I'm very new to Magento so maybe there's something I'm missing, but I'm totally lost as to what to try next.
I have a favicon that I would like to put on my brand new Magento 184.108.40.206 install. The file is 32x32 pixels and named "favicon.gif". Using the admin panel, I uploaded the file to
System > Config > General > Design > HTML Head > Favicon Icon
After saving the file, it shows its location as "default/favicon.gif". (The design package is set to "RWD" by default. I'm not sure if that's affecting it...?)
After uploading, clearing both Magento's cache and my browser's cache, I see the same, default Magento icon. Viewing the source code shows me the favicon location as
<link rel="icon" href="<WEBSITE_NAME>/media/favicon/default/favicon.gif" type="image/x-icon" />
Upon navigation to this folder, I see the favicon I uploaded (?!). So the browser finds the right image, but still puts the Magento icon up?
I'm so confused. Any help is greatly appreciated.
