How can I load a favicon onto my site using dreamweaver? Is it an extension or just a bit of code?

    Lots of threads o this in the Dreamweaver general forum:

    Search for "favicon" and you should find plenty of results to get your answer

    I think there are better alternative in creating a favicon for use. Try search favicon in google.

    favicon is just a type of image format with extension .ico . you can find several free software that can create and save favicons. try http://www.favicon.cc/ or google for free favicon creation. usually image must be 16 by 16 pixels. once you saved the image just upload it to your root folder (in public_html or in www folder). Remember you must save the images as " favicon.ico " (it must have a name "favicon.ico" with out the quote). It shows up in all browsers except internet explorer 6 and older.

    The easy way to to add manual code in the HTML <Head>
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    To create the initial Icon file goto to a website like www.favicon.co.uk

    Note somtimes it can take a while to update as easy solution is to clear the browser cache if required
    or try to save a bookmark of the page as a test trial.

    I had problems with the favicon - it was shown on /index.html, but not for the main URL (I uploaded it to both root directory and images directory). I added this code:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/images/favicon.ico" >
    and everything's working just fine!

    I've also had trouble with favicon implementation in Dreamweaver until I found out it's just one short line:

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/nameofthefavicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

    Also making something nice out of 16 x 16 is hard, I envy sites that do it right like on free vectors.

    Hi,

    easiest way to add favicon go to: http://favicon.htmlkit.com/favicon/ upload your image i think size is 80x80 or 100x100px max, once you browse to image and found it say create favicon, once done image will display if you happy with it, you install the code displayed in block on the right, copy and paste directly after the head on your index page, then download favicon folder once done open folder copy the two favicon items and paste in the root of your site, once you done all this re-upload your index page after saving and upload the two favicon items,

     

    that should be sorted then, you can validate by clicking on the validate link type in url of site and it will test to make sure you have installed correctly, should be all green ticks indicating correct instalation

    I do it manually is not complex, but why not use the functionality of pieces of code?, ie, include in your short codes, then just drag on your document.

     

    Grettings!
