Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: favicon problems...

    favicon problems...

    i tried to set a favicon up on my site, but it didn't work. so i've prety much given up on it.

    however, a new problem has arisen.

    i've got a setup where if a page or image that doesn't exist, it sends me an email with the error, as well as a custom error page if its a mis-spelt link or something.

    anyway, i removed all trace of code from the only page that had the favicon on it, so therefore, no favicon should try to be loaded. but yet i still get error messages.

    removed the favicon image from the server, no difference, i then put it back on the server..but yet the error messages get more common. and its not regulary either...they either come once every site visit, or about 6 million in one go. and "favicon.ico" comes up as a page visit on the stats page i got...

    any ideas on how to stop this?

    seems to only appear when someone on firefox access's the page.

    no other browsers seem to cause the error

    i can't recall IE ever showing favicons (except as bookmarks) so it's a mozilla/firefox thingy. I was thinking perhaps people viewing cached versions of your page might still send emails, but your script is most likely server-side and thus not cached.

    I'd google for firefox&favicons I get bugs/weird features sometimes (such as picture thumbs as favicons)

    nothing like getting spammed by your own server..
