Picture in the url bar?

Post by gravitate » Sat Jan 01, 2011 7:29 pm

How do you put a logo in the left of the url bar and can you change the background of the color?
Many thanks

Wow cool looks straight forward but May I ask
<link REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://www.yoursite.com/yourdir/favicon.ico">


What do you replace the SHORTCUT ICON with? Also What does the yourdiv mean?

I take it the favicon.ico you have to gernerate yourself?

You don't. That's proper code.

Your directory.

So if your site is http://www.whatever.com/forum then you need to add http://www.whatever.com/forum/favicon.ico

In reality you can just drop the file in your site root and it should show up.

Yep. There are several websites where you can just upload your image and they'll spit out the ico file for you.
