSITEHERE.synthasite.com/re...>


Here is an easy favicon generator if you wish to make one from an image.

Tee hee.. just like you Rizan.. we learn by asking lots of questions too! =) I was clueless about stuff like that. I've really learned a lot from being on this forum. I'm still learning soo much!
