Which program are you using? SiteBuilder Plus or the new Websitebuilder

Yes, can you tell us which site you are working on? I am not sure which instructions you were following.

Presumably you've created your favicon and have the code snippet for it and have imported the image. If not, you can go to www.dynamicdrive.com Click on Favicon Generator and follow the instructions. Once you have done the above then Click on Page Settings > Advanced > Paste the code into the <head> tag HTML  box.

The code I've pasted is:

Does that seem right?

  < link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" >

No space after the < or before the >   I had to do it that way in order for it to show up in here.

Do you mean that there should be a space after the < or before the >?

Thanks by the way...

No spaces in either place. In other words don't copy and paste that code without removing the spaces or it won't work for you.

And you're quite welcome.  :)
