There is an icon associated with many web pages that appears next to a bookmark or a tab.  I would appreciate it if you guys added this for the forge, as I keep my favorite bookmarks on a toolbar on my browser.  Having it appear as a generic icon makes it hard to distinguish from the other 50% of the web that also have the generic icon.

Quote
Here is more info on how to do this.

Make a tiny image, no larger than 16x16 pixels with no more than 16 colors.

Name the icon favicon.ico

Put this icon into each directory (folder) on your site that you want people to be able to bookmark.

From http://www.hostingct.com/design/tutorials/favicon.shtml.  This web page also has links to .ico editors.  If you guys want me to make you an icon, I certainly will help. I imagine I'd do the "anvil R."

Thank you for all you do.

I seem to remember that Forge had some sort of icon before the latest technical overhaul. But it's probably best if you make a new one, David - it's not that much work, and if you send a ready-made icon to Vincent, he'll be that much more prompt to execute the improvement.

Eero's super correct. If you wait for me to get to it, it'll be a wait! Send me a cool little graphic and easy instructions, it'll happen much, much quicker.

I can't deal conveniently with the .png just now. Maybe resave it as .gif or .ico?

If you have a png, it should work relatively easily if you include these directives in your header:

Code:
<link rel="icon" href="PATH_TO_IMAGE/THE_PNG.png" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="PATH_TO_IMAGE/THE_PNG.png" type="image/x-icon" />

This will also place the icon on the browser tab as well.

I didnīt know .gifs could carry an alpha channel. If a .gif should still be needed, here goes.

Vincent,

This icon should just work if you drop it in the site root.
