Note my favicon:
I had been meaning to add a favicon (note the icon next to my address in the address bar on your browser) for quite some time, but hadn’t gotten around to it. The last time I tried to create something in the .ico format, I needed a special tool.
But then again, times change. I used the GIMP to make the .ico file and posted it to the root of my webserver directory.
Nothing happened when I refreshed the page.
Then I found out that I needed to tell Apache about .ico files, so I put the following in my
AddType image/x-icon .ico
Make sure that the favicon.ico file has the executable bit set for everyone:
and now it will show up.
You might need to clean out your cache and restart your browser to see it. Evidently this feature "sticks" to web pages.
