You can use this site to generate the favicon.ico from a picture.

Then put the .ico in your template folder and add this line between the head tags of the index.php of your template folder:


<link rel='shortcut icon' href='<%baseurl%>
/ndxz-site/
<%obj_theme%>
/favicon.ico' >

(without the returns to the line)

The path you want is...this is your site template:

/ndxz-studio/site/sample/index.php

Hi
I'm trying to add a favicon too. I've put the .ico in my template folder but all the index.php contains is the text "• Built with Indexhibit". Where do I put the code - above this line?
And could someone confirm the code needed (with a dummy web address in place if poss)

Thanks for the help!

I want to assume that you opened the file with dreamweaver and that you're switched to Design view. If so, click Code and you're gonna be able to see the rest of the code.

Insert the snippet above after the
&#60;head&#62;
tag & preferably after the line
&#60;meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=utf-8'/&#62;

In other posts it is suggested to duplicate and the rename the sample folder if you want to customise your css and/or index.php page. If you do you can then choose your personal theme from the theme dropdown menu in setting

oops - forget about all the < and > you see on screen. it's:
<head>
and


<meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=utf-8'/>

Shahnaz: -

  1. /ndxz-studio/site/templatename/

If your using the sample theme it'd be: -

  1. /ndxz-studio/site/sample/favicon.ico

Hope this helps.

That's kind of odd...were you using the code tags (look to the left of the text input window)?

Here is a better sample of what to input:

  1. <link rel='shortcut icon' href='<%baseurl%><%basename%>/site/<%obj_theme%>/favicon.ico' type='image/x-icon' />

I guess i had just left out the last part (type='image...), which wasn't mentioned in the couple threads, i was following. also, i hadn't been entering "http://www" when writing my address in the code. not sure if that made a difference or not. but it's working now including all this info.

thanks again for a great app and forum. A LOT of friends in advertising and design in the USA are picking up on it. Let's hope it doesn't get too popular though. ;-)

Okay! i've been trying hard to add a .ico to my URL onaime.ca ...i've had the ico files in my supermega folder, i'Ve been using the < link rel='shortcut icon' href='< %baseurl%>/site/ /favicon.ico' type='image/x-icon' />

formula.. and nothing happens... i put the formula after the Title in my php file in dreamwEaver .. i wrote after href='http://onaime.ca/public_html etc /favicon.ico .. and not working..
it must be something stupid i dont do right but i don't find what.. and i have been trying for more that 3 hours!!! if i'd be a smoker, i would have smoke the whole pack by now!!! seriously, i've read all the threads about ico.. and i don't know where i went wrong!!

hey CatherineL try using: http://www.onaime.ca/ndxz-studio/site/yourthemename/favicon.ico instead of the baseurl.
If that doesn't work make sure the favicon is in that directory maybe reupload it and clear the cache. If it works move on to Vaska's method two posts up. You can simply copy paste without making changes.

Cheers,
Derek.

...the line of code doesn't seem to be in the index.php file... - you have to edit the index.php file in the theme you're using, save it and upload the .php file + the .ico file.
Recheck that you're editing, saving and uploading the right file...

this must be a path problem... there is nothing else to error here!

- the path should indicate the exact location/trail where the ico fits in.
- try putting the ico inside the root folder "http://www.onaime.ca/favicon.ico" and call it from there with that path.
- erm... don't forget to check your file name. should be exactly favicon.ico
- try listening to glass candy's "ico ico" for inspiration

i dunno what else could fail here... strange...

Hello Catherine,
as Vaska stated, the link doesn't show up in your template, you can check this in the view menu>view page source.

This means that the index.php that you're uploading is not making any effect in your template, so probably the problem is in your connection to the server. Check with your host provider to see if any have changed lately.

In the meantime you can troubleshoot, for instance copying your index.php file from your server to your machine and opening it to see if it reflects the changes you have done. If it does and the source doesn't, the problem is definitely in your connection to the server.

The changes you write to your index.php file and upload to the right place in your server, should be visible in the source view in your browser. If they don't show and everything else seems Ok, the problem is that the server connection settings must have changed.

This is odd...I wonder if your server has an issue with Cookies or if there are some files missing (that didn't get uploaded properly).

It's a really odd error...does your browser allow cookies?

yeah, my browser does allow cookies... im sure some files must be missing or werent uploaded properly.. well.. i guess .. but it is weird because when i look at my index.php file, it seems to be allright.. could the error be from somewhere else?

The error is from that file...seems to be cookie related. Not sure what to say really...this is not a common error. Last time I saw this I think the server had it's clock set wrong or something...

if i take my index.php from my sample or eatock and then bring it in my supermega folder.. would it work.. ?? because in my website.. all the files are there.. but i think it's only the index that's not working.. so can i start with a new index file? or no?

Am I right in guessing that your login and password do not contain ONLY letters and numbers (no symbols, accents, spaces, etc)?

Catherine, even though the results may not be adequate, all is not quite lost. As some say: - R.I.P....

Recovery Is Possible

R. Your MySQL database information should still be intact (say, if your pages had a lot of valuable text)
I. Most of the media you uploaded through Indexhibit should still be in your files folder.
P. If you made a new folder for a theme/or used the Sample theme, your stylesheet customisations will still be around.

First things first, make a backup from your FTP to your harddisk of everything (or just the files/, ndxz-studio/, index.php files and folders).

Then checkout your hosting providers guide on accessing/backing up your database (having a geek at your disposal will help to no end).

May seem like blind optimism, but isn't that in the spirit of lunacy. Joking, I've seen crazier people at Waterloo Station at night *shudder*.

Good luck! ;-D
