How does one obtain for one's own site avatars similar to those which appear in some address windows? For PF the avatar appears as a "check" in a square yellow field.

They're called favicons. See the external links at the bottom of that article for resources. This online convertor is particularly useful. :smile:

Incidentally, PF's favicon is a vBulletin logo default.

1. What is "Avatar in the address window"?

"Avatar in the address window" refers to the small icon or image that appears in the address bar of a web browser when you visit a website. It is also known as a favicon, short for "favorite icon".

2. Why is an avatar important for a website?

An avatar serves as a visual representation of a website or brand and can help make it more recognizable and memorable to visitors. It also adds a professional and polished touch to the overall design of the website.

3. How do I add an avatar to my website?

To add an avatar to your website, you will need to create a small image (usually 16x16 pixels) and save it as a .ico file. Then, you can upload the file to the root directory of your website and add a link to it in the <head> section of your HTML code using the <link> tag. Alternatively, you can use a favicon generator tool to create and add the favicon for you.

4. Can I use any image as an avatar?

No, not all image formats can be used as avatars. The most commonly used format for avatars is .ico, but some browsers also support .png, .gif, and .jpg formats. It is important to check the compatibility of the image format with different browsers before using it as an avatar.

5. How can I change my website's avatar?

To change your website's avatar, you will need to replace the old .ico file with a new one and update the link to the new file in your HTML code. Make sure to clear your browser's cache to see the changes. Alternatively, if you are using a content management system, there may be an option to change the website's avatar in the website's settings or customization menu.
