    Question Favion won't show up

    I've made around 10 websites and I never had this problem. The favicon can't show up.
    Any ideas why? (I am talking about a new website of mine.)

    They can be a little bit pesky at first, but sometimes you just need to clear the browser or bookmark the site to get the favicon to show up. Or it could be that your code is not the best, or the favicon might be in the wrong place, or it may be the wrong file type ... We need more info.

    Sure, there is nothing to hide about it. It's a new site (a few days old) and we're trying to make it well. If you need to see the source code -- here we go: http://zashto-triabva-da-kupim-acer-ot-notebook-bg.com/. The favicon code:
    Code:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="www.zashto-triabva-da-kupi-acer-ot-notebook-bg.com/pics/favicon.ico" />
    .
    Thank you for your answer. I'll be waiting for yours new answers.

    You have a whole bunch of meta elements inside the <body> section of your page. They need to be up in the <head> section.

    I understand. Thank you.
    Done.
    But the favicon is still "invisible"... Anyway, thank you for the valuable lesson about the <head> and <body>, sir!

    HTML Code:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="www.zashto-triabva-da-kupi-acer-ot-notebook-bg.com/pics/favicon.ico" />
    Instead of the above link, try adding these two links:

    HTML Code:
      <link href='/pics/favicon.ico' type='image/x-icon' rel='shortcut icon' />
      <link href='/pics/favicon.ico' type='image/x-icon' rel='icon' />
