when you bookmark webpages-- most sites have a little symbol, an icon to rep the site.

does the IRC not have one? if so, should some awesome graphic master/friend of the board design one?

i smell a poll/ competition comin' on...

They're called favicons.

If Mullaney is interested in such a contest, I can post the technical specifications for such a file.

Any image for that use should be saved in one of the following formats

.GIF
.PNG
.ICO

(.ico is more standard, but not required)

The file should be either

16x16
or
32x32

in size and should have be either 8-bit (256) or 24-bit color.

I made one. But it doesn't seem to be working.



What else do I need to do besides putting it on the server?

If it's in your root directory, it usually works. I just did a quick manual check for http://www.improvresourcecenter.com/favicon.ico and didn't see it. So if you upload to your root, that may be the whole process.

Unfortunately, just like setting up the forums in the first place, there are all sorts of little roadblocks depending on your server etc, but this usually does the trick.

If IRC was a straight HTML page, you could insert a line of code in your header. Since this is a forum, generated by php (I assume). You can just find where your header is generated and insert this there.

Put this piece of code somewhere between the <head></head> tags on your pages:

Code:
<link rel="icon" href="http://www.improvresourcecenter.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.improvresourcecenter.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

i think, because of Rosie's interest in this, it should be a vagicon, with circling flies optional
or how about an image of your wife giving your boss a blow job?

WHAT?! What's that Garvin? Oh... it's just me sassin' you back, JEYAACK!

[stands abruptly. proceeds to run "victory lap" and virtually high five other IRCers].

Witness BITCH! WIT... ness.






I like your logo Mullaney. Make it work.
