    Unhappy Redirect page source to Domain URL


    Hi,
    I've got a Website http://homrpage.ntlworld,com/etc....
    But now I've got a Domain Namehttp://www.mysite.co.uk
    I'm having trouble with a favicon!!
    If I put my homepage Url in it shows the favicon beautifully
    Same with bookmarking it use to point to my homepage!! (Till I changed it)
    The page source seems to allways point to my homepage!!!!
    Is there some way in HTML I can REDIRECT the source to my Domain Name??
    My Domain Name works perfectly.
    I've been trying all sorts of ways (I've been at this for 24hrs now) It's for a cancer charity Web Site & I would really like to get this working.
    Regards
    Frank

    Hello fnewsome,
    I'm not sure what you've got going on there. Here's what I see:

    http://homrpage.ntlworld,com/etc is a dead link

    http://www.mysite.co.uk/ is a list of links with a logo at the top. It has a favicon,

    From http://www.thesitewizard.com/archive/favicon.shtml
    Helping the Browser Locate the favicon.ico file
    If you have placed your favicon.ico file in a location other than the current web directory (relative to your web page) or the root directory, you have to help your visitors' browser locate the favicon file by specifying it with a tag like the following in the <head> section of your web page.

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    You should replace "/favicon.ico" in the above example with the actual location of your favicon.ico file, for example, "/images/favicon.ico" if you have placed it in your "/images/" directory.

    This step is optional if you have put your "favicon.ico" file in the standard locations, ie, in the same directory as the web page or in the root directory of your website. Otherwise you will need to modify all your existing web pages to take advantage of the "favicon.ico" facility
    You link to a CSS file at http://www.mysite.co.uk/style.css but the list of links is there too.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad
