Hi everyone!

How would I get the logo to apear beside the address in the address bar of the browser window? (this site has it set up, incase this made no sense...)

Thanks! :)

You have to use photoshop or the likes to make the icon 16px by 16px and then save it as an .ico extension (example logo.ico)
Put it in you root folder and then in the head of you code just after the meta tags put in this code...

<link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="logo.ico" />

Easy as that!!

I also found this website: http://www.ipowerweb.com/build/design/tips/912.htm

It was quite easy to understand. :)

WEll, I've got it working in Firefox, but not in Explorer? hummmm How can I fix it so that it works for both?

In IE make the site a bookmark and then look at that bookmark. Now close IE and open the site with the bookmark.. or you could use the meta tag.
