    Address Bar Icon HELP!!

    In the Address bar, to the left of URL there is an icon, I have searched to figure out how to create and integrate this icon into my pages with no luck. Does anyone know how to do this?

    (Example...The tiny sitepoint logo to the left of http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/")

    Thank you for your help!

    Maybe a plugin for photoshop is even handier.

    Since they gave you how to make icons, here's how to do it:

    Upload your icon "favicon.ico" to your ~root or /html directory. (must be that name, unless you change server settings), Sometimes it takes a few refreshes to work, so relax. If it doesnt work you have the wrong icon size or format I think.

    Yes, the size has to be correct, but the showing of a favicon is pretty unreliable in some browsers. sometimes they show, sometimes they don't

    Yes especially considiring that IE and Firefox look for different relate lines to get the favicon, also, they don't neccicarily have to .ico (although it helps) I have done it with PNG's and gotten it to stick with IE/Opera/firefox
