Hi there all! This may seem to simple to ask, but what code do you use to have a custom icon when a person bookmarks your site?

there is two methods, neither is javascript so this could do with being moved over to the html forum.

first method:

make an icon that is 16x16 and 256 colours (can play with more than one format in the same icon but results can be unexpected), name that icon 'favicon.ico' and put it in your websites root directory, and that's it. Not always reliable tho.

second method:

make icon same as above, but name it whatever you want, put it wherever you want in your websites directory structure. Then put this code in the head of each page after the title tags:

< link rel=“shortcut icon”href=“http:// (the rest of your URL here) /favicon.ico”>

NOTE: You must omit the space following the first "<"

by naming the icon 'favicon.ico' in the second example you'll get a double chance of it working correctly.
