I have noticed for a long time that some of my bookmarked sites have a little icon for the site along with its name and others just have an empty box so I bookmarked my site to see if it has an icon or not. It doesn't have a bookmark icon just an empty box so what do I need to do in order for my site to have a bookmark icon as part of my bookmarks rather then just an empty box. Thanks Mark

    Hey marks,
    I believe you are referring to a favicon. This is a 16px x 16px image named "favicon" that has a file extension of ".ico".

    Use this to include it :
    <link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/favicon.png" />
    If you have any other questions, I'd be glad to help.

    I think that's just normal, as mine too has that little favicon showing up sometimes also, when my site gets bookmarked by social bookmarking services.

    This is called a favicon.

    You can create one for free using favicon.cc

    To get it on your site it will need to be placed in the root directory.
