Favicon not animated

Post by cclloyd9785 on September 2nd 2010, 7:12 pm

I made a favicon


http://s7.tinypic.com/v6mdjm_th.jpg

And we tried leaving the link as tiny pic made it, and tried changing it to .gif ending, but neither of them made it animated.

Last time I checked, you can't have an animated favicon.

Well I did have one a while ago, and it worked. That was like 6 months ago...


Edit: I just tested it, and apparently its only animated on firefox... (no extensions)

Servimg tends to randomly change the file type to .jpg.

Well I used tinypic, which for all images ends in .png, but no matter what you change it to doesnt matter.

Sorry, I thought you said Servimg. Razz

Try Photobucket.

You can't just change the file extension to whatever you want. You have to upload it as a .gif also I noticed that if the URL is to long it will cut it out. I guess there is a character limit on image URL's for the forum. So make sure you upload it to your default album on photobucket.

I use photobucket and have an animated favicon and have no problems. I do use firefox though. I just checked and it doesn't show up in Internet explorer. I just get the generic explorer favicon..

As suggested above I would try using another image hosting company such as photobucket.

I don't think Firefox reads .ico, it's an Internet Explorer specific file type if I'm not mistaken.

Even if it's not, you shouldn't worry about Internet Explorer, it sucks. I think in the next two to three years everyone will be using Firefox or Chrome anyway.

It works on Firefox Wink I personally hate IE, but many people still are forced to use it.

Well we talked about this before. Supposedly IE9 is suppose to be a huge upgrade. Either way I think it is a fail.
