Changing the default icon

How do I make my own icon appear in the address bar and favorites menu? by tanderso
Posted: 23 Dec 00

First, you have to create a 16x16 pixel ico file.  Get an icon editor or use Windows' native Paint program.

You can make a default icon for your whole site by naming it favicon.ico and putting it in your root web directory.  Or you can make a per-page icon by using a link tag:

  <LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://domain.com/icon.ico">
  <TITLE>My Title</TITLE>

I believe that your visitors must add your site to their favorites before they will see the icon appear in the address bar or the favorites menu.
