The Picture in the corner of a Firefox tab





dwcnps
You know the picture in the corner of a Firefox tab (for example; the F for Frihost), how do you edit that picture for your website?

To my knowledge the icon there is called a favicon. You can find out about them at favicon.com. Remember that you can make them yourself really easily, but favicon.com makes business out of making them for people.

Hope I'm right, and that this helps. Wink

EDIT: This site might help.

Search Google for more info etc.

I think niran (the frihost user) has a guide on his website.

To make that more clear, on Frihost his name is "niranvv". This is his website, although I can't find the guide on there.

Its called a favicon. You can make one yourself in photoshop of GIMP or even MS Paint. Just when you save the file save it as favicon.ico and it will work. Just upload it to your site.
ninjakannon
do you upload it directly into the public_html directory?

Also, it needs to be 16x16 or less.
If you have a forum, you'll probably need to install a mod to use a favicon with it.
Otherwise, you just upload it into every folder that includes html files that you want to have the favicon.

To test I've put a simple favicon in my public_html directory and it appears on every page of my website, I didn't have to put it in every directory, ocalhoun. Cool
Blaster
yes put it into your public_html folder. then you may need to add
Code:
<HTML><link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.yoursite.frih.net/favicon.ico">
to the html file. This should be like the second line of code.

Niranvv does it for free:

He also has a little bit of code to explain how to put it on your page.
