View Full Version : icon in address bar?!

How do I change the image in the address bar to an icon that I choose. If you look in your address bar it most likely shows the explore with a paper symbol.

You want to use a favicon (http://www.favicon.com). You can create one here (http://www.chami.com/html-kit/services/favicon/) from just a normal image if you like.

This question has been asked/answered so many times on this forum before :eek:

Oops! Too slow. Time for an early night, methinks. ;)

Ok :)

I have a small program that coverts either 16x16 or 32x32 images to .ico file. If you don't want to use the <link rel="shortcut icon" src="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /> code in your html, you can use:

AddType image/x-icon http://www.yoursite.com/favicon.ico

to your .htaccess file :)
