Favicon trouble

Post by briztian »

I hope I am not posting this under the wrong forum.

I have read many topics on favicons and followed the examples and am still unable to get it to show up.

My main site http://briztian.com/forum has the favicon in the main directory and shows up. When I go to the forum it doesn't show up.

I uploaded a new favicon to the forum styles directory http://briztian.com/distribution/styles ... avicon.ico which works and have edited the overall header a few different ways and refreshed 2 different browsers and the forums cache many times, but still nothing.

Any suggestions

Didn't work. I am guessing that it has something to do with me using a bridge from Joomla to phpbb.

Could be my code in overall header:

Code: Select all

<title>{SITENAME} &bull; <!-- IF S_IN_MCP -->{L_MCP} &bull; <!-- ELSEIF S_IN_UCP -->{L_UCP} &bull; <!-- ENDIF -->{PAGE_TITLE}</title>

<link rel="icon" href="http://briztian.com/distribution/styles/BlackSmoke/imageset/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"/>
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http:/briztian.com/distribution/styles/BlackSmoke/imageset/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

It's a browser cache problem.

I was clearing browser caches left and right, but still pulling my hair out.

I'm not absolutely certain which cache it was that the clearing of did the trick, but if you open your site up in another browser (that you never use, and has no bookmarks or caches of you site) you will at least be able to see that the favicon will appear for other people, and that it is in fact the browser's cache that is the issue, and not the code.

A couple of things that you can do that may help:

1. Clear all caches, close and reopen your browser.
2. Navigate to http://YOURSITE.com/favicon.ico (or wherever your favicon is) so that the favicon appears in the browser window, refresh the page, then navigate back to your forum index.
