Blogger tips...... Favicon

How to Insert a favicon?

Ok, now what's a favicon.........
Favicon (short for Favorites Icon) is a feature that makes it possible to associate a special logo or other small graphic with a web page.

The favicon is usually displayed next to the web site address. Much like the way shortcut icons are used on the computer desktop to distinguish computer programs and files, favicons can be used to personalize or brand your web sites.

FaviconOk here's how to display favicon on ur browser......
Before that u need to first upload an image that u want as favicon onto an online image host..... Most do it on flickr , but u can upload it on google pages (it provides a 100 mb space) ....
Ok once these things are taken care of all u need to do is :
1. go to Dashboard > Template>Edit HTML
2. Place the following code just after <head> tag
<link href='URL' rel='shortcut icon' type='image/x-icon'/>
<link href='URL' rel='icon' type='image/JPG'/>
U need to replace the URL with the path of ur image.... Plus if its a gif then just replace image/jpg with image/gif
