...You know, those little icons that appear next to the URL in your browser?

Ukulele Underground needs one.

I'd be more than glad to make one, if y'all wanna throw the file onto the site...

I was thinking that the site should have a favicon.

I agree! It's the only site in my bookmark toolbar that doesn't have one. That's so weird that this thread got started today, as it was only this morning at work I was thinking about it.

I suggested this months ago (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1035), but when noone replied, I figured I was the only one...

I also support the idea of having this it would only make the underground that much more badass. :rock:

Something like this

Or even something simple like this...

(This being the simple/quick/ugly version... took me all of 2 minutes. Something better could be made by putting in a whole five minutes...)

I made one too. It's just a simple design. The background color of the forum + a white ukulele.

The UU staff is on tour in California right now. I doubt they're going to stop the show to put a picture up to amuse us.

See, but it's not just a picture, its a favicon!

And I was just thinking about this today too, so I'm glad someone already made a thread! :)

BTW, SuperSecretBeta, I love that design. And it really isn't that hard to put one in. You just need to upload the image onto the host server and change one line of code, and you have a favicon, and everyone's bookmarks look better. And I have noticed that I personally visit sites that have a favicon more often than those that don't when I'm bored and just going through my bookmarks.

I still think this is a really good idea. It makes a site look more professional. And it's the easiest thing in the world to throw one up there.

Still no favicon. Even a simple white on brown "UU" or ukulele icon would make the site a lot better IMO, since it shows up better in people's favorites instead of just a blank page icon.

I'm loving the idea of a UU favicon....even though I had to research what that meant.

Would it be equally as easy to use the same logo on one's desktop as a shortcut to the only address on the internet that matters?

Make a little favicon.ico graphic for the UU so it pops up in the address bar at the top of the browser. There are several freebie programs that will either help create one or let you make it pixel-by-pixel. Easy to do and adds a custom look to the forum on the browser bar.

I also vote for a favicon. It only takes a second to add to the site! Any of the the options above would do nicely.

Vindelanda
09-26-2009, 05:59 PM
I would really love one too. I was actually kind of surprised that UU didn't have one when I first came here because the rest of the site was so proffesionally done. It really does add to the site and it may just boost visitors a little bit.

sealcove

Any chance for a UU favicon? Seems like a little uke, perhaps the logo illustration, or even just a nice UU would work well.

Rock-A-Hula

I too am hopeful that, with all of the incredible artistic talent of UU's members, someone will come up with a nifty little "UU" favicon to display! The forum has always needed one! Thanks and Happy New Year!

That first link has a bunch of perfectly usable ico format uke icons that would work well until a custom one can be drawn.

I'm also voicing my support for a favicon, I was going through my history looking for a uke site I had visited some little while a go (and hadn't bookmarked correctly) and a favicon rather than the blue generic one would have made the search a whole lot easier.

Thanks, Tony

I've been hoping you guys would add a favicon as I have it on my bookmark bar in firefox and a grey piece of paper just isn't doing it for me so here's my attempt based on the new colour scheme.

I used this website (http://www.html-kit.com/favicon/) to do the conversion and they also created the little animated gif version. In the zip (if it attaches ok) is both the .ico and .gif file.


edit: ok the .gif attachment isn't showing up the animated part but the files in the zip work fine. :)

I know I'm a little late to the show and since i'm at work you have already added one but I don't see it. Either way i vote for this one if the question is still open. If the question is still open it sounds like a good oppertunity for a contest.

you should check out the Favicon that user SuperSecretBETA created. SuperSecretBETA posted it in this thread back on 7/14/09. check it out. It's black background with white Ukulele and some more white accent lines. check it out. maybe if enough of us suggest it the powers that be will use it. At least until they can think of something better.

I'd love a site favicon - selfishly, because I have my links-bar only icons, and UU can't be told from just the favicon. Sad day! If they need one made, I'm sure someone here is good at that sort of thing!

For those using firefox you can use this add on to add your own favicons.
Here's what my favorites bar looks like. I used a favicon listed on this thread earlier. Hope this helps some. I just got tired of looking at the blank icon for UU.

Also for Internet Explorer(8) just right click the favorites button of favicon you want to update, select properties and you can change the Icon.
