Think i've broken my favicon :( help please

  • Updated 8 years ago
The other night I experimented with the Favicons. I did read that for some reason IE doesn't show some favicons or that they have to be .ico files. I read one of Eds tutorials but I went to the favicon generator and not sure how I did it but it was so simple and yep, I did get a favicon (using IE) and even though my site is not published, when I "previewed" the page I put the favicon on it was there, I even had 2 other people check it with the preview link I gave them while I was online, they both saw it fine and now it's broken :(

I wanted to try some others and choose which i'd stay with, they won't show up even for me when I preview and the original one which I can actually still see on my front page my friends can no longer see it....

Any ideas what I did wrong?

I even tried deleting the favicons out of my file manager and doing them over again but still no luck. I really thought I'd nailled something first go when I saw my awesome dragon favicon on the first try.....

Thank you in advance because i'd like to try these others to see which suits my site better :)

Shanon if you changed your favicon while Yola is experiencing the little glitch your favicon file even while deleted and replaced might not work until you can update your website and you cannot do that until the DOS problem is figured out.

Give this one a break until they get our sites back up...

Ed I am trying to get to your website to use your contact form with the preview URL but I just keep getting "Internet Explorer cannot display the page" :( I've had this all day long wherever I go, not just here.

I was googling something this morning and I undoubtly hit a bad site and my virus protection screamed at me, yup, 2 malware and 2 trojans :( sent them off fast to quarantine then ran complete scan and found 2 more somethings but this IE problem is becoming a real nuisance.

When I can get to your site I will send you the link. Don't be surprised to still see my store not there :( I'm really dreading tackling that.....

Cheers for now.

My favicon is still broken regardless :( Since my last post over 24 hours ago and the Dos done with i've tried and tried and tried with no luck :(

The original favicon is showing on the front page, I deleted the one I put on another page (just to see what it looked like) then I created 3 more and uploaded, they are .ico but NO they won't show except for the original on the front page.

I'm at a losss as to why.
