    Bookmarking via image

    I've seen java coding for bookmarking via text...now how about via image? (I'm a coding defunct)

    Another bookmark related question. Matt had this great article about adding a bookmark logo to IE 5.5--

    I made a nifty logo for my site and it worked! However when I came back to the site a day later, I noticed the logo was no longer showing up. Is that because you have to register the favicon program??

    When you mean bookmarking via image... do you mean clicking an image to make it add to your favourites, or are you explicitly referring to the favicon that appears next to the URL once a site has been bookmarked?

    And remember that in order for a favicon to work, the image must reside in EVERY directory there is in your filestore.

    Matt's debating is not a crime

    Just add image code where the text goes in the normal text bookmarking script.

    and for favicon I don't actually think you need it in every directory just your base directory.

    If you can't get it to work its good to add

    <LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON"href="http://you_url/you_icon.ico">

    That will tell the browser the exact place to get it from

    example code

    <!--[if IE]>
    <A onclick="c=0" HREF="javascript:window.external.AddFavorite('http://www.yahoo.com','Yahoo Search')"><IMG BORDER=0 src="You_image_url"></A>
    <![endif]-->

    That works, i think thats what you where aksing for, Note with that code i put it in ie tags only as the script only works in ie, just remove that if you don't mind the bookmark links showing up to netscape users.
