Okay, I want a favicon on my forum. I went to Meta Tags, added the code, put the link in and when I view the page, it doesn't display. Is there a certain size?

It doesn't go in the metatags - it goes before the body tags, at the end of the head tags.
Code:
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://xxxxx/siteicon.gif">

like that. The icon has to be hosted and the url to it goes in the obvious place in the code. You can probably host it in your gallery and use the url it provides.

Actually if you use .gif, they will show up in firefox but not in internet explorer, but if they are in .ico, they will show up in both browsers

True, but then none of my members USE Internet Explorer, and I don't code my websites to the whims of MS if they choose not to adhere to the accepted HTML4 and CSS2 conventions:) My sites are all hand coded and verified to CSS2 standards.

Any one of the many file hosting sites that allow hotlinking. Flickr, photobucket, image shack, etc. Or your own gallery.

ok here is the code:

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="your icon link here" />
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="your icon link here" />

and this is put into 'other meta-tags'

this will display the favicon on all the portal and index page(s)

you can create your favicon here

http://www.favicon.cc/

and host it here

www.iconj.com

if you have html pages you will need another code which is:

<HEAD><link rel="shortcut icon" href="your icon link here" /><HEAD>

if you already have a head section created in your page remove <HEAD> from the above code

this works for me Very Happy
