Defining your website icon

This is a good trick that may spice up your Domino website.

Whenever your site gets bookmark , an icon will subsequently show up on their Favorites list. When your site is visited, the icon will also show in the URL box of the browser (e.g. as at tip submission)


. This works only on IE5 onwards. The rest of the browsers will ignore the code.

2. Icon must be a 16X16 Windows icon file.

Method One: Database specific
Put the following META tag into your "HTML Head Content" and path it to your ico file (depending on how you store it).
<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://server/database.nsf/.../myicon.ico">

Method Two: Server-wide ---------- Put your windows "ico" file on the Web Server's root(i.e. DominoData) and name the file strictly to "favicon.ico" Subsequently, databases from this server bookmarked will have the icon.
