  • Strange favicon issue in IE8

    Hi all,
    i have for my choise, leave vbulletin 4 and installed the last version of vbulletin 3.

    My question is about the favicon.ico.

    I have puted my 16X16 favicon.ico image in the root directory and when i visit that page , the favicon is showed without problems with FF - IE8 and Chrome. In the forum homepage the favicon is not showed. So i have puted my favicon.ico in the forum root too , but still don't showed, initially. With Firefox after some minutes the favicon is showed on the forum too, but in ie nothing. I have tryed to visit my home page (not the forum homepage) with IE 8 and the favicon is showed , nothing in the forumhomepage. So i have insert this code in my headinclude tpl:
    Code:
    <LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://www.myforum.net/forum/favicon.ico">
    And Still don't showed in IE.

    The vbulletin "v" favicon it was not showed too.... :S

    Someone can suggest me a working solution?



    Thanks

    Solved adding this line in my headinclude template (very bottom):
    Code:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://mydomain.net/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    I hope that this is a correct line for the vbulletin headinclude tpl.

      Close it properly:
      Code:
      <link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="http://mydomain.net/favicon.ico" />

        I wonder if IE9 has changed in that regard. I haven't upgraded yet.
