I'd like to give Deb a BIG THANKS for the new Favicon, which you can see in the tab heading at the very top of your screen when visiting the CVAS forum. It is a nice touch.

Thanks also goes to DDavis1979 for his help as well. Very Happy

I am using IE. I went in and deleted my cache, and that made the green box go away, but now I only see the blue E for IE.

I switched over to Firefox and i can see it there, must be an IE glitch. It wouldnt be the first one LOL!

A favicon is a favorites icon or a shortcut icon. It's displayed as a small graphic in the toolbar at the top of the page (unless the tab bar is suppressed) and the saved bookmarks menu dropdown list. There are default favicons available to web developers but ideally the favicon should be unique to the site. In this case, we adapted the fish from the CVAS banner and manipulated it into the tiny graphic you see above in the toolbar.

Thanks DL for asking. I too had no idea what they were refering to. Not wanting to demonstrate how uneducated I am on the computer I had to look up in Google search what a favicon was. I appreciate your explaining Deb, but I sure don't see anything different. I only see the IE icon and Free Forum: Central Virginia Aquarium Society in the Tab. I'm using IE and Windows XP. Wonder if that is the issue?

If you are using IE that may very well be the problem. See ddavis' post above. When he switched over to Firefox he was able to see it.

Never used firefox. I just downloaded and sure enough the new favicon is there. Must be a quirk with IE as mentioned above. Pretty cool thanks.
