New Start Page Images, how do I change my sites one?
Right now, you can't. But the speed dial that you use is only an experimental one, and that one seem to has been discontinued, because the latest developer edition comes with another experimental speed dial. In that one you can't do it either, but as you can change the picture in bookmarks, it feels reasonable that one should be able to change it in speed dial too, so I think that the feature will be added.
If it is his page, he can. He needs a link in his page headers like this:
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="http://wp.traceyroad.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/design8-3_plain-gray-01-150x150.png">
(to your own image, of course)
Thanks, that's changing the favicon - how can I do it without changing the favicon?
On my small website I have two lines in my head tag:
<link rel="icon" href="http://website.com/favicon.png
<link rel="icon" href="http://website.com/favicon.ico
That way I have a normal favicon and a speed dial image. I don't remember the recommended size for the .png, but mine is 256x160.
I do sometimes see the image gone from my speed dial, but because I normally use Opera Beta I can't really complain
The HTML markup for icons is like this (Apple-touch-icon for SpeedDial, favicon for tab and bookmark list):
<link href="http://website.com/favicon.ico" rel="icon" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon"> <link href="http://website.com/apple-touch-icon.png" rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" type="image/png">
