2 Easy Ideas That Would Rock!
December 22, 2010 at 2:22 am #260
Your theme is already awesome and the best I’ve found for WordPress so thank you very much for your work! I’ve just got 2 simple ideas that I think would be great additions.
1) Make an option to set the website favicon using a URL or file from your media gallery. I used to have a great one and I lost it when I switched to your theme.
2) Make the header able to be an active .gif file so a user could create a header that changes colors and/or images in a very simple manner.
With or without these fixes you themed is still sweet! Thanks again.

1) The latest version of the theme already checks for the presence of a
favicon.icofile in the WordPress root directory. If the file exists, it will automatically add the appropriate
<link>element in the
<head>to use the favicon.
2) The Custom Header function is provided by WordPress and not the theme. I think if you can find or create animated .gif image with a resolution of 900 x 198 pixels then you can upload the animated .gif and use it without WordPress needing to crop and save it as a .jpg file.AdminJanuary 17, 2011 at 3:56 am #11769
favicon.ico is a special image file that needs to be saved as an icon file, which means that you can’t just use any image file that has been renamed to *.ico file.
Try this .ico file I generated for you: http://www.khairul-syahir.com/files/evelyn-favicon.ico
You can download a free plugin for Photoshop that allows you to save an image file as an icon file here: http://www.telegraphics.com.au/sw/
I see the favicon in the browser URL box for Safari, but not firefox or IE.
I use the program xnview http://www.xnview.com
It has a “save as” to save image files as .ico files. I thought that would work.

It does show in Firefox when I view the website now.
