Favicon

Ok I'm relentlessly anal about the appearance of my browser. And now that I'm regularly checking the board and it made my bookmarks, it is uglying (yes its a word) up my bookmarks bar. The Admins need to add a favicon to the site so my bookmarks bar looks beautiful again!!

Someone sent me one to use awhile back. I might still use it. But the issue with all these issues is time.  I don't have time to do everything I'd like to do with the site, nor do I have enough technical helpers. So it is constantly in a state of being less than I would like.

Also, this topic would be better suited for the "Technical Help" folder.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

You can't manually change it through: Properties --> Web Document tab --> Change Icon?  I just changed mine like that... seems to work :)

What browser are you using? I'm on Chrome, and I don't see a similar fix.

If you use Firefox, you can get an addon called 'Favicon Picker 3' which allows you to just use whatever image you wish from your own computer.

All you have to do to change it once the addon is installed is right-click on one of your bookmarks (from the 'Bookmarks' menu/sidebar), choose 'Properties', and then browse your files for an image to use.

Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute...

Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.

Sorry for the late response, I'm using Internet Explorer 8... I'm not familiar enough with other browsers to know which could make the changes (and how). :)
