Does anyone see my favicon? I tried it in IE8 and Firefox but don't see it. It's only on this one page because I was testing it. Maybe someone can tell me why I can't see it... http://youcanneverbetoosmart.synthasi...

Hey Donald

Replace your favicon code with this one to have a cross browser favicon...

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="resources/animated_favicon1.gif">

Sorry Chief...

You gotta put it in an HTML widget and cancel out the favicon in your site builder side bar... ;)

Its a great looking favicon Donald...

There is an issue with IE not showing animated GIF's as favicons so that might be an issue but it is up to you if you want to use a .ico file or a .gif

The code will work cross browser if you use an .ico file...

In FF it is a non moving image
Crome it is a non moving image
IE it is not present

Try this rendition of the gif to get movement in FF. Just right click to save and then upload in your favicons place in your file manager.



For some reason yours is not functioning...

My preference is always to show it and leave the animation to the page ;)
