I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..
Ok - it *appears* to be working ok now - I *think*.
Well it's working on my machine.
Can a few more ppl look and see if they have any luck?.
I just had someone else look at it who said it wasnt working..
I didn't get it on win2000 and IE6, but then again mine at my iPage site doesn't work either on this machine. if you have favicon.ico in the root folder it will work for 90% of all users. notice I said 90%.....
IE automatically looks for it on load of the site...
It appears to be working in some cases, but not others..
Not like it's really a big deal anyways - just a bit of a gimmick..
Running Win2k and IE6..
I wouldn't call it a gimmick. It catches my eye when I go through my bookmarks and see all of these icons. Besides, it adds a little bit of *oooo* factor and professionalism...
Well, I havent seen what that iPage site tells you to do, but in my iPage site I use a very simple code(one line):.
Hope it helps...
Theoretically you don't even need that. IE by default looks for it. not sure if NS or others can use that link tag..
Hmmm something to experiement with...
Also, it should be noted that if anyone here shares ISP then they may have retrieved a cached page (if someone went to your iPage site earlier). After a couple of days though everyone should get the favicon (I think)...
