I downloaded the ICO file format plugin for CS5 from:
Favicon - How To Create A Favicon.ico | PhotoshopSupport.com
I then set about creating my new little favicon, and inserted the new HTML code into my source code......
<link href="favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon">
(Just out of interest can somebody clarify whether or not the closing tag should infact be there as the code given from the URL above just has a > and not /> , either way neither variation works for IE9 )
.......directly inbetween the <head> </head> tags & loaded the page up in the latest version of Safari / Opera & Firefox and my little icon is sitting up there nice and pretty, but then I go to open it up in IE9 and its not there ??
Ive read you have to put another line of code in which is :
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
You can also include the line of code which I first mentioned above to accompany it but this still does not work... I was thinking is it anything to do with the fact that the site is offline ? 1 reason to quash that thought is it works in 3 other browsers offline so why not IE9 ?
Again any help greatly appreciated
