Add a Favicon

GuildPortal admin site link to the original post

A Favicon is basically the icon associated with your site. When you bookmark/favorite a site, the icon is added to the left side of the name in the list. This is that icon. By default, the favicon is most likely a symbol for your game or a little GP icon. Here is some info:
  • Ideally, a Favicon is either 16x16 pixels or 32x32 pixels in size.
  • A favicon is usually a .ico type file (windows icon), but you can use png and gif in non-IE browsers (not sure about IE9).
  • For more information, check out this wikipedia page about a favicon.
Add the following to your header or footer area code (Control Panel > Custom HTML & Script > Banner Area or Footer Area).

If you have an ICO type icon (works in all browsers), then use this code:
<link type="image/x-icon" href="" rel="icon" />
or if you have a PNG type image (which doesn't work in IE), use this code:
<link type="image/png" href="" rel="icon">
or if you have a GIF type image (which also doesn't work in IE), use this code:
<link type="image/gif" href="" rel="icon">
