Eric – You don't happen to have instructions on your site for adding a favicon to a shop, do you (hint, hint!)?


One way (and "almost" universally recognized) is to just put the favicon.ico file in the root directory. Next 'best' way would probably be:

<link rel="shortcut icon"
href="http://example.com/myicon.ico" />

6 pages 4 products and 1000 hours of code :lol:


I dare anyone to break my record!:lol:

Phil, is there an "easy button" for that? Like in VSD there's the edit header option. I don't know where to go with the code snippet in CCSCP.

For the time being (since I'm not positive on where to put the code in CCSCP either), I'd just upload the favicon.ico to your root directory. You can always add the code later, and keep the file in your root. Some browsers will look there first, others will look at the code first, so either way you'd be covered.

Thanks Phil :)
If I can't get that figured out, I'll ask about favicons in the SCCP forum (haven't found any clear how-to threads yet).

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Of course this didn't work for me :lol:
Should I continue this in the SCCP forum?

Rather than starting a new thread, maybe one of the mods could simply split the thread off at the appropriate message. Would avoid confusion later, I'm sure.
