Icons in address bar





TGWAdmin
How do you add the icon in the address bar? This usually comes before the URL (ex. X http://www.mysite.com) where 'X' is the logo. How do I add this in and what is the size that the file should be?

Thanks

make a icon 16x16 pixels and save it in the root of your FTP. name it favicon.ico

There is a tutorial about this at Tutorials Section.

I read your tutorial at: http://frihost.com/forums/vt-13742.html and was very impresed, but I should point out a couple of items that could make the favicon feature work better.

1.) The original icon need not be 16x16. 32x32 will also work, the brower will resize it for you.

2.) The favicon.ico file ideally should be placed in the same directory that calls for it. that way id there is a broken link it still has the relative file to work with.

3.) the proper linking tag for calling for your favicon should be as follows:
In the HEAD Section the link should look something like this:

head section
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico"/>
/head section

Please notice that the link is referencial not absolute.


Hope this helps someone Smile
