    Red face Favicon still not recognized in Safari

    With all respect and appreciation: Is it too much to ask, that you also place a favicon.ico in the root directory ?

    I like our favicon. I asked about favicons before, and my inquiry resulted in a contest, the winner of which is our lovely image.

    I'd like to see the favicon in Safari, which is not a pefect browser, but a nice one.

    I will see if the page headers can be customized to use the more modern implementaion. I'll wait until after the dust settles a bit, firsst.

    I'm not an expert, but on my humble site, there is no reference to the favicon.ico in any of the HTML, on any pages.

    It's mere presence in the root directory guarantees that browsers discover it and render it appropriately.

    Perhaps PHP is different ?

    I'm running Safari on 10.4.5 and 10.4.6, and seeing the favicon (camera on a tripod with red belows, right). What version of Safari and OS-X are you running?

    Re: Favicon still not recognized in Safari

    I am running OSX 10.4.6 and Safari Version 2.0.3 (417.9.3).

    I frequently get all the updates from Apple, so all my software is up-to-date.

    Am I the only one who can't see the favicon ?

    I can't see it either (same OS and Safari as Ken). As a matter of fact, I didn't even know it existed...

    Didn't someone mention before that we should convert the image from PNG to ICO format? Perhaps that's the problem.

    Ken - ditto to your specs on osx/safari, I get the red camera/tripod.

    As far as I know, the standard is .ico

    Here is a web site that allows you to instantly generate a favicon.ico from any file you want, for free. It's trivial.

    See http://www.chami.com/html-kit/services/favicon

    PROBLEM SOLVED

    I went to Applications/Safari/Icons and deleted all the sub-folders. Now, when I visit this site, I see the favicon, as it is.

    Many thanks !!!
