Description:

  • A favicon (short for favorite icon) is an icon associated with a particular website or webpage. A web designer can create such an icon and install it into a website (or webpage) by several means, and most graphical web browsers will then make use of it. Browsers that provide favicon support typically display a page's favicon in the browser's address bar and next to the page's name in a list of bookmarks. Browsers that support a tabbed document interface typically show a page's favicon next to the page's title on the tab.
  • There are a few ways to make the icon that we know of. Two of them are:
    • Using Preview (OSX)
      • Open any jpeg or png containing a logo
      • Change the pixel size of the logo to 32 by 32 pixels, 8 or 24 bit colour or B&W
      • Save the file
      • Rename it to favicon.ico
      • Place it in the htdocs and 1/WebPagesEN/tmGifs folders
      • Add to /tmScripts/styles.html link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="tmGifs/favicon.ico" - it tells the browser where to go to get the favorite icon. In this case, it says inside /tmGifs for the outlet
    • Using a web page tool like favicon.cc
    • Using any other tool you know of
