Just wondering how hard it would be to make a pretty logo so that when we bookmark the forum to the desktop we get a nice clean logo (just the lens "O" maybe?) as opposed to the view of the forum?

NASIOC have it so I would assume we could?

It would look much nicer :)

I think it just goes off the favicon at the root of the site, fwiw.

We need to change our favicon then :) it makes it look like an app. I like the cleaner look

no, it uses a screen cap of the site... I'll look into it though Jim, that's a good idea.

It's surprisingly easy. You need to create a PNG format graphic file that's 45x45 pixels in size, name it apple-touch-icon.png and drop it in the root directory of your Web site. Here's what I had my graphics guy create:


I'll do it tomorrow. :)

You can bookmark a URL to the iphone's desktop? I searched online before and didn't think it was possible.

yep, hit the + button and it'll ask you where to save the bookmark. "add to desktop" is the second option.

Nice! Anything will definitely be an improvement over the screenshot.

weird, not working. I just ULed icons for the forum and a different one for my own site, neither work on my iP4?

why not change the default title from "Untitled" while you're messing around in there ;)

Icon looks nice!

For some reason it assigned the NSOP logo for POTN as well. :huh:

muhahahahahahahahahaha :devil:

I think it was because I made the POTN bookmark right after the NSOP one. I deleted the first one and brought up a fresh page in Safari (not going to POTN just after NSOP) and it worked right. Theirs is just the hompage, having the logo is SO much better.
