    Default Favicon doesn't work

    Could someone please help me sort this out?

    I've done exactly what I'm supposed to do, but I just can't get the damn thing to show up when bookmarking, etc.

    You have placed the favicon here: http://www.froso.dk/test/favicon.ico
    but the link points to this: http://www.froso.dk/favicon.ico

    You can either place the favicon in the root directory (this is recommended since many browsers will pick it up directly), or, if you don't have the possibility to put it there, change you code to this:
    Code:
    <link href="/test/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon">
    or just this:
    Code:
    <link href="favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon">
    Since your folder is called test, I'm guessing you just made it to test the page or the favicon so you probably have access to the root directory. All you need to do then is to place the favicon in the root directory.

    Good luck!

    Dammit. I've upped the new site and are now LIVE.

    Somehow, though, the favicon won't show anymore.

    See here: http://froso.dk/index.html

    Can anyone see the problem anywhere!?

    I shows fine for me in all major browsers. Try clearing your cache. To be safe (and semantic), you could add this parameter to your code:
    Code:
    <link href="/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" />
    Good luck!

    Thanks, Snooker.

    Yeah, I tried clearing the temporary internet files and all that, refreshing and re-checking, but it won't show up in IE7.

    FF works fine, actually.

    Bleh.

    Ohh, IE7.. don't worry about that, it's a bug, the favicon disappears and reappears every now and then. Check back tomorrow and it might be there. Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do except hope your audience upgrades to IE8 (or a good browser) soon.
