Calling All Coders

I know all the really cool people are using Opera, Mozilla and Firefox to search and surf the Internet these days, but I’m still “old school” and use my trusty Internet Explorer.

Lately I’ve notice with IE 7, if I go to certain pages; I can see a small logo of the website in the search bar of IE 7, just before the displayed website address.

Well, I think that’s cool. I want “On The Road With Dave” to have that. So I contacted Eric over at Quixtar Blog and he was able to send me a .png file of my OTWD chevron road sign.

otrwd-749388Soooo, all my computer savvy friends out there…please tell me the code I need to embed on my blog template, that will display this nifty roadsign in the address bar of Internet Explorer, AND not be visible on the blog page itself.

I await the wisdom of my readers.

UPDATE: Favicon is in place.

UPDATE#2:  Just an FYI, I switched to Mozilla Firefox way back in 2008

    Is what your looking for called a “Favicon”? Like what Qblog has?


  2. YES! I knew it had to have a name. Thanks Michael. Do you have one?

  3. you need to make a 16×16 pixel image file, put it in your root directory of your web, and call it “favicon.ico”. There’s also a way in html to direct to it …. but I forget how sorry 🙁 google favicon.ico and you’ll fidn the secret!

    Google Favicon and find Dave Taylor’s website. He has one on there.

    You’re welcome buddy

    Did a bit of googling for you and found the code you need.

    Make the chevron a 16 x 16 pixel image first. Then go here:

    upload the chevron, then download the favicon.ico file

    Copy and paste the code from the website and there you go.

    Michael…AKA mikey.

    I hope it works out- looking forward to seeing the cool OTRWD favicon.

  6. SUCCESS! Although it took a bit more than the tutorial explained, because of the way I upload files.

    The icon is a bit small and blurred, but it’s there.
