    Not an issue... I'm just a fan of the favicon in the URL bar / bookmarks, etc
    So, submitted for the forum's approval... the "e" from the EDC logo... tinyfied

    Just save it in the document root as favicon.ico and voila
    better than the default vBulletin icon at least

    BUMP

    This would be easy. Simply pop the icon in the website's root folder and add this to the page's source code! Would love the "e".
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://example.com/myicon.ico" />

    Or just pop it in the root folder as favicon.ico and no html/template modification required at all. :)
    That icon was created in more of the style of the last forum's theme & colors
    I could update it... were the forum to actually use it.

    Edit: that's quite the thread bump.. I posted that 2.5 years ago!

    I like the favicons in my browsers. They help my find favorites way faster. Hopefully, it'll be deployed and we'll see it one day. I found your initial thread with a search for "favicon.ico" hoping to see (and I did) that I wasn't the only EDCF'er wanting it.

    This is one thing that bugs me as well. This site is the only one in my bookmarks that doesn't have a favicon.

    Us guys must all be very similar, it bugs me too. Love the E.

    Jon's pretty busy but this would be sweet.

    I dunno what it takes from Jon's perspective but I hear he is a busy guy. Maybe one day though if this thread stays alive.

    Thanks for the icon I used it with FireFox and this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/bookmark-favicon-changer
    EDIT: The icon does not sync to FireFox on my other machines but that's fine 'cause the add-on does. I just copied the icon to my other machine and pointed to it again. According to the add-on publisher, once an icon is used for a bookmark, the source file is no longer needed. I save them to a folder though just in case (i.e., preparedness) and I really like the new "e" I have now! Thx flippedcracker!

    Good thing I found this. I was beginning to think I was a mad man.
