I have followed the instructions of adding the favicon.ico to the Files Manager root. It shows it's there. I've added the code to the advanced setting. I've saved the web address to my bookmarks. What did I forget?

Hey Jennifer,

Which website did you add the favicon to so I can take a look?

Thanks,

Chris

Hi Jennifer,

It looked like your renamed the favicon from png, to ico which is why it wasn't registering. I used http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/ to recreate the icon and it started to appear.

Thanks!

Also, Chris, can you allow my account to use the desktop version, again. All of my sites were started with the original SiteBuilder, so hopefully there won't be a compatibility issue. I'm honestly TERRIFIED to make any changes to any other sites using the SiteBuilder Plus until Homestead staff irons out several glitches. I would like to work in the new version to learn but need the old standby for dependability. :-)

Your account has been updated to use either the desktop version or the online plus version. The next time you login, please click Websites Manager on the left and select the down arrow next to the Edit Site button. Here you will see the option to edit with Sitebuilder.

Thanks,

Chris

Chris,

Could you please help us with our favicon. The site is sendthemchicago.com. I've uploaded and published it, but I can't get the code to work.

Thank you.

UPDATE: I added the code to the index page Head Tag, and the favicon is appearing in preview mode. I understand that it may take a couple of days for it to appear in the live version. If you have any other information that would help I would appreciate it. The site is www.sendthemchicago.com. Thank you.

Brian
