So way back when, when I was futzing around endlessly with setting up the site, and then again when I was working to migrate the original hand-rolled avfl to wordpress, I remember crossing a few different discussions of how to get your website’s icon to appear in the URL bar at the top of the browser. And of course you’ve seen them; they’re everywhere. So now, it’s late, I can’t sleep, the interns aren’t answering my urgent pages, and I’m wondering how difficult it is to get the paper-sack guy up in the browser toolbar. Probably not very, but there’s no accounting for how dense a lazy insomniac can be.
Update: Well you’ve all been extraordinarily helpful as per usual. Two hitches: 1)I can get the favicon into the root with no problem and it shows up at http://www.averyfineline.com/favicon.ico. However, it doesn’t show up at other pages within the site, as far as I can tell. I tried opening other avfl pages in IE and Firefox. No luck. I tried newly bookmarking the page and reloading it that way. Still no dice. Hmmmm. 2)Clearly the icon is just not terribly useful at the itty bitty low-quality size necessarily for the favicon. I’ve tried cropping it down to focus only on paper-sack guy himself and not so much his computer, but you have to squint really hard and do a lot of wishful thinking for the image to be more than a bloppy glob. Which may mean …. back to the drawing board.Email this Post
