I cannot add a favicon
NicoSlafter (1)

I am working on a website for my discord bot. I haven’t started anything except adding a GIF I know i’ll keep. I tried to find videos, they didn’t work. Anyone who can help, let me know in the comments and i’ll give you perms to edit.

In your <head> element:

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

@RohilPatel Oh, didn't see your answer until now.

This is what I do:

<link href="image.png" rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16">

Hey there! I hope this helps. It's not a favicon, but it works for me:

  <link href="something.png" rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" />

If this helps, feel free to mark as right! Have a good one!

@RohilPatel Only put type="image/x-icon" for Windows ICO files; the type attribute should be the MIME type of the linked resource. For a PNG image, that would be "image/png".

Well I really didn't care as it did the trick for me @19wintersp

@RohilPatel If you did this:

<h1 >Hello, world!
< hEaD>

most modern browsers would accept it, and turn it into this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <h1>Hello, world!</h1>

Does that mean that it's alright to code like in the first example?

RohilPatel (1535)

No, however I use ejs and such in html files. Does that mean I'm not allowed to use ejs in them? @19wintersp

@RohilPatel That has practically nothing to do with what I just said.

@SixBeeps Still, it won’t work.

@NicoSlafter You never actually uploaded a favicon?

SixBeeps (5062)

@NicoSlafter You uh...
You need to do that in order to set a favicon.
