If you bookmark / add to your Favorites my main page or
any other page from my web-site, you should get a distinct wee icon associated
with it. On most of the site's pages this is a Venus Fly-Trap, though
there is also a cactus on the Castaneda
pages (under /Shamanism
and a mushroom under the /Shrooms
Icons with Microsoft Internet Explorer
If you haven't got the icon, say it's disappeared after being there a while,
note that icons can be a bit idiosyncratic, especially with Microsoft Internet
Explorer. If you already
have the page / web-site marked as a favorite, simply deleting
and re-adding to your Favorites again may simply have no effect.
If you are having problems getting the icons, or you want to make sure that
they don't disappear as a result of being automatically deleted from temporary
folders at a later date, then there may be a number of clever things you can do
to get round it. I have had different results with different methods.
But the following advice is pretty sure to get you them if you are using Microsoft
Internet Explorer as your browser.
Basically, I suggest picking up the icons from your Temporary Internet Files
folder after having addressed them using the full URL. Actually, simply
referring to any page that uses these icons should be enough to get them into
the Temporary Internet Files folder, but anyway, the full addresses for my icons
- The Venus Fly-Trap icon
- The mushroom icon
- The cactus icon
You can now find the icons in the Temporary Internet Files folder. To ensure
their long-term survival, and before you change icon properties on your Favorites, you
will want to copy somewhere on your hard drive.
After doing the above, simply add the pages you want to your Favorites
and change the Properties (e.g. via right-click mouse when
over the selected favourite from the Favorites drop down menu). On
the 'Web Document' tab, click the Change Icon... button, then Browse...
to find required icon.
