Add the link of the webpage in a browser by bookmarking. Thats what i have done on Forumotion, added a bookmark via Safari Browser.

then it book marks it , doesn't ad an icon to the screen of the phone , if i add the site to home screen it will create an icon but not one the site generated , just a screen shot of the page at the time .

sorry if im missing something ..

my question is how can you get your site to generate a personal icon instead of the screen shot , some sites / forms do it , some don't , can we ?

You should probably ask this question on the android help/iphone help forums whichever your smartphone is.

@ MrMario, it was a tutorial for how to get the icon working as it does on my forum and as TOASTIE wants to get it working on thier forum

i read a thread yesterday that says if users wish to submit a tutorial they should send it by pm to a admin so i did but the pm is stuck in my outbox because all the admins seem to be blocking pm's from users, there is no section titled as "support section" and as a mod told me i should post in in the support section, so without trolling though your hundereds of pages i cant find an appropriate section to post it to but it is in your inbox thanks.

the thread i posted is currently locked and in the garbage section, this i find funny because it would have been just as much work for a mod to move it to the garbage section as it would have been to move it to the right section for it to sit in.

i just wanted to share my discovery with the users and forum owners,

If you want to submit a tutorial you must PM a staff member and a staff member will forward it to review. There was never a section or place to submit tutorials.

Looking at what Redmad did, he thought it was a support question. That would be a mistake on what the topic was for.
