Default Favicon

Hi Guys,

I am trying to add a favicon to my website, I have done this before on another website. The Favicon was created using http://www.favicon.co.uk I have tried to add as usual - File - site properties - Options - browse - choose image .ico file and I get 'There was an error loading the icon file' ?

Any ideas?

Thanks guys.

Craig

Hi Craig,

As noted here, the favicon.co.uk site seems to create PNG files, not ICO files. Try one of the other sites mentioned in that thread (favicon.cc or favicon.htmlkit.com).

Hi AlfredP,

I have tried this and it let me add it via webplus, however, after an upload it still does not display? Not sure what is wrong with it?

Thanks Craig

Have a look www.feelfreewebdesign.co.uk

Oh yes it does... at least for me in Chrome. Looks like your portrait.

It displays for me also. Have you tried clearing your cache?
