A "favicon" is pretty simple to create and display. The problem most people have is that they make it too big or in the wrong format. A "favicon" should be a small (16x16) image saved in the ".ico" format. It's often possible to use a JPG or GIF, and just change the extension. This may cause a warning in some graphic editors, but it generally works in a browser. However, it's better to put it in the correct format from the start.

Then, place the following code between the <head> and </head> tags in your web page(s). It may take several browser refreshes for the icon to show up. I see an attempt at this in body of your chatroom code, but the file name in the "href" is missing. And it's in the <body> of the code, rather than the <head>.

Code:
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" />

You need to expand on this a little. Are you having problems with HTML, Javascript, Javascript that writes HTML, or are you actually having trouble with Java? Each one has a different meaning. But I suspect your having problems with the Chatroom Java Applet that is on your chatroom page.

I don't see anything wrong with the code, and I even downloaded the PJIRC code and tried it myself. It didn't work for me either. I get a "connection refused" no matter what host I try. But, that's really not the issue here. The Java Applet loads and runs, it's just the connection that is refused. So the problem is not with the 0catch servers. The 0catch servers are doing what they are suppose to be doing. For help on getting your connection working try the PJIRC Support Forum.

I think that you are not reading what Martin is trying to say. (This is my first post on the forum, so pardon me for butting in.)

Martin was not talking about a "shortcut", such as you have on your PC. He was talking about simply telling the html server where your favorite icon is. That is:

1. Make an icon. Save it to your web site. For simplicity purposes, name the file "favicon.ico".

2. Include this line in your html code between the <head> and </head> tags:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

This link item is used to make the icon appear with your web pages when they load. "shortcut icon" is not a shortcut - it is the "code" for telling html that you are going to use a favorite icon with this web page. The "href" segment is telling html exactly where the favorite icon is, and what it is named.

I put a favorite icon into a special directory for all of my web pages - and reference it on all pages from the same place. For an idea of what the code looks like, you can look at my page at:

http://donrosenberger.150m.com/humor.html

....just use the pull-down menu, and do a VIEW - Source......and the source code should be displayed for you in notepad.

I don't know if this really answers your question any better - but I'm guessing that you need to actually *SEE* how someone else did it to make the lesson clear.

Icons are just images. The usual code for adding a image that is linked to a URL is listed below. It's a <img> tag wrapped in a link structure, <a>...</a>. The file name of the image is specified in the <img> tag and the link is specified in the link.

Code:
<a href="bizzareIRC.0catch.com"><img src="my_image.gif"></a>


The exact method that you use depends totally on what you are using to edit your web pages. Different editors have different methods of operation.

But you will note that the above code uses a GIF file. You can use a GIF, or JPG, or any number of other formats, but a image with a ".ico" format is a poor choice. While it will display in Firefox, it won't display in Internet Explorer. ".ico" formatted images are intended tor use as Favorite Icon that is associated with your book marked URLs. Not for general use as a graphic.

You could use something like IrfanView to convert the ".ico" file to ".gif" or "jpg", but you might not like the output. The ".ico" files have special background settings that do not convert very well.

I think that I lost you on that one, Martin.

I use a .ico file on the pages that I mentioned, above. And I don't have any problem, whatsoever, seeing the icon with Internet Explorer. Perhaps the files that you have tried, before, with that extension were corrupted........

(??)

Just trying to figure out why you think this type of file doesn't work - when in my experience, it does.

Yes, I think you did lose me and "bizzareIRC.0catch.com". And no one said that a ".ico" file doesn't work as a "favicon". Possibley, what your not doing is following the thread. I read it wrong myself, at first. Below is the response to my initial posting.

"bizzareIRC.0catch.com" wasn't asking how to display a "favicon" in the address bar. From that posting, it sounds like he/she is trying to use a ".ico" image file as a link on a web page.

The hardest part of answering forum questions is figuring out exactly what is being asked. Most people read the postings too fast. It's not always evident and many users do not give enough information.

And FYI - My experience with computers pre dates the internet. I had my first computer long before there were operating systems and video games. So I do know quite well whether a file is corrupt or not, and how to fix it if it was.
