What is a favicon? A favicon is a small icon (16x16 px) in a browser address bar (near the url of your website). All uCoz websites have the following default favicon:



How to replace the default icon by a custom one?

http://faq.ucoz.com/faq/29-1#220


If this explanation is not enough then follow the steps below:

  • Download or create (by means of special programs) an icon - .ico file 16x16 px.

  • Name it favicon.ico.

  • Upload this icon to File Manager or via FTP to the root folder of your website (the first folder where you see the original favicon.ico). You don't need to delete the original icon, just upload a new one and the old one will be replaced automatically.

  • If you have done everything correctly, then you will be able to view a new icon at _http://your_site.ucoz.com/favicon.ico. Go to your website and refresh the page. If the icon hasn't changed, clear browser's cache or simply wait for some time.


IE may not display the icon. To solve this problem try to paste the following code between < head> and < /head>:

Code
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">                   
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

I placed my favicon in a few weeks ago and now all of a sudden it isn't there? Like it diapered from there. It is still loaded where it was but it is not changing or using it. Any ideas?

Did you named your favicon correct? Did you upload it in correct place?

Hi Every Body !
By Favicon i mean The website icon which displays b4 U.R.L and in Bookmarks of Explorer
I Have Tried Many Things By My Self and i had Success in it but This Sticky Favicon is Difficult For Me To fix

Actualy i did Created My Icon File and i Searched All About it like

* It must be of 16 * 16 in size
* The Colours Must Be 256 colour
* The Name Should be favicon.ico
* Must Be Uploaded To Root Folder Replaces automaticaly the old one

Here Is The Link to software to create icons Icon Suite icon creator you cam also import images(Yes You Need WinRAR)

Dear Friends now the problem i Face is the i cant see favicon on my site "Main Page" & Other Pages
e.g Main Page " you can check"

But it Displays on "Site Info" Page
Site Info Page Check it!

Now I am not getting the proble Even the "Main page" and "SiteInfo" page are of same page editer coding they are not module sets but why it does so or it needs time

Dont Forget I Also Copied This Source Code To My Page Editor <header> section for favicon

<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="favicon.ico">

Thanks in Advance

It does work.
You just have to wait a while for the icon to appear, as it's stated in the first post.
