Scrolling down this web page reveals one solution that worked for a blank Gmail client - it turned out to be a problem in the router settings.

Thanks Frank & Inger
I already did that (as in I have tried everything I know to fix it)

Turns out that I can get it using firefox, (which I don't normally use except for testing projects) but now at least I can see the mails.It has got worse, in that Microsoft Edge is now doing the same thing, I know Edge is going through transitions & I have the beta version foe developers (using chromium framework), so it could be that.

I am on with a large project for a client at the moment, so am loath to rebuild my PC at this moment, but I will get to it ASAP. Meanwhile I can use firefox to look at Gmail's

Thanks again

Hello all,
Just wondering if anyone has made their own favicom.ico if so must a favicon generator be used OR can one be made without the favicon generator? I know it should be file extension as .ico but is there another way like using a .png or .gif instead??
Thanks
Ray


You can use any ,png, jpg, gif with SDv3 favicon thingy just keep it to around 100px x 100px


SdV3 has a favicon thingy will have to check it out. Thanks Wayan I appreciate you letting me know.


Structure Data
Page Manager

4th thingy down

Use Global to get it on the hundreds & thousands of pages for those delic chocolate bar cookies all wrapped in a fantabidozi custom made wrapper


Thanks Wayan - Was very simple to make and implement in fact very easy :) Question I do have is about the using Global -Even if I check the Global I wouls still have to add and check Global on each page correct??
Still want to find out about the 16 px square favicon.ico that Google would like also, do you know if one can use 2 separate favicon's ie: one I made for SD 3.5 and say it is called " favicon1.png at 96px x 96px" and another one for search engines say called "favicon.ico at 16px x 16px" or is this not possible???
Thanks,
Ray

As I believe Google would like your image to be a number that goes in to 48. In fact Google will then resize to 16x16 to display. So your 96x96 Ray would be fine as its divisible by 48.

Hello Phil,
Thanks for your reply much appreciated!
Good than the 96x96 is okay, I know you are busy but having that favicon image as a .png
can it be used in place of a favicon image as a .ico ?? Do you think SE's will in time show it small as a 16px square - that is what has me confused :rolleyes:
Thanks and hope you are doing well in your new business.

Hi Ray. I'm being thick? What is SE?
I would say do not worry about having your favicon as a png. All modern browsers accept png. I believe IE6 doesn't however even Microsoft is now saying to customers to update to Edge etc as all of IE versions pose a security risk.
In general I am not worrying about supporting IE anymore. Call me naive, but the lengths you have to go to this support this caveman browser is just not worth it in my opinion. And like I said, even Microsoft is telling people to upgrade due to security so people need to get with the times. Regards Phil

Phil no your not thick SE was my attempt as shortcut for "Search Engines" sorry about that.
Come next year in Jan 2020 we will have to make a decision if to buy new pc's or try to upgrade old ones that have the windows 7 pro which we never had any problems with.
Take care and THANKS.

Hello Phil - Well just checked and Google actually picked up that favicon.png in search results they automatically took our 96x96px one and resized to the 16px they use. Never thought they would do that this fast.

Wayan thanks for pointing me in the right direction for adding the favicon thingy.
Hope you get your email problems fixed soon.
