View Full Version : ICON for Bookmark?

10-04-2002, 07:25 AM
Hey yall!

I'm not sure they have HTML code for this.
When I visit couple of websites, and I added them to bookmark, and there some sites have icon on the left of the title.
For example, I added CodingGorums.com JavaScript Programing
it will have (yellow check icon) then CodingGorums.com JavaScript Programing

And other website I add to bookmark, it have a different icon/picture.

And some site have just an E icon.. just to identif Explorer or N for Netscape I think. So how do I set on my web to have an icon/image when someone my webpage to the bookmark?

THank you..:rolleyes:

LOL well I dont know whether to suggest you pinch my code and start... or wait till the REAL techis wake up and respond!! :D

You might start by visiting www.favicon.com first though... those lil icons are an .ico file and, as far as I know, were designed and used by that company although with some patience its easy to make your own in say .bmp format and save as .ico

I cant tell for NS but in Internet Explorer you dont need a code to use a favourite icon. You just place the icon you want to use on your domain (be careful with the folders you put it in) and rename it to

" favicon.ico "

it will be used automaticly as the new icon still you might have to actualize the shortcut bar to see it instantanuosly.
Hope this was helpful!

So if I want my www.mydomain.com/mywebsite/index.html

SO I would put favicon.ico in my MYWEBSITE folder.. and When I add the www.mydomain.com/mywebsite/index.html to my favorite list.. it will show the faviicon.ico in my BOOKMARK list??

It will work if the Html page you add to the favourites list is in the same folder as the icon for example the set:


will work also the set


will work but


will not. You cant mix it up as long as you dont use subfolders in your site, if you do you have to put the icon into any folder with html codes you want the surfers to have Access to. Otherwise the icon will work only from the pages that are inside the same folder as the icon.

Hi August,

SO there is no setup, except put a favicon.ico where I want a surfer to get when they add to my favorite list??

<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://www.mydomain.com/myicon.ico">

I can specify the icon in which folder it will show when surfers add to my web site to their favorite list.
I wonder if this could put in CSS file?? So I don't to put these code aboe in every html page of mine??
