Design Code Snippet:
 A flashcard from our Design Flashcards Library
 A code snippet from our Design Code Snippets Page

Get rid of the boring default icon on your website.  Add a custom icon!  Most browsers support .ico and the most popular ones will show any standard web image. 

Follow this easy step by step to add one to your web page or site.

Example: This is Prestwood.com's icon. 

Images must be 16x16 pixels.  I use GIMP to create mine.

Normally, save as a .ico file in the root of your site or in any unsecured folder.  I usually put them in "/images", and I usually name it favicon.ico or favicon.gif.

Add this to the header section of your AJAX Master page or any aspx/htm/html/shtml page.

<link REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="/images/favicon.gif">

Some browsers even support ANIMATED gifs.

Does this technique work for all browsers? I've always used a combo approach with "bookmark" too as follows:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico">

<link rel="bookmark icon" href="/favicon.ico">

Is my technique outdated now

Interesting. I had heard that some older browsers ignore it, but not that there is an alternate way of displaying it.  Since there are so many browsers, and open-source variants, I can't really answer that with a definite answer.

An interesting an side effect of this is that on an application where the working directory is on a network drive, the project aliases are available to everyone using that directory. However, the public aliases are not usually shared across the network, unless the users are sharing the same config file for the BDE. This does not appear to be a very common occurance. five nights at freddy's demo online, free survival games
