    My favicon works in all of the explorers but IE9. So, what must I do to display it also in IE9?


    Please try to upload the favicon.ico into the main wordpress directory (where the wp-content, wp-admin and wp-includes folders can be found). As an alternative you can use plugins like:


    I did all things that you told about this issue, but still the problem is going on.

    1- I placed this code in Header.php : <link rel=”icon” href=”” type=”image/png” />

    under the code: <!– title –>

    <title><?php if (is_home()) { bloginfo(‘name’); ?><?php } elseif (is_category() || is_page() ||is_single()) { ?> <?php } ?><?php wp_title(”); ?></title>

    2- I also uploaded my favicon.ico to images folder where also the skins of theme are. (Newscast>images)

    3-I downloaded All In One Favicon plugin and set it up. And then by using its settings I uploaded my favicon.ico (by using frontend ico box)

    4-I also uploaded my favicon.ico where you told (wp-content, wp-admin etc. folders can be found)

    Also I deleted the default red sun favicon.ico from there

    Totally my favicon problem is still going on. What must I do next or what I did wrong?

    PS: It doesn’t work in none of explorers yet.


    Now it works, but it is still not working in Chrome.


    I just tested your website with chrome and it seems to work fine:


    Oh no… oh no… this red spot isn’t my own favicon. So it doesn’t work….


    My favicon has to be seen like this:


    Hi sulker,

    I just checked your site using IE9 and I can see the right favicon. Kindly clear your browser cache. :)




    In this case please try to replace:

    <link rel="icon" href="" type="image/png" />


    <link rel="icon" href="" type="image/x-icon" />

    and check your image/icon path – gives me a 404 not found error.


    Thanks Dude. It works on Chrome now. My theme name “Newscast” is listed in themes file with beginning capital letter “N” as “Newscast”. I fixed it by changing it to “newscast” . Have a look now please and let me know if you are still see the same error. That’s why you take “404 not found” error I think. Also I did the changes you wrote above.

    Thank at all…



    Yes, it works fine now.

    Best regards,
