    HELP : About favicon.ico

    Need Help

    I am a newbie in creating a site.I have done in making a favicon.ico imgge.

    I am using a wordpress theme name "twentyten".I uploaded the image by using smart ftp into my current themes w/c is "twentyten":

    public_html/wp-content/themes/twentyten/images/

    But after I am done uploading, I see NO effect.I couldn't see my favicon.And the word press said I need to go to "Editor" from my themes and go to "header.php" and find the word:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" and ends with /favicon.ico" />

    And replace it with:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/favicon.ico" />

    But I couldn't find the word that they want me too.And the only words I found was this word:

    <link rel="profile" href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="<?php bloginfo( 'stylesheet_url' ); ?>" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo( 'pingback_url' ); ?>" />

    Simply place favicon.ico in /public_html/. Browsers will pick it up.

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

    this should place the favicon on your page

    change this
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/favicon.ico" />

    to
    <link rel="icon"
    type="image/png"
    href="/images/favicon.png" />

    Make sure you have placed favicon.png image in your websites images folder and it will work.
    Optimize the size of favicon to 32X32 before implementing the above.
