    Can we have a "favicon.ico" for the browser link in favorites please?
    Works in IE anyway.
    I nominate the bannana man.
    That, ah he, or is it she?, well whatever, is soo GA!
    The choice should be open to members input with maybe even a poll.
    best wishes,
    Ugly

    Maybe a globe to match the corner logo? Remember whatever you pick has to be understandable at 16x16 pixels.

    Hey, looks cool BDD :) Now it just needs to become an .ico :) I'd nominate this little guy :) Making favicos are annoying sometimes.

    I've found that just renaming a .gif to an .ico works just fine.

    So that the Mozilla/Opera/Konq people can see it use >link rel="shortcut icon" src="favicon.png"< also make sure you use PNG and not ICO, or it won't show up with some Linux browsers.

    Since we're talking of favicons here, GA could provide desktop icons as well :) A multiple .ico platform. Any ideas for 16x16 and 32x32 images? :)

    Good to know- now I'll make a png version of my favicon so that of the 20 or so people that visit my site a year, maybe one of them that uses Opera or Mozilla AND decides to bookmark my site HAHAHAHA my pathetic little icon will show !

    If anyone is interested, I will work on a little something that will add a link to GlobalAffairs to the right side of the XP start menu, and/or a link in MSIE like MSN Messenger does...

    Ok... Not sure what the problem is, perhaps ISP limitations, but that sucker won't show.

    Did you rename it to "favicon.ico"? It must have that exact name for it to work...

    Yep. It's at the root, at the forum's root, and at www root (thought maybe I have it in the wrong place so).

    Which one are you trying to use?

    the gif one. For some reason, I can't even upload my index.html. :(

    Definitely ISP. I shall kick their #(*@ now.

    That is odd. I don't think it works without the index, but I wouldn't swear to it.

    Are you talking about the one in Violet's post? Maybe I can convert it to proper .ico format and attach it... or even work with something containing both the 16x16 and 32x32 in the same icon file.

    No Sharon's. Although, I like BDD's as well but his is a png.
