Hi, I had no problem making my favicon work with


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

It works with firefox but doesn't work in IE. I tried putting the icon in my web app's root directory along with my index.jsp. Still didn't work... I also tried renaming it to "favicon.ico" but still didn't work... Can you guys give me a clue please? Thanks you!

Did you call <link rel="icon"> too ?

See the guidelines here:

I just did it now... Nothing changed though... But thanks! Anyway... I was wondering if what I did is ok. What I did was change the .gif image to .ico. I edited the image using photoshop.

The format of the ICO file might not be supported.
How did you save it ?

I saved it first as a .gif format. Then I renamed it to .ico(through windows explorer shell, by changing its extension name).

Oh. You have to convert it to an ico file, with a tool.
There are a few in the page I have posted above.

This has nothing to do with JSP. Please take the time to identify the apprpriate forum for your questions.

In order for IE to show it, the site has to be in your favorites.
