Favicon

Thank you Daryl
The information you provided worked out!
I found favicon/
dynamcidrive worked better for me using a vista pc with CS4 dreamweaver.
For anyone reading this post with a view to having ago at implementing a favicon, use the dynamicdrive html code: <link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”favicon.ico”> its simpler and worked for me incomparison to other online freebees. I was not able to test locally which is my fault. Try and download the generated dynamicdrive favicon.ico file to individual pre-paired folders in the downloads folder, the ico file is a bit live a carries information over to replacement .ico's. Testing meant that a 454 x 340 PNG 8 jams into resolution for the downscale size 16 x 16 pixels with-out carring the alpha channel, I had to use a PNG instead of a Jpeg or GIF as they show a grey scale placed over the browser alpha channel giving a dirty appearence. Finally Voila!

If your pages are connected through a template, adding the icon to the main template page save it and it will populate all pages... if you are not linked to a template on all pages you may have to insert each page-

is there any easier way??

if the site is not based on a template, the only way to add the facvicon to every page in the site is to manually add the:
<link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”favicon.ico”>


code to each page.

could maybe do it using Dreamweaver Search and Replace. Search for the :
<head>

tag and replace it with:
<head>
<link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”favicon.ico”>
