Solved Mobile Phone Bookmark Icon Issue

Post by PlayBeyond on March 24th 2012, 7:39 pm

Mobile Phone Bookmark Icon Issue

Hello

One of the users on our forum has brought to my attention a problem they are experiencing with their mobile device. I don't use a mobile phone device so i am having trouble finding a solution. Ive searched the forumotion archive and all i found was a solution through the use of widgets but this causes errors in our forums display that i would like to avoid.

Basically the issue is this user has bookmarked the forum to his phone menu but it's appearing as a screenshot. This is the screenshot they sent me of their iPhone menu screen, they would prefer a static icon like the Twitter icon for example:


Is there something i can add to the CSS. file to fix this?

This is our forum - http://madge-tribe.forumotion.com/

Add this to your Templates if you have them, or your homepage message if you dont:

Code:
<link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" href="LINKTOICON" />

if you want it to add gloss automatically use above, without gloss use below:

Code:
<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="LINKTOICON" />


IMPORTANT

Your icon MUST BE:
57x57 pixels
90 degree corners
Does not have any shine or gloss
Does not use alpha transparency
MUST BE IN PNG FORMAT.
