Favicon, please?

Post by saraswati » Tue May 24, 2016 11:20 am

Maybe I am the only reader of this forum with about 10 tabs open on my browser; it sometimes gets difficult to find the DharmaWheel tab amongst the other ones.

I wonder if the gurus here could include a Favicon - the little icon that shows up on the tab. Most big websites have that, and it makes it easier to locate the tab, and also to locate the bookmark within all the other bookmarks...

Just a small suggestion, to an otherwise excellent help for me on my path. :namaste:

Yeah, I agree, it would be a very nice addition, and would be nice to have it also added to the sister site dhammawheel.com.

As I have my bookmarks sorted on a bar in firefox without titles, a favicon would come very handy to distinguish between my bookmarks.

That seems like a good idea. :thumbsup:
We will see what we can do. It might take a while, however, because different aspects of the site are maintained by different people, and the mod team doesn't usually have anything to do with site design.

FWIW, I got a favicon changer from the app store and custom-set all the favicons for the sites I regularly use. I just took a screenshot of the dharmacakra logo for the DharmaWheel favicon. Might be a good thing to look into to tide you over until the admins set one up.

Edit: One caveat; because of the lack of contrast between the banner and the wheel itself, the resulting favicon is kind of muddled, and nowhere near as sharp as the Dhammawheel favicon (for which the background banner is more yellow than burgundy).

Favicon is back. We had it with the previous software version and now it is back again with this updated software.

Thanks, David! :smile:

If anyone still doesn't have it, blame your browser or operating system. It seems to be a feature which isn't well standardised and isn't universally supported - see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon for details.
