Page Icon(browser)

Postby susapra » Sun Oct 05, 2008 8:06 am

Okay, I'm not exactly sure what these images are called, but in Opera, on most websites, there is a little image (usually the logo of the website), up to the left of the address bar.

Is anyone able to explain how to get images there?

Thank you.

Calling it page icon works well enough, but most people call it favicon, short for favorite icon. Here is a Wikipedia article that talks about them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon

and here is a W3C schools tutorial that tells you exactly how to get the favicon in your browser bar and also into a favorites menu:

That would be the Favicon.

Create a 16x16 icon and save it on your top level as favicon.ico .... for good measure I always make a copy named favicon.png since different browsers recognize different file names sometimes. Top level is where your Index page resides.
