    Default Logo in URL address Please :)

    Hello, please I need to find in your web site the way to place a small icon of my logo in the address bar (like you have on left of your page’s URL)

    I was trying to find it but didn't find it, please help providing me with this script.

    Thanks a lot

    God bless

    hi Edward,

    just create an .ico file named favicon.ico (16 x 16) then put this file in the main directory of your website

    add this line to the <head> section of your index page :
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

    the ico should appear automatically in Netscape, but it may not work with all versions of Internet Explorer

    Or if you're not sure how to create a .ico icon, try the FavIcon Generator tool: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/

    Exclamation I can't upload it!

    Hello again, thanks a lot for your help.

    I did it, exactly like you told me, but when I was trying to upload it.... Yahoo hosting says: "Invalid file name"

    Do can I have any other option?
    What I need to do?
    Do I rename it?, is it going to work properly?

    I really appreciate your help.
    God bless

    No, the extension of the file has to be ".ico" Unfortunately this looks like a Yahoo hosting issue. You'll need to contact them on why the .ico file type is restricted.

    you can try to host your .ico file in another server, I'm not sure if it will work, anyway, you should always test with Netscape 4 or above, because with I.E. the icon won't appear for the first time until you add a page to bookmark.

    Yes, you should be able to upload the .ico file to another server that allows it to be uploaded, and then edit the HTML code to reference it:

    Code:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.anothersite.com/favicon.ico" />
    You'll want to test it in NS6+ though, as NS4 doesn't support logo in the address bar. In IE as mentioned, the logo may not appear immediately (can take a few days).

    oops sorry, you are right, I forgot to mention that I worked with Netscape 4.7

    for Internet Explorer, you should "force" the icon using your computer mouse to "drag" then "drop" the icon from the address bar to the body of the page, it should work with Internet Explorer from version 5.0 (this is just for you, for your visitors, as ddadmin said, it will take time).
