View Full Version : favicon

12-15-2013, 03:12 AM
I may have asked this in the past but I cant find much on it via search.

my favicon shows up fine in FF, but not in chrome, safari, opera, etc...

<link rel="icon" href="http://www.bugorama.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.bugorama.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

I added the full path to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated. this did work once upon a time (over a year ago) but with all I can find the code is correct.

i'm guessing it's probably because it's an animated gif masqerading as an ico file ;) not all browsers support animated favicons. (they're a bit distracting to be honest)

when you say it worked do you mean in all browsers?? maybe browser support has been dropped

have a look at this page if it's any more use https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Favicon&oldid=503083924#File_format_support

you might have to save it as a gif and link to it as such if you really want an animated favicon, but pretty sure it will still have limited browser support ;)

Thanx... that was the customers request. assumed it was probably dropped support with recent updates. I will have to convince them to go with something else or live with it
