Default web address logo?

how can you get the little logo next to your web address in the address bar, like computer forums has the little blue and yellow thing next to the site address?

ok first make a little logo dont know what size but make it small. Then save it as favicon.ico file i used infranview for my conversion. Upload it to your website, then go to a website editor or notepad and paste between the <HEAD> </HEAD> tags this code...

<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="favicon.ico">

Let me know if that works

Ok this is the code I posted into notepad:

<HEAD><LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="favicon.ico"></HEAD>

Then I saved it as "favicon.ico" put it in the root directory in my ftp, but it doesn't show up when i go to the site...

You might need to refresh your browser. Firefox should see your favicon in your directory without that code.

nonono

you paste the code on your WEBSITE Source. so open your website in notepad and find </HEAD> and paste the code before that!

Then you find the image you want and save it as favicon.ico

do you get me?? If not theres a tutorial im doing on my forum. so please feel free to visit it
