The other night we were having one of our weekly roundtables with the members of the School of Podcasting and someone asked about having "one of those little icon thingies" for your website. Well its amazing how much information you can ifnd when a few curious people hit google at the same time.
We found this website where you can take any image and turn in to the 16×16 image for your favicon.ico But the problem is you need to put this on your website in between the "head" tags. Well most of us are using WordPress, and its not as easy asopening your home page and copying and pasting some code. The good news is, when the going gets tough, the tough find a plugin.
Over at http://www.html-kit.com/favicon/ you can upload a single file, activate your plugin, and then simply edit some options to let the plugin know where your favicon is. It was just that easy.
