Favicon not working

My favicon that I am trying to insert into my webpage is not working. Can someone tell me the code and styling I need to insert it?

<title>Welcome to Crash - Login or Signup</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="crash_styling.css"></link>
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

<body link="#336666" alink="red" vlink="red">

<div id="header_title">
<h1 id="title">crash</h1>
<p id="motto">Keep track of all your assignments and projects.</p>

<form name="input" action="html_form_action.asp" method="get" id="user_passEntry">
Username:<input type="text" name="username" placeholder="Your Username" /> <br />
Password:<input type="password" name="password" placeholder="Your Password" />
<input type="submit" value="submit">

<p id="description">Crash is a way students can keep track of their projects and assignments on the computer or on their devices. With crash, you can be sure you'll never turn in something late again.</p>

<div class="make"><a href="crash_styling" style="text-decoration:none"/>Make a New Assignment</div>
<div class="edit"><a href="crash_styling" style="text-decoration:none"/>Edit an Assignment</div>
<div class="check"><a href="crash_styling" style="text-decoration:none"/>Check off an Assignment</div>


Answer Source

To place a Favicon on your site you would use the following in the <head> tag

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://yourwebsitepath/favicon.ico" />

You need to be sure that the path is correct for the icon. If the path is not correct it will not appear. I have also seen caching issues that makes it seem that the icon isn't working. Always try to restart your browser after clearing the cache.
