Steps on how to add a favicon to your blog or webpage


what's favicon? it is a short name for favorite icon. besides, it is also known as a website icon, or shortcut icon. [get to know more about favicon here]

kekeke... no worries, it's another simple HTML lesson here. the steps are really easy in adding favicon to your blog or webpage. =)

STEP 1:

you will have to upload your image and get the image direct URL.
the format of your image can be in JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP or other common image format.

[hints: to make sure it looks nice, try to resize your image into 16 x 16 pixels, 'cause when it appears as an icon, it'll display in 16 x 16 pixels.] =)

here's some free image hosting website who can host your image for free:
ImageShack | Picasion | Photobucket

then, to add an icon that displays in:
the favorites/bookmarks list [proceed to STEP 2]
the location window of the browser [proceed to STEP 3]

STEP 2:

the one that displays in the favorites/bookmarks list:

<link rel='shortcut icon' href='ImageDirectURL' />

* add the above coding into your blog or webpage under the <HEAD> tag
(before the <BODY> tag)
* replace the word which has highlighted in red with the image direct URL that you have uploaded.

example:
<link rel='shortcut icon' href='http://picasion.com/pic2/ca68e7efe880e7110351db9120ee3faf.gif' />

output:
have a look at the bookmarks list, it will appear as the image shown below.

STEP 3:

the one that displays in the location window of the browser

<link rel='icon' href='ImageDirectURL' />

* add the above coding into your blog or webpage under the <HEAD> tag
(before the <BODY> tag)
* replace the word which has highlighted in red with the image direct URL that you have uploaded.

example:
<link rel='icon' href='http://picasion.com/pic2/ca68e7efe880e7110351db9120ee3faf.gif' />

output:
the icon will appear beside the URL.
