    Brett,

    When I went to the Forums main page today, I noticed the VHL favicon in my IE address box. Cool. (Maybe I just never noticed it before.)

    How do you get those things to work? I made a favicon image for my site, but I don't know what I need to put in the page's HTML to get it to work.

    Synth - You have to save it as an .ico file and call it favicon.ico. Then all you have to do is upload it to your server's web directory. That's it.

    Chelle - In IE, when you click on a bookmark, it's the little image to the left of the bookmark name, usually it's just an "E," but you can make it so it's a small image of your choice. Sites like Yahoo! do it. If you have IE 5.5 or above I think it shows up, but sometimes doesn't.

    Nope won't work for me either. Are you sure you're putting it in your web directory and not the root site directory?

    Well seeing how you are on the Vault server, I doubt that Jerel is giving you access above the web root, so it's probably not an issue. Basically the favicon.ico should be in the same directory where your site's index.html (or index.htm) file is.

    Well, it's definitely there. Like I said,

    http://www.vhvault.com/~maya/index.html
    and
    http://www.vhvault.com/~maya/favicon.ico

    I think I'll get on Jerel's case about it. I'm sure there's something I'm messing up here. [img]smile.gif[/img] Thanks anyway Brett!

    Synth - Now are you sure you used a program that can save a file as an .ico file, cause you can't just a name a .gif that and have it work. See like look what happens when you try to view our favicon.ico file, it's not browser viewable. Tim used some special program to save it as an .ico file.
