    Favicon Code

    Hi.

    I have added the favicon to my root folder but it doesn't appear on the browser. Do I need any code on the page for it work?

    It can also take a browser a while to catch on to a favicon. Doing something like bookmarking the page can help kick it along.

    And Chrome can be particularly stubborn. You can check your favicon is all set up here: http://www.seositecheckup.com/favicon.php

    That's pretty nifty.

    But yeah, it can take a second for it to populate.
