I have seen other Websites which have their logo next to their web address where there is normally a picture of an "e" on top of a piece of paper (See the right hand side of the address bar on this page).
Do you know how I could change it ?

Thanks

Martin

I tried it and it came up with the code:

<link rel="Shortcut Icon" href="favicon.ico">

I then put this into the head of my home page and saved the file favicon.ico but I still have the webpage icon - why is this :?:

What file format did you use? You cannot just rename a GIF, JPG or BMP. You need image editing software that saves the favicon in an ICO format, which is special.

Another thought: You may need to bookmark the page in your favorites before the icon image shows up. I've also seen the favicon icons come and go in the favorites.

Yep, it's a ".ico" file.
And it's in my favorites.
-- Another thing on the subject of favorites - For some reason when I bookmark Freewebs.com it is never still there the next day.
