Is there any way to add a shortcut icon to the ZUG pages?

This is done with:
CODE
  <link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="/images/icons/favicon.ico" />
within the HEAD element of the document. in the example here, "favicon.ico" should be a small rendition of the page logo. For ZUG, try using just a single penguin.

With this, the designated image will appear before the URL on most browser address fields, on the tabs in Mozilla, in Favorites lists, etc.

That's a great idea! I've always wondered how other sites did that... I'll give it a whirl and see if I can get it working.

Thanks for the great suggestion!

You're just not inquisitive enough - the first time I saw one I immediately went to "show page source" and figured out how it was done... wink.gif

you're right... I guess I've just been a bit overwhelmed with getting this site going... I announced it's existance not even a day after it was created... been playing catch up ever since!

yes, it looks great doesn't it! though I haven't figured out how to get it working in IE, and to prevent it from going away because of the refresh from the who's online block.

Well, I figure it was better to resurrect an old topic rather than start a new one.

I often have a dozen windows in opera (18 open at the moment), and things get squished down so you can only see the icon. That makes it hard to tell where my OESF wiki and forum pages are! I'd love to see some favicons; and, if possible, slightly different ones for the wiki and forums.

Thanks,
