And I found the Prof icon I did when concidered making emoticons from it (easier, as it has a mouth)
Maybe I'll do both...

These are lovely. Maybe mix them up with a few Zorg ones and maybe a human/syreen or so?

I just can't do anything with it lately... Need some more free time and "a muse" to be in the same time, and that just doesn't happen...


Something I did do is an icon for the site. You need to unzip and save it as "http://www.star-control.com/favicon.ico"
The site wouldn't let me upload it as an .ico...

Well, don't stress yourself. As of now, Frumple is handling any and all tweaks to the forum, so if he needs something I'm sure he'll contact you. I'll keep updating the site though. Where on the site did you intend for that icon to be used?

It is for the little icon right next to the URL. The main site has Melnorme there, whereas the forum has none.

If that icon is meant to be the favicon for this forum, that would be accomplished simply by uploading it to the "community" folder of the site. Thus the URL would be http://star-control.com/community/favicon.ico

That doesn't seem to be working.

Kind of. The idea was that we'd try things out on the test forum and he'd then implement them here, but we've encountered some difficulties with that, leaving the whole thing in his hands now.

Aha, second thing that I didn't notice was needed, you have to add this to the HEAD section of the page's HTML

Code: Select all

<link rel="icon" href="/community/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/community/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
This is only needed for any directory other than the site root. Normally you'd just stick favicon.ico into the root directory of the site, but for some reason that doesn't seem to be getting carried over to this forum. Strange...
