Liven Your Site with a FavIcon

If you want your web page (or blog) to have a FavIcon (just like the one you see at the address bar right now), do the following:
  1. Create a FavIcon. This is an icon (.ico) file, that can be created using agraphic editor, or Visual Studio. The easiest way, would be to browse to FavIcon from Pics and create one online.
  2. Upload the .ico file to your site.
  3. Add the following line to your homepage, in the <head> section:
    <link href="path to your icon file" rel="shortcut icon">
  4. Flush the cache of your browser (FireFox got over this, IE still needs this step).
  5. Browse to the homepage and bookmark it (if you want to).
