    Ive attempted a C9 icon - so thats what my link will be in IE.. it looks pretty good on desktop - but at 16 x 16 its pretty bad haha

    see below for sample.. here's a zip  of the .ico file as well as the head psd... maybe someone else can "repair" the 16 x 16  ( the circle white head i find hard to replicate at that size..   maybe just a "9" no image at that res.. not sure





    Side note:  Why cant i make the icons on the IE "links" bar - big?  it should work like the other icons.. ie; "Customise" on right click

    Thanks Jamie..I'll play with it a little and see if there is anything that can be done ythat you haven't already. You might be correct on the 9 only.

    Quick question...I've been unable to figure out how to post a picture in a thread? Could you let me know how you posted the screen caps?

    Thanks

    Jamie, my avatar is a 16 x 16 icon, you can tell when you go into my profile because it looks blurry. Which I "found" and thought was pretty cool so I used it. But it shall soon be changed, once I find the pic I want...

    I like your website thing, the part where you have smileys Smiley is my fav. Also whats the picture of in the reply you posted above? For some reason I can't see it.

    Its the best feature of this forum..

    - open any webpage..

    - right click any image - say copy

    - come back here and say - paste

    thats it

    if the image is not on a page - paste its url in IE and load it - do same as above

    or For fun copy anything you want and paste it in.. grab google and paste it in

    ( it wont work right now - but it did before the edit post bug)
    you can also use an iframe:

    yes - what ever it is needs to be online..  ( http:// bla bla )

    Speaking in general about this feature I love it, but you guys realise that damage that could be done by malicious people using it ... right?

    Like in that i frame above - someone could have pasted a looping reloading pop up porn etc..  perhaps even blowing up browser..  they could do it all over the site..

    I only mention it as I have an asp interface much the same ( with the pasting) * see below; but no one will use it as it's "too dangerous"  ( various asp portal sites i work with.)  Thanks for the ammo: "Channel 9 uses this - you should too!"  but arnt you worried? Also - as i said - i love the feature - please dont just /remove it/


    * how i wish Word worked lol
    ** mine can cut/copy/paste..unlike the c9 one Wink

    *geocities seems to have a caching prob - or they block external URLs like Tripod does?

    ( if you click the URL to image it is there, come back here, image is here..

    i dunno - works on my regular hosted sites..
