    Have you cleared your browser cache?

    And added your site to your favorites?

    Is the favicon saved as a .ico?

    Try adding the favicon.ico to your directory root?

    Yes go to your web browser and type in http://www.thewishplace.com/favicon.ico

    That should load the picture/icon in the browser. Then try your site homepage.

    Another trick is to bookmark your site and that should also help it show.

    It took mine a few weeks to change. I was using one and switched to the current one and for some reason it took almost a week to switch. I even cleared the cache and everything.

    Just give it time... I can see it is working for new visitors.

    I stand corrected. You need to go to http://www.thewishplace.com/store/favicon.ico

    Sorry for the mistake.

    like this right

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.thewishplace.com/favicon.ico">
    I would change it to

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.thewishplace.com/store/favicon.ico">

    But I would like someone to verify this. I guess it would not hurt to try.

    Any way its working for me. WP with a star above.

    Your on the right track.. just need to add the 'type' to the ending. Here the three basic ways different browsers see a shortcut icon. For IE see's it one way and firefox finds it another.... I used all three on my page to cover as many browsers as I can. Also, using a gif has other uses, such as the firefox search engine.

    <link rel="icon" href="includes/templates/YOURFOLDER/images/icons/icon.gif" type="image/gif" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="includes/templates/YOURFOLDER/images/icons/icon.gif" type="image/gif" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="includes/templates/YOURFOLDER/images/icons/icon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    The code for above in 'html_header.php'
    Code:
    <?php if (defined('FAVICON')) { ?>
    <link rel="icon" href="<?php echo FAVICON2; ?>" type="image/gif" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="<?php echo FAVICON2; ?>" type="image/gif" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="<?php echo FAVICON; ?>" type="image/x-icon" />
    <?php } //endif FAVICON ?>
    You can set the path to your icons in 'includes/languages/english/YOURFOLDER/meta_tags.php'

    Firefox pickup the icon so it is working for it..
