So you want to put your own icon in the location bar of your browser where the Angelfire one is now, eh? And you also want it to show up when someone bookmarks your site? Easy! We'll show you how in a few quick steps.

Step 1.
You're going to need to create an icon. You can either use Photoshop or download a free trial version of IconForge.

If you want to use Photoshop, you may need to download a plug-in to save your browser icon in the .ico format. It's an easy download from Telegraphics.

Create a new document that's 16 pixels x 16 pixels. Then go ahead and do some drawing. The PacMan ghost is always a good choice, at least in our collective opinion.


When you save your icon in photoshop, make sure you name it (this is very important): favicon.ico.

If you're using IconForge, it will automatically save it as favicon.ico, so you should be all set.

Got it? Good. You just finished the hard part.

Step 2.
Using the Web Shell (or your favorite FTP program), upload your favicon.ico to the top level of your Angelfire directory (the same place where your index.html file lives).

Step 3.
Open your index.html file for edit. You'll have to do this in the Advanced Editor, as the Basic one doesn't allow you to edit code.

Locate the <html> tag. Then the <head> tag. Then the </head> tag.

Put this little snippet of code anywhere between the <head> and </head>:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

Click 'Save' and you're done!
