Also, it is used as application icon of mobile device.A favicon is typically a graphic 16 x 16 pixels square and is saved as Word Press Version 4.3 implemented Site Icon feature that enables favicon in your web site. I've tried both but they haven't worked (see screenshot). I'm using a purchased theme (Pixel Union's Lascaux) but I don't know if that's causing the issue. I also tried with png (and of course switched the code) but it also does not work.
I googled for terms like "favicon refresh", "favicon update" and "force favicon refresh", but most of the websites recommended clearing cache or even manually tempering with the temporary Internet files.
Caching lets you visit the same site multiple times without having to download those files over and over again – you save time, the hosting company saves bandwidth, and the world makes sense again.
Since the file typically retains the same filename, the browser has no way of knowing it has been updated.
Our clients revisit our site daily looking for remote technical support, so we need to be able to force their browsers to grab updated stylesheets as we expand our site.
to force the browser to recognize it as a different instance of the file.
I stick with ver=1.3 or v=1.2 because that works for me, but feel free to put anything you want.
Perhaps the favicon was deleted after you followed the directions in the docs.
If you upload the favicon once more it should be possible to link it up, let me know if this doesn't work out and I'll take another look for you :)Cheers Hi all, I'm having the same problem.
Caching poses a problem when a website makes changes to certain files.
