    Question Icons in address bar

    Hello,
    I would like to know how to change the icon in the address bar in Internet Explorer to a custom icon.

    I have it working in firefox, but will not work in Internet Explorer. I'm not the only one as many sites now have this custom icon but will not work in IE. This is the code I have for the icon:

    <script src="flashobject.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.bcroadsafe.com/images/icon/Tcpsign1.ICO" />
    <script src="JSlib.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    Any suggestons would be great.
    Thanks

    change the name to favicon.ico and upload it to your root directory.

    Re: Icons in address bar

    Ok, maybe its me or not.
    I have chaged the file to favicon.ico and changed the location of the file to html folder. I'm not sure if thats the "root" folder you where talking about.
    I checked my host directory (var/www/) I have f older called "icons" but I cant upload anything to that folder its protected. only the (var/www/html) will late me upload to.

    Re: Icons in address bar

    I did some research, looks like I am a little too "old school "

    This is what is suggested for the best compatibility
    <link rel="icon" href="http://example.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://example.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

    Re: Icons in address bar

    Well that code dosen't work either still only works in firefox.
    I guess IE don't like icons in the address bar, but the follwoing site is only only site that I've seen it work:

    If you have any other suggestions that would be great. If not I guess I'll leave it for now.

    Re: Icons in address bar

    This is what I had to put in my masterpage to get everything working in safari, explorer and firefox:

    <link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="favicon1.ico" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

    Rather that going through options menu to refresh the cache of our browser, you can opt to re-load pages by just pressing combinations of ctrl + sheift and f5.

    The problem for me was the caching of the web pages. I was battling with this for a while, but got it working pretty well.

    You can test mine out at the following link:

    Hello,

    If you want to change the icon in the address then you have to change the image from the root directory.

    Thanks
