How do you add an icon to your website?

Did you use the search before posting?
What about reading through our https://community.netlify.com/search?q=common%20issue?

i tried making a favicon.ico and adding

< link rel=“shortcut icon” href="/favicon.ico" type=“image/x-icon”>
< link rel=“icon” href="/favicon.ico" type=“image/x-icon”>

but it did nothing (i did not add spaces in the code, i added them becose the site was hiding them for some reason)

hi there,

just as a sanity check, did you add the icon to your repo and push it?

We can offer you some basic debugging help with this if you tell us your netlify site name and provide a link to your github repo.

What do you mean by push it?

My site is: vasilisisanepicgamer.ga
The repo is: https://github.com/VasinklingGR/Vasilisisanepicgamer
Also another thing I forgot to add

If I go to url.ga/favicon.ico it shows up there, so I guess the code I found was not correct?

vasili,

i can see the favicon when i pull up your site:

it seems to be working just fine?

you may need to empty your browser cache if you can’t see it.

Sorry for the late reply, the problem was cashe. Completely forgot that it was a thing haha (for anyone else that may have the same problem, in chrome press Ctrl + reload to clean the cashe of that specific website)
