    Default Favicon Issue

    Bluehost's favicon keeps reappearing even after i delete it on my site (http://www.vipercreations.com). its not linked in any of my pages too.
    no matter how many times i delete it, it still comes back, to all of my 4 sites hosted with you guys.

    what do i do?

    Default both methods?

    I tried just using the 1st method (favicon.ico in the root directory) but that did not seem to do the trick. So, I tried using the 2nd method as well (adding the link in the <head> section) and voila! It worked!

    I now have my own, somewhat lame, personalized site logo!

    Good luck!

    i use this method in the <head> of all documents, and put the favicon.ico file in ALL directories that serve html/php..

    <head>
    <link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    <other head stuff>
    </head>

    Unhappy favicon cached somewhere???

    I tried changing my icon but with no joy. The icon image seems to be cached somewhere on my machine (winXP). I tried clearing the firefox cache but still no joy.:confused:

    Oh... I also noticed that the icon does not show up at all on IE6??

    The icon was made using the editor under Visual Studio.net 2003.

    Any ideas?

    I had the same issue, but I was able to resolve it by placing the favicon.ico file in the cgi-bin directory right under the webroot (placing it directly under the webroot did nothing). Maybe that will do the trick for you too? You can always check my directing to www.yoursite.com/favicon.ico

    Prior to IE8, favicons are only supported in the .ico format. Lame, I know, especially when it takes the bulk of internet-users so long to upgrade. :\

    In the meantime, sites like this can easily create .ico files for you: http://www.favicon.cc/
