Showing Favicon On Your Board/RunSearch


You may notice that during on some of the results shown by RunSearch a little icon in the top left.

These shortcut icons are what appear in the address bar of each of those boards you visit and on modern browser, the tabs aswell (subject to your browser being able to show them)

So if you want one of your own there are various ways which you can add one for different types of images.

Get An Image
It must be 16pixels x 16pixels and can be in a .ico .bmp .gif .jpg .jpeg or .png , however there are different codes to use dependant on the filetype.

Its recommended these days to use a gif or png for your favicon as they are better supported these days and provide better quality than the older favicon types.

Obviously you'll need to host the image. If you havent got a host try http://www.imageshack.us or http://www.photobucket.com

Add to your html header
replace {YOURHOSTHERE} with the host of the file and any directory eg http://www.thisismyhost/myfolder/

.ico (note: this file MUST be named favicon.ico or it will not work.)

<link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="{YOURHOSTHERE}/favicon.ico" />

.gif

<link rel="icon" href="{YOURHOSTHERE}/favicon.gif" type="image/gif" />

.jpg

<link rel="icon" href="{YOURHOSTHERE}/favicon.jpg" type="image/jpg" />

.jpeg (Same as .jpg but different ext)

<link rel="icon" href="{YOURHOSTHERE}/favicon.jpeg" type="image/jpeg" />

.bmp

<link rel="icon" href="{YOURHOSTHERE}/favicon.bmp" type="image/bmp" />

.png

<link rel="icon" href="{YOURHOSTHERE}/favicon.png" type="image/png" />

Re: Showing Favicon On Your Board/RunSearch


it was just a case of that RunSearch last spidered your board about 6-9 days ago when it appears that you didnt have a favicon in place.

I've just respidered your forum and it now picked it up.
