Hey guys,
I was wondering if I could get some help with this. I want to have a logo for my webpage when people put it in there bookmarks and am not sure how to do it. If you know how, could you please explain it as simply as you can as I am a noob when it comes to PC's
Thanks:thumbsup:

You need to upload an icon image to your root folder (mylogo.ico)

I used the icon maker on dynamic drive (http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/) to make my icon

Usually it's called favicon.ico not mylogo.ico, but I guess you can call it what you want if you use this at the top of your pages:



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

If you don't want to put in the shortcut link in every page, you can just put:



AddType image/x-icon /favicon.ico


in your .htacess file.
In terms of size, I think they have to be either 16 x 16 or 32 x 32.

that code didn't seem to work, do you need to wrap it in anything?

my current htaccess


AddType image/x-icon /favicon.ico

<Files testgd.jpg>
ForceType application/x-httpd-php
</files>

<Files stats2.jpg>
ForceType application/x-httpd-php
</files>

Nope. I use that on it's own and it works fine. I got it from:

I just used mylogo.ico as an example - my bad for not expanding
