Adding an ANIMATED Favicon to whitehouse theme

Question

Posted · Report post

I just created an animated GIF for use as my favicon in wordpress. I use the whitehouse theme (basic, free version). The instructions that came with the antimated GIF creator, say to do this:

How to use the Animated FavIcon: if you would like to display the animated favicon, upload animated_favicon.gif also and insert the following HTML tags. <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" > <link rel="icon" href="http://yoursite.com/animated_favicon.gif" type="image/gif" >
How could I implement this into my whitehouse theme without breaking the code? I already tried and it broke :)

I've never seen an animated favicon before. Can this be done?

Here are three of the top google results for that question: 1 2 3 The answer seems to be Yes, but firefox may be the only browser that shows it animate.

How did it break? If everything went white then you probably just have a missing tag or something out of order.

My guess is I change this: `<?php if(pagelines('favicon')):?><?php endif;?>` To this: `<?php if(pagelines('favicon')):?><?php endif;?>` but it doesn't work so obviously that's not the solution.

even if the linking is broken, the page should still load. Try restoring to the way it was before to see if the page still goes white. If so, the missing tag is somewhere else.

OK, so i feel dumb now. Actually just putting it into the settings for whitehouse did it just fine. No need to go into the code! so, instead of using the .ico, i just reference the gif. I was using Chrome to view it, not firefox. Firefox shows it just fine. It's a lot easier than I made it out to be, i just didn't know it was ff only when i posted. Thanks
