Why isn't my favicon changing when I upload an new blavatar?

  1. I have changed my blavatar. But my favicon remains the old one. Could it be that takes a while?

  2. Hi there,

    Can you try clearing your browser's cache and cookies?

    Please let me know if this helps.

  3. Deleted my history and cleaned my cache. Didn't help. Don't know how to clean cookies. Working in Safari.

  4. Managed to find how to clear cookies but still no change. Same old favicon. Everything else did change, so that's the strange bit.

  5. Would you be able to provide me with a link to the favicon you're trying to upload?

    Additionally, can you walk me through the process you're using to change your blog's avatar?

  6. Well, I uploaded an image to use for a blavatar - according to instructions on your help-pages. settings/general/blog photo. Thought my favicon would automatically change with. Apparently it doesn't but I can't seem to find any setting that refers to favicon. maybe I forgot something.

  7. Hi there,

    It may take a little while for your previous favicon to be purged from the cache. If your new favicon doesn't show up in a few days, please try clearing your browser's cache again:

    If it's still not showing up after that, please let us know.
