Ahh this must be a somewhat new forum didnt see it. That is what I was doing wrong. 16 colors I had 256 DoH!
I want to add a diff. Icon to my page when you bookmark it
How Do I go about doing that?
Do you know what I am talking about? Look at address bar in the top of IE (if you are using IE) and see how you have the E on paper?
Now go here: http://www.hardocp.com/
See the logo [H]? how do you do that?
Wrong forum so I will move it after I post my answer.
Internet Explorer expects the favicon.ico file to reside in the directory of the page being bookmarked. Put one in every directory on your site.
The icon itself must conform to the following specifications.
a) Use not more than 16 colors
b) The icom must be 16x16 pixels in size
Usually you will need to create the actual icon with a an icon editor software tool. as many imaging packages dont have an ICO image format
Save your icon as "favicon.ico" and upload it in binary mode to your primary web directory.

Just a note, but those icons never seem to last long on my favorites menu in IE5.5. So this may be a neat useless thing.
Really? I have never had a problem with these. Most of mine have been there for more than 3-4 months.
Do you keep visiting these sites?
like this one?... This is about the icon in the Favorites menu (bookmarking)?, right?
Absolutely, they seem to last maybe 1-3 days/reboots, though I care little for them. I have all IE icons now for about 20 favorites... Seems to work, kinda sorta for new sites, just added cnn.com and I get their icon, will post back when it disappears.
Anyone have any ideas, are they reset to default in clearing cache?, history?, recent docs? I'm kinda curious now...
This one has one? Guess I need to bookmark it then and see what it is.
I have an idea as to why but just a shot in the dark really. Do you have a network logon on this pc? If so then that may be the problem. If not then I dunno unless deleting temp internet files does it too. ? ? ?
Does sysopt have a Favorite Icon? I don't know, really. I actually imported the link, on my last upgrade.
"this pc" shall henceforth represent "the pc I am currently using".
Anyway, my pc (drum roll please), for this issue is Win98 (patched to SE, kinda sorta), using IE5.5. Networked?, IP. Seen same behavior on NT clients (and other PCs I have used), and methinks a IE thingy.
I think the menu option, which is your choice, works fine. But, as more PDAs become the choice du jour, icons will represent much more.
Just wondering why my use of IE and bookmark/favorite menu loses "their" icons, though, I still have cnn.com icon in my menu. Better yet, how does one get them back?
Well???. Just noticed I have lost icon in Faves menu for cnn.com, though icon for yahoo.com still there.
Methinks, adding favorites may upset/refresh this behavior.
I just deleted my history and they all went away.
Hope that helps
That does, and now that I just adminned my surfing, ie. cleared my history, they all gone now.
Not my favorite (no pun, really!) IE behavior.
ya, this sort of sux.. cracks me up that other people had noticed this too. I tried forever to get my website to have it's own special little icon, but I never could figure out how it worked. the other thing that pisses me off is that after I clear all history and temp files, when I revisite the sites that had the neat icons, they seems to sometimes come back, and sometimes not.
anyone got some more info on this?
