    Happy New Year!
    I am trying to add an icon to my URL so it will display in my address bar.
    At: www.equipmentpolice.com, I have inserted at the fifth line: <LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://www.equipmentpolice.com/ep.ico">
    But nothing is showing.
    Is this coded correctly?

    Thanks,
    Jack

    Firstly, if your using IE it will only show in IE5+.
    Secondly, you need the <link rel=> in every page that you would want the ico file to be shown.
    Thirdly, the icon should be 16 by 16 pixels
    Lastly, the filename should be less than 8 chars, which your is.

    easy way:

    name it favicon.ico. If you have half-decent hosting it will automatically put it up.

    Thanks Squeak!
    I tried that. As you can see: www.equipmentpolice.com/favicon.ico , it's loaded.
    I removed the code too, but still NG.
    Your thoughts. .

    If you look in the link I gave up there you will see it says the .ico file must be 16*16 pixels. Your .ico file is 32*32.

    Hope that helps
