A favicon (short for favorites icon), also known as a website icon, shortcut icon, url icon, or bookmark icon is a 16?16, 32?32 or 64?64 pixel square icon associated with a particular website or webpage.[1] A web designer can create such an icon and install it into a website (or webpage) by several means, and most graphical web browsers will then make use of it. Browsers that provide favicon support typically display a page's favicon in the browser's address bar and next to the page's name in a list of bookmarks. Browsers that support a tabbed document interface typically show a page's favicon next to the page's title on the tab.  Party001:

We would speak to our webmaster ~ who he would ask I dunno  ;)




Seriously tho' If you look at the "address bar" at the very top of your screen there is space for something to go in just before the http://www. etc. At the moment it shows a sheet of paper but there has to be a way to insert our chosen (whatever it is) logo. Other sites that must remain nameless do this so how hard can it be. A left click on that space does give some options but I don't want to fiddle in ignorance and mess things up ~ a right click gives other info.

I'll sort it Tuesday when I'm back at my ultra-fast PC...

Done all that but it is still illegible. Just a sort of purple(ish) square with a lighter rectangle in it.

Like others I can see it is there but cannot see what it is. Too dark and perhaps too complicated.

BUT Well done for working out how to do it (with some prompting)
