Having favicon.ico instead of IE.ico on a website

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Patrick Olurotimi Ige, Dec 9, 2004.

  1. I have an icon called favicon.ico that i created for a website and it
    WORKS but u have to first bookmark the page
    before u see the ICON in the URL instead of the IE icon!

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

    But is it possible for users to see it without first Adding the page to
    the favorites!!...
    Any ideas..

    It is not possible in Internet Explorer. Some other browsers do show the
    shortcut icon in the address bar even if the page is not bookmarked (e.g.
    Firefox).

    Hope this helps
